So, today my back has been super uber stiff, then during lunch I started getting nauseous. When we got back from lunch I took a long hot shower, I let the hot water run on my back and stretched it. I got a slight pop out of it and it feels more like cramping than stiff now. I'm on and off nauseous. I'm sleepy tired like if I close my eyes I could fall asleep. I have a funny taste in my mouth (could be the nausea?) and a slight pain occasionally in my upper right side (below my bra line).
I've NEVER had high blood pressure, even with pregnancy. However, I've had hypothyroidism for years and up until last year, but then it evened itself out and I've been good with each blood check through this pregnancy. I noticed my throat feels kinda thick to the touch, so I'm wondering if that's off all of a sudden. I read online that pre-E and hypothyroidism can go together.
I'm not swollen, I'm not contracting (that I know of), my head doesn't hurt but feels "off". Baby's moving just fine and currently has a minor case of the hiccups (either that or my lower belly is twitching).
I wish I could go to bed early tonight, but the boys are pushing their bed time limits with me and they are even more horrendous for MIL.
I'm at LEAST an hour away from my doctor and hospital of choice (not that they'd keep me if labor was imminent). Anwyay. I just feel kinda like crap. but I'm not willing to go in or call my doc yet.
I'll let you all know how I'm feeling tomorrow, or I will text a friend to post something if I go in to ER here.

Sorry you're feeling so crummy.
I have Grave's Disease so I used to be hyperthyroid but I had my thyroid surgically removed in 2008 so now I'm hyperthyroid. Your symptoms could be your thyroid, but they rarely come on suddenly, it's more gradual. When was the last time they checked your levels?
If you throat feels kind of thick it could be swollen glands and you could be coming down with something.
I know it's never fun to be sick on vacation, but oddly enough, Brandon always gets sick when we're out of town. Urgent care is usually much cheaper and quicker than ER visits, if your insurance covers. it. We were just in urgent care this morning, not for me but for the little guy.
You've really had a rough pregnancy so far. Hopefully you will feel better and won't need to see the doctor.

Sorry you're feeling so yucky. Hopefully it's just the weather, or a cold or something coming on and you won't need to see a Dr. Go lay down and get some rest, hope you feel better!

I agree with Lenora- it could be swollen glands indicating that you're coming down with something. I hope it's just a minor cold and nothing serious. Either way, hope you feel better ASAP!!! Keep us posted- it's so hard when you're away from home and trying to figure out the best thing to do!
Sorry your feeling crummy I hope you start feeling better and it's nothing serious.
