I don't know if we have any here in our DDC, or maybe some BTDT mommies have had it before, or maybe you know someone who's had it...

What were your first signs and symptoms? What tests did your doctor order?

I had it with my first pregnancy only. I would never have known I had it except my BP was always sky high. Other than that I felt fine. I would have to do 24 hour urine analaysis every few weeks to check for protein.

I had it with my first. I had high blood pressure towards the end and gained a massive amount of weight and had major swelling between my 38th and 39th week. I was sent to be induced at my 39 week appointment when they found the protein in my urine and my blood pressure was sky high. But, was already dilated 5.5 and in labor when I arrived so, they just broke my water to speed things up.

I had it... sudden spike in BP at around 30 or so weeks. Then protein in my urine - (both with the urine test strips and 24 hr urine analysis).

I had major migraine headaches with auras and started swelling at 5 months with my first pregnancy. My blood pressure also went up real high. I was monitored, but they never really did anything. They did induce me so that they could monitor me just in case.

I had it with my first. I had been swelling really bad. My feet were so swollen that if you touched them it would be painful. My face started swelling along with my hands. I started swelling about two to three weeks before my Bp went up and I started having protein in my urine. The week of my 36 week appointment I had n/v and just didn't feel well. I went o my 36 week appointment and my Bp was elevated but I had 4+ protein in my urine. I was admitted to be monitored and to do 24 hour urine but my Bp went really high and I had really low amniotic fluid so I delivered that day.
