Hey everyone.. Ok so I have (I hope) about a month left, give or take a week or two, of being pregnant however, the doctor has told me that I have the beginning of pre-eclampsia (pregnancy induced high blood pressure) not that my BP is really elevated it was 140/80 5 days ago but I have protiens in my urine and some pretty nasty swelling in my feet and legs that won’t go away.. Not only is this stressful enough for me and making me very concerned for my baby’s wellbeing but the Dr. has told me that if things continue this way for another week that she wants to induce me early so I’m stressing even more.. There’s just not the medicine or technology here in Kurdistan for premies, so I’m even more concerned. I know that she may very well be ok born a few weeks early but I’m not willing to take chances with my little one..
So can anyone advise me what would be good to have that helps lower BP AND something that might help my kidneys to stop spilling protiens?? I sure appreciate the help everyone!! Thanks a bunch K-Mom
