37 weeks pregnant, I NEED HELP!!

Lately, I have been seeing spots. They would come and go & my eyes were really red & itchy, so I thought it was allergies, took some Claritin & eye drops. Well, today, I have had blurred vision in my one eye, can barely see & a severe headache that won't go away with tylenol. My BP has always been good at the doctor's. But, this is starting to get really annoying. I don't want to go to the ER, b/c it's Saturday & the doc's office is closed. Has anyone else experienced this? Can this wait to Monday? Or should I maybe go to an Urgent Care?

  • It sounds like it could be hypertention, my dr said to get checked out fast if you have those symptoms. Good luck.

  • That doesn't sound normal. Call your doctor's office, they should be on an exchange and the doctor on duty can call you back and let you know what you should do. Good luck!

  • If you do go the ER chances are you might not wait long, the triage might put you in first because you are pregnant.

  • I have iritis. Inflammation of the color part of my eye. I have to go see an eye doc on monday & have a bunch of tests done to make sure I don't have all these different diseases... =( It's very painful & also causing my headaches.
