I'm getting worried :( piog--- mini update

I'm 16 weeks, 3 days and spent yesterday in the ER. I went to take a shower and could barely wash my hair. My arms felt so heavy and it wore me out just to have my arms up. My head started feeling weird and I was seeing spots in my vision. My mil is a nurse so I had her come take my blood pressure. It was 170/100 so I called the hospital and they said to come in. While I was there I had blood work and iv fluids along with an EKG. Everything came back okay yesterday but they are still having me do a 24 hour urine collection just in case. I also got a script for blood pressure medication. Fast forward to last night. I took the medicine and felt bad almost immediately and ended up puking. This morning I woke up feeling better. I had to do my urine collection so I stayed home from church. I had to call my husband half way through though because I started feeling bad like yesterday in the shower and thought I might pass out. My mil came and took my blood pressure again and it was 180/90. My arms feel so heavy and I was exhausted from having them lifted long enough to put a dab of foundation on my face. I had to keep sitting down because I was worn out. I noticed I have a dark red rash on my chin/ along my jaw line and above my eyes under my brows. I am supposed to call tomorrow and make a follow up appointment with my OB tomorrow to discuss 24 hour urine results. I'm a sahm with a 21 month old and it's very hard to chase him around as I get lightheaded and weak when I get up. I don't want to go back to the ER but I'm worried something is very wrong.

Also, I've been drinking plenty but only gone pee three times today. The nurse told me to pee when I woke up and then start my collection. I peed at 8:30 and didn't again until 2:30 and finally just again at 5:30. So I only have two pees for my collection so far :/

Sorry it's so long, I'll be calling my OB in the morning but I was just hoping I could get some thoughts about what's happening :(

Update- sorry if this makes no sense or if there are typos! I got some shots in my butt for my head and they are running more blood work. They freaked mr out though when they were trying to find baby's heartbeat. Little booger was hiding behind my pubic bone and being shy. I will update with blood work results when I get them if I'm still awake. I'm feeling pretty loopy right now. Thanks for all of the concern. I hope this al gets figured out soon!

That's bad news. gl

Did they check your iron? Sounds like how I felt when I was anemic with my twins kinda.

Yeah.. I would call the emergency line at your observed office.. or call the maternity ward at your hospital. That's nothing you want to mess with, especially while you'really pregnant.

I'm not sure if they did or not. They took at least 5 tubes of blood though.
