I went to the doc yesterday and my blood pressure was up a bit. I have protein in my urine and my legs and ankles are always swollen. I work on my feet every day for 6-9 hours a day and then come home to chase around my daughters. The docs are worried that I'm showing early signs of preeclampsia at 15 weeks. I had this condition with my oldest daughter almost 9 years ago and was put on bed rest but we cant afford for me to go on bed rest because my hubby just got laid-off. Any one have any tips for bringing down my blood pressure and the swelling? I dont wanna freak out about this because I know it will only make the condition with my blood pressure worse but I dont know what to do ......PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!
