greetings. I found out I was had preeclampsia s/s at 33 weeks gestation with my second child. I had been swelling but not in a drastic way. I went to the doctor on a Monday morning for my normal appointment, I had actually had the best night of sleep in a long time. So when the doctor came in to tell me he was sending me to the hospital due to high blood pressure and increased protein in my urine I was SHOCKED! With two steriod shots, and being induced on Thursday the 21st of April I had a healthy baby boy. 33 weeks and 4 days. From Monday to Thursday I did get increasingly ill, so eventually I would have gotten worse, my appointment just landed on the perfect day to catch the sickness coming on. I am actually pregnant again 15 months later, and I'm feeling great. Believing I won't have to deal with that again. So basically its all good when they find it soon enough. Thank God for advanced medical technology. Good Luck!

  • I have to ask...did you feel your symptoms coming on? I am now at 32 weeks and have been having high bp readings at my last two appointments. I would rather not go on bes rest, but I guess that is the next step.Also, how was the baby's lungs when you delivered? They are worried about lung maturity for this little one.
