Hi there,

I just wanted to say that I am right there with you. I lost my little Emily less than a year ago (May 25) after massive placenta abruption cause by preeclampsia. We were 34 weeks.

I'm pregnant again and nearly 25 weeks. No signs yet but I am a nervous wreck. I check my bp at least thee times a day and I am hyper aware of any little change.

Are you being followed by a high risk specialist? Swelling can be very normal in a pregnancy. Do you have any other symptoms?

Thinking of you.
Laura

Ps if you're on Facebook, you can add me and we can hopefully support each other through this difficult time. I'm Laura Rattray ( my pic is a wedding picture with my cute little dog)
