Whats wrong??

I have been up since 4:30am (its now 11:00am my time) with a splitting headache and feeling sick to my stomach. I had a non-stress test at 8:45 and went and my heart rate was only 70 bpm and my blood pressure was 110/61 which seemed really low. While I was in the office getting my test done I told the nurse I felt like someone was sitting on my chest and I was getting dizzy. They got me a cold wet rag. That helped..NOT! But anyway, they sent me home and said everything was fine but I have a splitting headache, feel sick to my stomach, still dizzy and when I was walking up the stairs I almost fainted. Is this normal? BTW I am 34weeks 4days pregnant with twins..if that makes a difference. Should I just try to lay down and sleep? And I am NOT dehydrated. Thanks!

  • go take a bath and eat some lunch then go lay down and take a nap...i felt the same way and i was sent home at 34 weeks and now im 36 weeks and today they are going to see if my baby is big enough to come out cuz my fluid is low

  • it sound like u might be a little anemic, have u been drinking lots of fluids? headaches are a sign of dehydratation. try eating something with a little sugar to bring up ur blood pressure (it'll take away the fainting feeling) orange juice works good, try taking a warm bath and keep ur legs elavetaed. hope u feel better soon!!!
