seizures during pregnancy. Raegan & Luke's Momma 2 kids; Oklahoma 17345 posts
19th Feb

I am 5 weeks pregnant. ive began having seizures since my last pregnancy. my first was in June 2012. and my second was last month. both occurred on the same day I had a migraine. Ive had migraines every 30-45 days for the last 11 years. my next migraine should happen within the next 10 days.

I went to the ob yesterday to get a referral to a neurologist but said he wont do anything until babys heartbeat is detectable. once it is, if I have a seizure he wants me to come in to be monitored.

Have any of you had seizures during your pregnancy and was everything okay? my migraines are caused from a traumatic brain injury. I hate seizures. theyre so freaky and make me have a ton of anxiety, panicky, and feel like theres fuzz all over my body. I really hope I dont have another one.

any advice? or anything I should ask or tell the dr? I see the neurologist next thursday.

the  first seizure I had I was asleep and my husband said I sat up and stared at him and then started convulsing.

the second seizure I woke up in the middle of thr night and couldnt sleep so I was on my tablet talking to my friend.... the next thing I knew my tablet was in my lap..so I thought I had fallen aslep mid conversation but I went back to sleep and when I woke up I had a peach fuzz feeling all over my body and I was anxious and panicky and I cried a lot. I didnt convulse so I think I just lost consciousness.

I dont know anything about seizures.

Have you seen a Dr. for it?
The first sounds like a Grand Mal seizure to me(My dad has those)
My nephew has tonic clonic seizures & grand mal, the tonic clonic seizures you don't actually convulse, you just kind of space out,  don't remember anything... You might be having both, I'm not sure if there is any medication you can take while pregnant though.
So you'll have to ask your Dr. about that, I'm sure having seizures while you're pregnant isn't good though.
