I had preeclampsia.I let my doc.know something feels weird.I feel bigger than I should she tolled me oh ur just pregnant.my duedate came and my doc.wanted me to go another week.with my doc.carelessness.nobody found out I had it until I was in labor.my blood pressure was sky high and my babus was dropping.my husband wanted to know who they were worried most about.the doc.explained me because they could save the baby but not me.my first baby girl was born emergency section and weight only 5-11lbs.within 3weeks she was at normal size if not bigger.I suggest ask ask ask as many questions.make them make u feel comfortable.the second time around and a different hospital. My doc.heard everything especially me being nervous about having preeclampsia.but they made me absolutely comfortable answered all my questions and I had a perfect procedure.my second weight 8-9lbs.what a difference.but I am truly blessed now.they are now 4and 17months.and doing great and healthy.hope that helps a lil
