On the Day after Christmas I went to the emergency due to leg and feet swelling. My weight went from 155 in late Sept. to 175 on that day. My hands were stiff too. Dr. told me I had arthitis.
Blood work showed I had a infection. Had a fever. My blood pressure was high too.
I was diagonsed with a skin infection. Sent home with meds. About three weeks later found out I was @20 weeks pregnant. Lost baby next week. I am now wondering if i had toxemia. OB Dr. will not give me a answer. I was told I never could never conceive so being pregnant never crossed my mind. I do not have a normal period. Now that baby is gone weight is at 150. Hands are fine and blood pressure is now back down too.
