Hello ladies I am new to this website and I see it is helpful and I am truly sorry to everyone that has lost someone due to this unknown sickness. I has a healthy and happy pregnancy til my 7 month everything was perfect I was very active drank 64 ounces of water a day maintained myself from eating alot of salt and boom out of nowhere I started retaining water in my legs and my right arm but funny thing is my left arm never swelled and also has protein in my urine. I had an appt at my clinic and my blood pressure was 138 and that is a beggining symptom of having preeclampsia so I got really scared becuz I was retaining alot of water. I had an appt the next week and my blood pressure was even higher and I started freaking out and my hand I couldn't feel it anymore due to my high blood pressure and I was admitted to the hospital. I was diagnosed with minor preeclampsia. I was discharged that day because they stabilized my blood pressure. The next day I woke up to a severe headache and my blood pressure reached the sky to 186 and my preeclampsia got severe and I was 34 weeks pregnant and my labor was induced. My baby boy is still in the hospital being monitored but he's doing great hopefully by Friday he's able to come home with me. I am having symptoms like feeling light headed and I am always feeling exhausted and very out of breathe does any one else have these problems? Is there anything I can do to feel more energized? I am so scared to think this will be something I have to live with forever I feel depressed just thinking about it. Please if anyone has any comments don't hesitate to respond please I appreciate every one that will take their precious time into replying
