I would check myself into labor and delivery and get checked out by those guys. Same thing happened to me. My hospital admitted me until I delivered. Better to check it out and be safe.

My personal opinion is that you should go to the ER or at the very least speak to the on call doctor about your situation. Headaches can be normal during pregnancy but, if they are associated with preeclampsia it can mean that your nervous system is being affected and you could be at risk for a seizure. Also, pe can go from mild to severe quickly, sometimes even within a matter of hours. It is just not worth the risk to wait out the night if your health and the health of your baby could be in jeopardy. Let us know what you end up doing!

(doc was sick today, hopefully is back tomorrow) what could this be? how can i get through a night with this pain or should i go to er even though its the same as i went to doc today. plz help!
