Well, I am 8w today and I think m/s is finally hitting. I have been feeling icky for a little over a week, but today I have felt even worse -- kinda gaggy, queasy and gross. I am still incredibly tired.
Also (and a much more serious concern): I had a headache at work all day yesterday afternoon and towards the end of the day, the vision in my right eye, the outside perphial vision became swirly/blurry. I went downstairs to the clinic to check with the midwife on duty. She had me get my blood pressure checked and it was high for me: 143/70. The vision thing was freaking me out. She had me go home an rest (after I told her about our friend who died 12/28 and how stressful everything is these days and that I would be seeing my RE for a progestrone shot this morning and I promised to talk with them about the b/p)
So this morning, the b/p was even higher: 146/82. The RE wasn't a concerned as the midwife (especially after I told him all that was going on). The blurry vision thing is gone but the headache (dull ache) remains. He said he wants me to keep monitoring the b/p and try not to freak out about it. He said this just happens sometimes, even in early pregnancy.
There is a b/p machine at our area target (about a mile away) so I am going to check it there everyday this weekend. The check this evening was better: 135/73.
Any suggestions on keeping my b/p down? The midwife suggested massage (but we really don't have the $ and insurance won't cover it) and my regular doc has been trying to get me into a DO who does osteopathic manipulation therapy and she called to say today that my insurance told her they won't cover that, either. ugh.
trying not to stress....
