  • Your doctor should have given you very specific instructions on how to take care of yourself and your baby. you need to try to relax, and follow the doctor's instructions.

    Good luck to you and your family

  • Don't stress out to much. Depending on how your bp is and the amount of protein in your urine it sounds like you have preeclampsia. There is different stages of it that can make it worse or not to bad but just relax. Its better for you to drink more watter then usual and try not to get to active. Your doctor should have told you exactly how to take care of yourself and the baby like rkoloms said just be careful and if you have ANY questions then call your doctor. I wouldn't take any chances.

  • Just relax and try not to do to much. I don't want to scare you but it could be Toxemia. The doctor will do tests if it continues. I had it and they had me on bed rest. My daughter is fine. If you have any swelling in your hands, feet, or face call your doctor. Good Luck and relax. If you want to talk you can message me. Happy Mothers Day! =D
