This is what you shouldn’t do. You shouldn’t let bad things happening at work get to you in such a way as to have a headache all day yesterday. Then, when you get home and sit down, you shouldn’t start seeing spots in front of your eyes that are swimming in swirls. I knew this was something to be worried about so I rushed to look up stuff, and yes these are the two main signs of pre-eclampsia.
Mark was out walking the dog while there was an electrician here looking at the house on behalf of the buyer, along with the buyer, so I called NHS Direct for advice. When they finally called me back (while I waited and panicked slightly), the nurse was actually going to call me an ambulance. I’m like, no, really, I’m not dying, he can take me.
So we had to kick out the people and just take off to Northwick Park. I got assessed right away, and my first blood pressure reading was high but the second one was okay. And still no protein in my urine. So I knew that I was okay, but we still had to wait to see the doctor for like almost 2 hours.
Have been ordered off of work for a couple of days. Great, you might think. But today I was going to try to resolve some of this stuff with my manager, and I’m worried I’ve missed the opportunity, and I am going to go back to a bit (a BIG bit) of a mess. But am trying not to think about it all or I will start seeing spots again…
Anyway, gave me an opportunity during a mini-shop to buy a body pillow! Found a super cheap one in a funny little store called Tchibo. Will test it out soon.
