Take a deep breath and relax. We got a lil one to think about. The migraines you have is a rare disease, and you should wear some medical identfication just in case you can't say want you want. Not that it is going to happen. Just a precaution.
For your issue. I think they are trying to avoid preeclampsia. Because of your migraines, you are high risk. Usually woman devolope preeclampsia and severe naseau/vomiting that have these kind of migraines whilst pregnant. However, it is in my proffessional medical opinion Anyone, Including You, may seek a second opinion.
Bed rest might be good in your case, but please note, I am not a doctor (not enough school yet). Ask them questions like: Why am I high risk? How can I lower my risk of being such high risk? What complications am I at risk for? How can I minimize the chance of getting these complications? How many people have you personally delivered? How many of those had my medical background of dx's? What are other options for me? Do I have to deliver at 37 weeks?
If they give you the run around--ask for another doctor. It ticks them off, but they know you know your rights as a patient. And they usually straighten up. If you have any other questions feel free to ask, we are all here for you.
