Has anyone ever had pre eclampsia?

I was just wondering if there were moms on here that have ever pre eclampsia? And if you did were you given magnesium sulfate? If you were given that I was wondering what it felt like when you were on it?
I was put on it, and it stung really good bad going in. Then after a while my head got all foggy and i couldn't get out of bed. I was very tired and it was just exhausting doing anything. I just felt like a slug. I had to be on it for 24 hours after I had him I was not able to get off medication, eat or get out of bed.

Was just curious if anyone had same type of experience.

You felt your csection?? Like them cutting into you?


Quoting Gemini_MomOfTwo:

Same here. I had my ds at 33weeks for the same thing and I felt every minute of the csection. Im hoping this wont happen with my daughter, so far everything is ok




Quoting ckmom2013:

I had it twice...first time I had to deliver at 34 weeks after having high blood pressure for days. The second time I was having contractions at 36 weeks went to er n I was told I had pre eclampsia again and I delivered within hours. I am able to feel csections so I was put to sleep...I have no clue what they gave me along with magnesium but I was itching every 5 minutes for 2 days. I was so drugged up that I had to keep my baby in the nursery a lot.
