I have been getting very sharp pains in my lower stomach, almost bad enough to make me cry. I know my baby girl is very low but I have been feeling her up higher today. And earlier today I was at my cousins baby shower and i saw little floaties or kinda like sparkles in my vision and I felt very light headed. Also when I lay down my pinky on my left hand goes numb. Is this normal or what should I do?

When i saw sparkles in front of my face i had pre eclampsia....the pinky numbness is normal or at least normal for me---this preg I have random body parts go numb all the time. If you dont have a way to check your BP at home id all your OB office and speak to an on call nurse and ask what they think

Have you been drinking a lot of water? You could be dehydrated..

When are you due? I'd call L&D (or your OB and either talk to a triage nurse or leave a message for our OB to call you back) and see if they want you to come in and get checked out

Most likely, you are just dehydrated. You are still quite early for them to worry too much about pre-eclampsia. Put your feet up, drink lots of water and get some rest. :)

That sounds very strange! I would go to the ER just to make sure everything is alright! It can't hurt to be too careful.
