Hey ladies,I was just wondering if any of you other mommies or mommies-to-be have experienced similar symptoms. First of all, I'm 5'5" and have always been at a healthy, average weight. For the last two weeks, I've been retaining water and gaining weight drastically. I called my doctor today and they made me come in right away. In the last two days I've gained 8 pounds, w/ 20lbs total pregnancy. The doctor thinks it's all water weight and they're making me come in every week to monitor it. My face was even all swollen and puffy this morning. Also, my blood pressure was kinda high when it's always been normal. Do these sound like symptoms of preeclampsia? Has anyone else retained water drastically even while eating a healthy diet and staying hydrated? I simply don't know what to do differently, and I'm scared to keep gaining. I don't wanna end up at 1000 pounds before I have this baby, lol,even if it is mostly water weight.
