I'm 30wks pregnant & in need of advice...

I know every pregnancy is different but my first two pregnancies were difficult & this one wasn't until now :( I can't sleep or sit, stand, or do anything without being in pain because of my arms. They get super swollen & numb (such an awful feeling) I will elevate my feet or lay on my left side but nothing seems to work. I can't eat comfortably or sleep :( I wake up every half hour crying because I'm in so much pain! Both of my arms feel like they're being pocked by needles :'( PLEASE IF YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE ON WHAT I CAN DO TO HELP IT I'D GREATLY APPRECIATE IT!

I have but all he says is "it's part of pregnancy" or "lay at a 35° angle but not on your back" which I do but it's not helping & I've told him that 2x already :'(

Oh i also developed pre e and had my son at 37 weeks via emergency c section. Keep an eye on that since youre swelling. Hows your blood pressure?

If it's hurting that bad I'd probably ask my ob if I could come in & have them check me to see if there was anything they could do. I don't know if it would help but maybe a nice soak in a warm tub & some lavender bubble bath or candles just to help u relax a bit. My Ob also said I could take Tylenol when I was preggers so maybe that would help.

I just went to the doctor's yesterday & the first time they checked it was high but then they checked again & it was normal... I didn't pass my first glucose test & I have to retest tomorrow... :'(
