Pregnant, anaemic, vomiting, nausea, headache, fatigue. Pre-eclampsia?

I am approximately 36 weeks+3 days along in my pregnancy. This is my first pregnancy. I have not had any severe complications or problems until now. I am anemic, and i have had a lot of vomiting , nausea , headaches, and fatigue the entire time I have been pregnant though. Yesterday I because very dizzy, had hot flashes/sweats on and off, ringing in my ears, fatigue, fast heart rate , and even some blurred vision at times. This worried me, I still do not feel right, head hurts, dizzy, and foggy feeling. I have not had high blood pressure at any doc. appointment before, but I am worried these symptoms may be related to high blood pressure, which I have heard can cause pre-ecclaympsia and be dangerous for me and the baby. I am wondering what I should do, and what these symptoms could be??

OBGYN 's  Response
Full blood count and urine analysis have to be taken in order to diagnose possible anemia or HELLP syndrome (Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes, Low Platelet count) so biochemical analysis (bilirubin, liver enzymes, urea, etc.) has to be done as well. Then you should be also examined by ultrasound (fetus and liver, kidneys, pancreas). It is very important to go to your gynecologist and talk with him about all your complaints.
