Yeah mine turned out to be Bells Palsy. I will discuss with my OB in the morning what we are going to do about it. The on call Dr didn't feel comfortable putting me on treatment without my Drs approval as the most common treatment for Bells palsy is steroids and antibiotics which neither are safe during pregnancy. I think I may discuss possible induction with my Dr tommorow because aside from the facial paralysis its causing me to have pretty nasty migraines and pain in my neck and ear on that side as well as eye pain from not being able to blink. And sometimes when Bells palsy occurs in the last few weeks of pregnancy its caused by swelling and goes away after delivery.
