  • The fact that you have gestational diabetes and hypertension explains it to me. Those are symptoms of both, seeing as you've been diagnosed with them already. 30 weeks is still very early so I am fairly certain they wouldn't deliver. Have you taken your blood pressure? If you can check it, do so and if it is very high then go to the ER tonight. If not...take it easy. Prop your feet up, put a cool wash cloth on your head and just close your eyes for a minute. If you don't start feeling better then it might be safe to go. If you start feeling better then don't go but def. call your docs office and see if you can speak with a nurse or another doc and let them know what's going on. They will probably want to see you. GL!

  • Are you dehydrated? Is your blood sugar okay? I agree with javila, she's right on track. You're better off safe than sorry, it's not worth something happening. It's better to be sent home embarrassed.
