38 weeks pregnant with multiple symptoms

I am 38 weeks pregnant , I am 23 years old, 225 pounds. i have been having a constant sharp pain in my lower abdomen for a couple of days. I also am dizzy and nauseous. My feet and hands have swelled so bad they itch really bad. I also had head aches . My right hand twitches like it does when i am about to have a seizure. I feel really bad. I have been tested for preclampsia (negative) My doctor says its probably just the baby on my nerve but i think i need a second opinion

Hi
Welcome to health care magic
all these are pregnancy related problem ,but you must rule out pre eclampsia.out of three two signs are seen in pre eclampsia. 1Raised BP,
2.swelling of leg or feet.
3 albumin in the urine.
If you still don`t get relief or your condition worsen ,you can go for early delivery ,as your baby has fully grown. Having 2nd opinion is always good ,if not confusing.

I am 39 years old and female. I have been having problems with stomach pains, swelling of the abdomen and look about 9 months pregnant, I have also been throwing up green colored stuff on and off for awhile. I have acid reflux and I take pepcid, prilosec, and recently placed on reglan. I am scheduled for an endoscopy the 4th, but I am concerned as I just found out my liver enzymes are elevated to 50. I realize thats not very high, but what concerns me is that in 2000 when I had my son two months early by c-section I had pre-eclampsia and was told I could develop liver damage down the road and I have had my liver enzymes checked yearly since then and have never been elevated until now, I am really worried as to what this could be. I also wanted to start the HCG drops for weight loss, but not sure if that is wise at this time. Oh and my doctor won't order any scans of my gallbladder or liver because they did a cat scan on gallbladder back in May.
