I'm very glad to have discovered this website and forum, as I was recently diagnosed with eclampsia. I delivered twins on April 9th, (via c-section at 37 weeks and 4 days) and had a very healthy pregnancy. No history of high blood pressure - it was actually on the low side during most of the pregnancy. We had been home from the hospital 4 days when I started to have problems - headache, vision problems, swelling etc. I didn't know very much of the condition so I didn't recongize the symptoms. My husband ended up having to call the ambulance for me when I passed out at home, and I had a seizure in the hospital. I ended up staying in the hospital for 4 days and am very lucky by all accounts. The nurses and doctors were all amazing. I'm now back home, enjoying my time with with my twins baby boys, my 2 1/2 year old son, and my husband. This has been a life changing experience indeed.
