So I saw my high risk doctor today who isn’t happy at all with the blackouts. He does believe they’re related to the migraines. Here is the kicker – there is NO TREATMENT for it while I’m pregnant. The medications I need aren’t safe during pregnancy.
So basically I have to just put up with it until delivery. This wasn’t the news I wanted to hear because I can just be sitting down and completely black out. I can be walking to the bathroom and black out. It’s random when it comes and the only warning I have when it’s about to happen is I feel really nauseated and hot seconds before.
No need for hospitalization right now because they can’t treat it. Basically I’m the same as I’ve always been – on strict bedrest (to avoid falling). I’ll do the ultrasound on Monday which will look at all the babies’ parts – make sure everything looks okay. I know that’s the only thing that matters – that the babies are healthy. But it sure would make life easier if I wasn’t so sick all the time.
Thanks for your prayers.
