  • Definately lay down! My friends arm went all numb during her pregnancy and it turned out to be from too much acidic foods. She had felt just awful all morning before going in. Keep the phone nearby for when the obgyn calls back. Also sounds like you'll need a ride if you do need to go in, so make sure you have that set up incase the OBGYN needs you to go in right away. I hope you start feeling better.
