38 weeks and experience scary symptoms.

Currently 38 weeks, will be 39 weeks Sunday, and I was just wanting to know if any other mommies have had a horrific pregnancy? My body and pregnancy were not made for each other lol. I wanted to know if any moms are experiencing weird symptoms? Example, since my second trimester I've been experiencing daily headaches, I get mild numbness and tingling on left side of my face, I feel like my left eyelid seems a little more dropped than my right, I've even noticed my left eye to be a little more dilated than right at times. I never ever ever experienced any of these symptoms until I became pregnant. They scare me because I see that these symptoms can be a sign of a brain tumor or aneurysm or stroke. I went to a neurologist and she said she didn't see any reason to do any emergency testing. She said that she has seen these things in pregnant women before. Idk, I'm just scared I've developed something serious during pregnancy and the doctors don't want to do anything because of baby. I've dealt with this since February and I'm due the 20th of this month. Hoping and praying that these horrid problems go away after I have our daughter. I know this is a long post but if any other mom is or has experienced these symptoms please share! Thank you!

Oh, my blood pressure has been fine so I know it's not pre-eclampsia or any of that. Also, I always feel my pulse in left side of head, especially when I am laying down. I feel my pulse going and it beats in my head. Is that normal?

I had the same things with my eyes during my first trimester. Dont worry.. once your baby is born, you ll be a normal person again! Lol

I've heard of eyes changing and needing glasses while pregnant and a few other odd things. It sounds scary what your going through, I'm sure once you have your baby girl you'll go back to normal. The baby is probably sitting on a big nerve or something :(

I know some one who had similar issues not necessarily when pregnant and it was bells palsey it can last a while but usually goes away on its own I believe.
