I had it with my first My doctor didnt catch it until I was around 36 wks bcz my BP was fine when I went in But I had almost all of the other symptoms. The high BP didn't show up until the last 2 wks. I was induced at 39 wks because of it. Now I am experiencing a lot of the same things and when I try to tell my doctor he just blows me off like I'm an idiot Am I just crazy or do I have it again? If so how the hell do I get my doctor to listen?
My symptoms are swollen feet and ankles Yes normal in pregnancy but I have only had minor swelling until a few days ago & the doubled in size and leave indents for 30+ sec. if you push on them
Headaches (tylonel doesnt help, Ive had them for the last 2-3 weeks)
Extreme lower back pain (more than usual (the last week and a half)
Seeing lights (off and on for a few weeks its like bugs)
and this past week I gained around 8lbs I havent changed my diet and Ive been more active!
