At this stage they'll most likely put you on bedrest, give you medication to try and help things and maybe put you on a specific diet to help some of the things (extra water/less salt to help the swelling). Good luck!

I've had it three times now. Bed rest, increase fluids, lower sodium intake, labetalol. So far, I have been fine with this baby. 29 weeks today. Good luck. Pm.if you need someone.

 I have pre-eclampsia, I was diagnoised at 22 weeks. I'm in the hospital and will stay here until the baby is born. I was able to stay at home for almost 4 weeks after I was diagnoised, but I went into pre-term labor and my pre-e became to severe to manage at home. I'm 26 weeks now and doing ok-ish. For most people, pre-e at this stage in pregnancy can be managed at home with diet changes, rest, lots of fluids and sodium restrictions. Good luck!

They'll do bed rest first. Good luck and hope for the best!

I delivered my son at 28 weeks due to severe preeclampsia/hellp syndrome.  He was 1lb 14oz.  If you have any questions feel free to ask.  They will probably give you steroids to develop the baby's lungs, if it gets bad enought they will admit you and put you on magnesium and IV blood pressure medication to try and control things for as long as possible.  There are a lot of "ands and ifs" though.  At 24 weeks though, I would honestly say to just prepare yourself because that is early onset and it can progress rapidly.  Keep us updated!

I ditto what the other ladies said but I'd also like to add you should ask your doctor about the Brewer Diet. It was created by a doctor for women to help prevent pre-eclampsia. I had signs of pre-e so I was induced but I was 40 weeks at the time.
