I am 31 (almost 32) weeks and I have been diagnosed with preeclampsia. I am on blood pressure medicine but today the doctor doubled the dosage because my blood pressure was still high even being on the previous medicine. They said the protein in my urine was increasing with each weekly visit. I have been on bedrest since the beginning of october and I am still on bedrest. The doctor said we will take it week by week but he can't be sure as to when he will have to take the baby we just have to wait and see. He was sure that I wouldn't make it to my due date of Jan. 7 and felt very strongly that at the rate I'm going I won't make it until Christmas. I had gained 5 pounds in one week due to retaining water. I gained 2 pounds overnight!!! I was shocked because I have barely even gained 10 pounds the whole pregnancy before today. I was just curious how far some of you made it having preeclampsia and I would love to hear how you and your babies made it. I have no idea what to expect and I am a little nervous about the whole situations. Thank you so much!!!!
