Did she??? (Debra Messing) I've always suspected because there had been reports that she ended up on bedrest and then delivered 4 weeks early, complications, etc... but, I never heard pe mentioned. Geez, if I was famous I'd get up on my soapbox and start talking about it...

Ah yes, Julie, but as you so rightly point out.... you need to be both famous and a zealot. Lots of women don't ever take their experience of pre-eclampsia as seriously as we have. Maybe it's because it didn't cost them what it did you, maybe because they have different priorities, and equally worthy ones at that. I'd love to see celebrities embrace the cause, but only because they wanted to got that route. My fantasy would be someone who could raise our profile actively seek us out. Wouldn't that be a trip??!!

Did you see pictures of her? She was SOOOO swollen... scary!!

I agree, Catherine- that would ROCK! Maybe we can try writing her a letter as well...

There is soo many with risk factors, that sometimes I really wonder. Particularly with these people:

Jenna Jameson
Lisa Marie Presley
Jennifer Lopez
Angelina Jolie- It is rumored she had GD though.

Good for them if not, but it wouldn't surprise me if they did and decided not to share.
