I think you need to find a doctor, speak to your OBGYN if you had one or a general practitioner about this.  It doesn’t seem like your midwife is taking your complaints seriously.

And I hope you take this well but maybe you should talk to a therapist?  Some women become depressed or excessively anxious during pregnancy and need treatment.

@ames12708:  Oh no, I don’t have anything to say that can help you, but I’m sorry you’re having a hard time. I hope that you start feeling better soon.

It might help you to remember that you’re not *sick*, you’re pregnant. You’re still a healthy person who is just going through normal weird pregnancy symptoms. The more you fight it the worse it makes you feel mentally, just relax and accept it as part of what you have to do to grow another human. 🙂 You’re almost halfway there so if you’ve made it this far you can make it to the end!!!

@ames12708:  hey =) i have occasional negative days and i think it does really help to vent occasionally

pregnancy can be tough! and it might not be an illness but at times… it feels like one, an illness with no cure but time haha.  i find it makes it worse when people ask excitedly how the pregnancy is going, and then look disappointed if the answer is anything other than sunshine and rainbows

something that  you really emjoy and that makes you feel good as a treat. for me, every i have started to have prenatal massage days followed by  trying a new restaurant with a friend (im going today for the 2nd time!). it feels good, relaxes me and reminds me that life is as much about me and my happiness as it is about “The Baby” (capital letters since we dont know the gender yet)

Remember, you’re not sick — you’re pregnant!  Our bodies think that a pregnancy is a parasite in the beginning… which is why we are so sick.  It’s like the body is trying to fight it off for us.   Hang in there!  You’ll get through it. But I agree with a few previous posters.  Your pregnancy might become high-risk… especially due to high BP (if that comes back).  Find an OBGYN and your midwife can still assist — but I think you should be monitored by a doctor.

@ames12708:  Geez — forget I even said anything.  May I “suggest” that you be more gracious when people try to offer advice and help when you ask for it?

Since it has been so difficult for you to drink so much water, could you try having all natural ice pops, watermelon, lightly flavored water (think sliced fruit or lemon in it), or having low sodium soups as part of your meals?  These things would help you get the water you need without you feeling like you need to constantly be drinking.  Good luck with the final 21 weeks, almost halfway there!

@ames12708:  I’m only 7w6d and I’ve been having heart palpitations too!  I haven’t called the doc yet, but if they keep up at this pace I might – even if all they’re going to say is “its ok”
