Pre eclampsia is to do with high blood pressure and protine in the urine not swollen legs

Is that deadly?

I Googled it. It said if it were untreated it could. But it's a common thing in pregnant women. What has your doctor suggested to control it?  Also Try not to stress yourself out about it so much bc that isn't good for the blood pressure either. Everything will be okay

I had preclamsia to much protine in the urine at 39 weeks and as soon they found out i had to much protine in the urina they induced me for labor because it can harm the baby.

I had pre-eclampsia and it was cause of high blood pressure and protein in my urine I also swelled up on my hands and face. Feet also but that Is common in regular pregnancies. I was hospitalized because it can cause still birth or you can get seizures. As long as you rest and take medication you should be fine but ur still considered high risk
