Hi dear mummies to be,
Some info on Preeclampsia
- is a serious disorder characterized by high blood pressure and protein in your urine
- most often shows up after 37 weeks, but it can happen earlier so it's important to be aware of the warning signs of this condition.
- let your gynae know if you have swelling in your face or puffiness around your eyes, more than slight swelling of your hands, excessive or sudden swelling of your feet or ankles, or rapid weight gain (more than 4 pounds in a week).
With more severe preeclampsia, you may experience other symptoms.
- let your gynae know know immediately if you have a severe or persistent headache, vision changes (including double or blurred vision, seeing spots or flashing lights, sensitivity to light, or temporary loss of vision), intense pain or tenderness in your upper abdomen, or vomiting.
Take care everyone...may all have a healthy and smooth good pregnancy !
