The nurse at my ob's office says that based on my symptoms and the fact that my mother had it when she was pregnant with me, I may have the beginning signs of pre-eclampsia. I'm 32 weeks right now, so luckily it's coming near the end instead of when it would be way too early to deliver the baby if necessary. I'm really nervous about it but the nurse said since it's so early into it right now and there's a snowstorm under way that I can probably wait to come in until my checkup next Tuesday, unless anything gets worse or I develop any more symptoms. She said it definitely sounds like that's what it is though. Does anyone here have this? If so, how did the diagnosis go? Did they put you on bedrest?
