I am 30 weeks prego and was just told I have protein levels in my urine. I had this with my 1st child but did't find out till I was 36 weeks so only had it for a week. Now I have to go 7 weeks (I hope). I was hoping someone could give me some advise on what helped them with preclampsia if anything?? They are thinking bed rest is in my near future.Answer Question
A study conducted at Harvard University found that by eating at least 75 grams of protein per day, pregnant women could prevent diseases of pregnancy such as preeclampsia (metabolic toxemia of late pregnancy). During pregnancy a woman's blood volume increases as much as 40 to 60 percent, and in order to reach this necessary level and maintain it, a woman's body needs adequate protein, salt, calcium, potassium and water from her diet.
