Hi, I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I am having really bad headaches that started about a week ago and they have gotten worse, and now I have a little bit of blurry vision and feel dizzy and nauseated. I have also been having a lot of swelling in my legs, feet and hands. If any of you have had these symptoms please share your stories and what caused these symptoms and how you relieved them... thanks.

I am 36 weeks pregnant and have had bad headaches my entire pregnancy. Have you had any protein or anything show up in your urine? If not then it shouldnt be anything to worry about. Drink plenty of water and take tylenol if that helps you. Tylenol hasnt worked for me. I am about to die with it lol and the doctors say its normal for the headaches to be that bad as long as my bllod pressures stay good and dont have high levels of protein. :) Good luck and if your really worried about it call your doctor and see what they tell you. Hope you get to feeling better soon.

My blood pressure has been low like around 110/60 for the whole pregnancy and before the pregnancy until today when I tested it was 132/94, Im not really sure what is too high though. And last time I was at the doctors office they said I had a trace of protein in my urine, but they didn't seem to be worried about it so it must not of been too much.

Blood pressure being up can cause a bad headache. Have you been overly stressed out? If so just try to take it easy. I had high blood pressure with my first pregnancy and had to be induced because I passed out with it. When they induced me the babys heart rate dropped drastically down to like 90!!!!! It was all stress related! Keep calm and relax. And a trace I wouldnt be too too worried about that. I had plus1 protein in my urine just a few weeks ago and then a day later I had none lol. It can flucuate.

If you're having bad headaches, swelling and an increase in your BP when it was usually a bit lower before, I would check with your doctor just to rule out anything like preeclampsia.
