Question: Have there been any links made between morning sickness and PE?
I have had two Severe PE pregnancies. Both of witch I have had very severe morning sickness. My Pre preg weight was 103 for my first preg. By five months I had lost 21 pounds and was down to 82 pounds. The all day sickness stopped about 24 weeks. I then was able to gain all the weight back and I went in to the hospital at 33 weeks weighing 111. 3 Ã‚Â½ days later I had been induced and was weighed in at 144, and didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t include the three pounds of baby and everything else that comes out at that time.
My second pregnancy I lost about 10 pds, and went in to the hospital at 23 weeks at my pre preg weight. I again started swelling really bad. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know my final weight for this preg, but the first day in the hospital I gained 9 pounds overnight.
Does having morning sickness effect PE at all, or could it contribute to it? Just the stress of the morning sickness? Could my yo yo weight gain and losses effected the PE, or maybe make it worse.
PS I was on Zofran, and reglan for both preg, but I usually couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t keep either one down long enough to work, When they did stay down, I really didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get any relief anyway.
