  • you should go to the doctors. shortness of breath and being dizzy is normal late in pregnancy but idk about seeing spots..

  • I did have these symptoms and when i went to the dr. I had preclampsia (however you spell it) I went to the dr because i was scared and i ended up having to be induced because my blood pressure was so high. You need to get checked out because if you blood pressure gets high and you develop preclampsia then your organs will start shutting down and it can be fatal.

  • I agree with abbibaileylily it sounds like preeclamsia or hypertension they both can be very serious if it gets worse i would go to the ER, if it is doable and you can handle it then you can wait and make a dr appointment tomarrow but i would reccomend the ER. Good luck.

  • I agree with the other pp's. I had pre-eclampsia and it can be very serious. I would call your dr. to let them know what's going on then go to L&D or the ER. Don't take any chances with your health or the babies health.

  • That happened to me when I would get very stressed or upset while pregnant. I would need to get away from what was upsetting me and calm down.
