Okay this might sound really strange.. But did anybody wake up during pregnancy with a really bad feeling and just feel really unwell? I'm only 25+3 so it's not exactly the end of my pregnancy but I've woken up feeling so ill and I have a really bad feeling about the day...It just been reading stories where people have had this and gone into early labour or had to have early c sections because they've got silent pre eclampsia etc. and now I've shit myself pretty much..Any advice? What would you do if you really didn't feel good and had a bad feeling? I'd sound such a prat phoning a midwife and telling her so but normally when I have a bad feeling, something bad happens! I don't want to exactly 'waste' a midwives time over a 'bad feeling' but now I think of it, I have had headaches and mild swelling to my feet & ankles. Also have a niggly pain in my bump too but all movements are normal! I just don't to overthink and let my mind take over! Any help would be appreciatedThank you!

I think to reassure yourself you should contact your midwife and tell her you've been having quite a few headaches and noticed your ankles had swollen already. The fact you didn't mention your hands were puffy is good but the mw will probably just take your BP and reassure you. Maybe a urine test. But maybe going with definite problems would be more helpful than saying you have a "bad feeling". Good luck!! x

thanks for replying! I did contact her in the end! I did indeed have protein in my urine and my blood pressure was higher than normal! As iv had pre eclampsia before they're going to be monitoring me every few days x

I'm glad you sought advice and they are going to monitor you. I think sometimes just need to listen to our bodies. Take care and hope you feel better soon

Yep, trust your instincts.
I have a similar story but I won't give it. It has a happy ending though.
