I hate pestering people when there's probably nothing wrong but I've had a headache all day, not really bad though. I feel fuzzy headed if that makes sense and I've just started seeing black floaters in my vision. I'm sure I remember black being ok though and it was grey you should worry about, or have I made that up? I don't think my local hospital has staff on at the weekend, just on call midwives, so I really don't want to over react if it could wait til tomorrow if I still feel weird. I'm 35+1

Is that a BP related thing? I'd make the call, worst case scenario it's nothing and you are reassured. You will kick yourself if something happens and you didn't call x

Yes call ally if your worried you should...

Ring. They can always check your bp and send you on your way if its fine. If it is that you need seeing to

I think you should ring up, better to get checked out than sit at home worrying x

Thanks all, will try and find a number and give them a call

WTS....Anything out of the ordinary that makes you question just ring. My MW told me they would much rather that than you sit at home worrying about it. Sure all will be fine but just not worth taking a chance x

Hope you managed to get seen xc

Thanks for all the replies, phoned the only number I have and it was an answer phone - pretty sure cos it's a tiny CMU that they are just on call at weekends. Managed to get a sleep and feeling better so going to phone in the morning and see if I can get an antenatal check up rather than waiting for my appt on Thursday.

Hope you get seen tomorrow. If it gets worse then don't be afraid to go to OOH or even A&E. Better to be safe, and feel slightly silly/paranoid, than sorry.

definitely get checked out today. Ask for your urine to be dipped and your BP measured. If you can't get in with a MW ask your GP practice nurse to do this. Very important.

WEES - definitely make sure you get checked today, be that with your midwife, GP, or if needs be, a&e.

Thanks everyone, back home now and everything ok. Trace of protein in urine but BP was fine. Pulse really fast but she wasn't bothered by that. They put a trace on baby and mw was happy with it but when she got doc to check it she wasn't happy so I had to go back on it for half an hour. All good tho and they think headache prob just hormone related!
