Well the signs and symptoms page says "more than 2 pounds in a week" http://www.preeclampsia.org/health-info ... d-symptoms

For me personally though, I can fluctuate a pound or two, especially if I eat a lot of salt (salt sensitive hypertensive here).

Though when I gained more than 5 pounds in a day, for me personally that was a sign of preeclampsia.

Just a thought, but is there any way you could go in to your docs and get a pressure check and protein dip to maybe help put your mind at ease? During my second pregnancy I was super paranoid (I mean hyper vigilant!) so my OB would let me come in whenever I wanted to get a urine dip and BP check. Probably since I only had to see the medical assistant for that!

I hope this helps, good luck!

Things seem ok (?) My weight appeared to go back down again (messed up scale maybe?) and my bp is still good..so I'm plugging along. :)
Our first son was born and passed in Feb of 2010. Born at 29 weeks due to HELLP and passed due to NEC. We miss him every day. :~(

Our second son was born at 39 weeks gestation in Nov of 2011. No HELLP or pre-e! Took LDA starting at week 12 and went off of it at week 38!

When I was in the hospital with HELLP, I had a lot of bleeding from my nose. Have you had a platelet count done? Stuffy noses are very common in pregnancies...not sure about bloody noses, though.
