  • If your doctor told you to relax, being that he/she is the one with the medical degree and your parents AREN'T...

    ...don't you think that's what you should be doing?

  • It is so important that you relax. My sister and I both had pre-eclampsia/toximia. Its when your body retains water. You swell quite a bit. Your doctor might think you have signs of it but not sure if you have it or not. It is dangerous for you. You need to relax or it could cause complications for you. The only way to get rid of PE or T is to have the baby.
