I go to a few message boards, so I have been posting alot about preeclampsia, it is SHOCKING to see how many women really don't know about the signs!! What can we do to raise awareness??? I'm selling pregnancy and infant loss ribbons on ebay and will be donating the profits once a month, but I feel like I need to do more!
Are there colors for awareness of preeclampsia (like pink for breast cance, blue and pink for infant and pregnancy loss) I could make bracelets and sell them, or key chains. It is just so scary that more then likly the only reason I am here is because I relized that my horrible swelling and decreased urine out put was not normal and when I called my doc he had sense enough to tell me to go to L & D!
