  • Go to WEBMD.com and look it up on there. If you do have that the doctor should have put you in the hospital I would think.

  • High blood pressure and protein in the urine. It can get very bad in some women causing blood pressure to skyrocket and causeing a stroke or worse in the mother or baby. Thats why they will deliver the baby if it gets too bad. There is nothing they can do but deliver to make the pressure go down.
