I had a few questions- sorry to be using you all to see if anyone is in the same boat but I haven't really found anyone else going through the same thing. And you've all given some pretty amazing advice along each others journeys!
Some of you may have remembered my scare at 20weeks. Baby girl had bilateral choroid plexus cysts etc. Everything was ruled out and the cysts thankfully eventually disolved. Well, since they had sent me to a perinatologist from the beginning with that issue..I've continued to see them throughout the rest of this pregnancy this far. One very odd symptom that has progressed lately is my ocular migraines with aura's. The specialists thinks it's a warning sign of Pre-E....although so far, BP is perfect and my 24 hour urine has also come back fine. All office visit urine tests also have been fine.
Basically what happens is 30 minutes before I get a horrible migraine....I can't see right. My vision becomes blurry and I really can't do any reading or driving because of it. Then 30 or so minutes later I get a horrible migraine, two tylenol seem to help but definitely don't take it away and I end up going to bed (they all seem to happen later in the evening) with a bad headache.
I guess my few questions are these; Anyone else experiencing these specific ocular migraines with or without auras? If you did/do....did it end up being related to Pre-E? Also, the doc has recommended I get weekly NSTs and US's. This is worrisome to me. I want to make sure baby is ok....but I also don't want to do unnecessary US's on her, as many have talked about the very real possibility of us just not knowing the long term effects of them. I'm grateful that they are being proactive, don't get me wrong. And yesterday....seeing my little girl in 3D at the office...was just about the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life (I'll link a pic- just in case anyone cares lol), but I also just want to be sure that it isn't getting to be "too much"?
Any suggestions, past experiences etc.....all welcomed and appreciated.
