Hi my name is Mayela Solitaire, I am 20 years old and had a bad case of Preeclamsia on my first and only pregnancy! i started to gain weight very rapidly after my 30th week later i found out i was spilling a lot of protein, the first time i got my urine checked i had 150mg that became 500 in a couple of days, i was put in the hospital for 2 weeks, because i started to get horrible headaches and my blood pressure was 200/110 the day i delivered my son i was only 32 weeks and if i would of waited any longer we could of died. Sebastian was born on March 2, 2005 and he weighted only 2lbs 13oz and he was breathing on his own his nick name was the "miracle baby" because he was such a good fighter he never gave up! he stayed in the NICU for 5 weeks and and now he weights 15 lbs and noone can tell he was premature i was very fortunate to overcome this but horrified to have a 2nd child.
