Well, I've always worried about pre-eclampsia (& that can still happen) but I had a near fainting incident in the shower today. I've fainted quite a bit in my life; it's not pretty & feminine like in the movies, lol. But every single time was due to dehydration & one scary vomiting/faint coming out of anesthesia. This has never happened to me before while pregnant & I was unnerved.
I am drinking a ton & had downed a quart of water before bed. I'm trying to implement more efficiency in my day & winding up the alarm clock to start off right. It scared me awake so I very nearly jumped out of bed.& our house is about 60 degrees in the morning so a hot shower is how I start. I had to sit down under the shower several times when the tell-tale fuzzy vision & roaring in my ears began. I also felt like simultaneously vomiting & loosening my bowels.
My fingers were still tingling while making breakfast & I had to sit several times during that as well so I asked husband to check my blood pressure & it was 85/50.
But I google said it was normal for week 20 & gave it the very proper name of hypotension. Is anyone else handling this? My blood pressure is always normal to low but not to this end of the spectrum.
