I agree with the others! It's not going to hurt to call and tell the doc what's going on. And remember how quickly things can change with this disease!! Praying for you!!!

I agree with calling your OB and seeing what he/she wants you to do. Swelling in and of itself isn't all that alarming, but combined with all of your other symptoms and your weight gain it is worth a call.

Take care and let us know how you are doing.

You're 35 weeks right? That's the good news I guess. I wouldn't wait until tomorrow - can you call the doctor and see what they think? The swelling couldbe related to kidney functions so it could be a problem even if your bp isn't too high yet. Good luck - but even if you have to have the baby tonight you've really gone quite far!

Starting to swell

I was put on bedrest about 3 weeks (at 32+2), due to spikey pressures, blurred vision, headaches, vomiting, 2+ protein on dip and a sudden weight gain. Since then, my pressures have been very labile, I've still been vomiting and I have still had headaches, but the weight fell off right away and I haven't had over 300 yet on a 24-hour.

Well yesterday when I woke up I had gained 2 pounds and then last night I
noticed that my hands looked swollen, this morning I woke up and my fingers are still swollen and I have gained an additional 4 pounds (total of 6 in 2 days), up until this point I have only gained 15 pounds total.

I have an appt tomorrow, but my pressures have still been under 140/90, so I don't know what they will do.
