So I don't know what to do I've had mild tight chest for days put it down to baby on my ribs and reflux so I've been having loads rennies and paracetamol anyways this morning around 5 am I woke up went to toilet came back laid down and felt like tightness in right side of throat had a drink and fell back to sleep woke up at 8 got breakfast and ever since breakfast I've had heavy dull painful arms this then moved to my chest and back again thought it'll be baby I them was cleaning when I got prickling under left breast thought I best get a bra on as it must be from them filling and the heaviness well after all my excuses I'm still sat here in pain all day both arms chest shoulder blades elbow has been really uncomfortable tonight my ears new hurting and this tight feeling is back in my throat ! I Googled and as Google does its told me I'm dying and I need to ring 999 straight away ! Saying from heart attack to blood clot ect and all these stories of pregnant women having heart attacks well my OH is out and I have the kids alone and I'm now sitting here wondering whether I'm getting some sort of flu or whether I'm in fact about to die ! I can't stop cuddling the kids I've not put them to bed and they have a routine I'm a absolute mess ! How can I be bringing another chikd into this world when I can't even look after myself? I can't control my self with worry does this sound like a heart attack should I ring 999 or 111 ? Even though 111 will send a ambulance I know for a fact ! It's a risk as if I ring them out to be told I'm not dying I will feel so low with myself again and I really don't want to waste there time 😭😭 I'm a mess !! Also I can't recall ever having this pain in all my life I have no sneezing ect to suggest a cold either 😩
