I have been having hot flashes, constant diarrhea, headaches, high pulse, fast heartbeat, shaking, sort of high blood pressure, excessive thirst, frequent urination, blurred vision, floaters, face, hand & ankle swelling, lower back pain, braxton contractions, kidney pain. Ive been tested for gestational diabetes about 4 weeks ago and came back negative. Always have my urine checked for uti & vaginal infections that too comes back negative for anything. Been having constant diarrhea with hot flashes, headaches, lower back pain, frequent urination & kidney pain for the past 3 weeks straight. Along with blurred vision, floaters, fast heart rate, shaking, excessive thirst, face ankle & hand swelling.

When was the last time they checked your urine for protein and how high is your b/p? Did they screen for kidney stones? The diarrhea can be normal but could be a virus too. Either way it usually passes.

That is my thought as well. Wonder what the bps was and the urine check for protein. Go to L&D to be checked.

5 days ago was my ob appointment where they checked my urine

3 days ago when I went to my local hospital that supposedly checked my urine (and had the nerve to say I had been drinking water and my urine was clear when I hadn't drank any water at all for a week)

No tests were taken besides the usual urine sample. Then the contraction & baby heart monitor. Then they had been watching my pulse on the monitor (was very high that the machine kept going off due to a high pulse) and I cant remember what my blood pressure was because it changed by what position I was in.

I have four kids, all full term.  I have NEVER had these symptoms!

OP, if they insisted your urine was clear, they might have mixed up the samples.  I'd go back in, something is definitely off.
