Hello. I have posted few messages so I guess that it makes me practically new here. . I am pregnant again, too and I do sympathise with all of you who are pregnant again. It is a feeling of mixed emotions and now all I am doing is just waiting to see the outcome of this pregnancy.

I am 27 years old and I have a 5 month old baby boy who was born at
35 1/2 weeks and I am 3 months pregnant with my second one. I really dont know what to think other than I hope that everything comes out to be much better than the first one.

I am not sure when PE symptoms begin (I beleive they begin around week 20), but I feel that mine began even before I found out I was pregnant (I was already about 4 weeks pregnant). One morning I woke up and noticed that I had difficulty putting on my wedding ring . . . and that is how it all began. I noticed my tummy never grew as much, but the rest of my body kept on growing because of EDEMA.

At about week 32 I went to a regular visit to the doctor and my BP was 140s/90s. I was told to have bed rest. Of course, I did not pay much attention to it, given that I did not know much about the condition. So, I decided to "take it easy" when in reality I was supposed to have COMPLETE bed rest.

About a week later, my urine showed high levels of protein and was told to do a 24 hr. urine. The results came out a bit higher and was told to do another one and the results came out 3 times higher. This all happen around week 34. Then on a regular visit when I went to turn in another 24 hr. urine (about a week and half later), my BP was 160s/90s and was told that I had to be admitted. I felt so guilty after all was done. My baby had to stay in NICU because of jaundice, but he was so small that I felt that I had done something wrong!

I wonder if I would have been able to make it to full term if I would have had complete bed rest whenever I was told to do so???

Does anyone know if bedrest would have helped?

Thank you for letting me vent a little. I just wanted to share a bit of my story.
