I just got put on a modified type bed rest ( laying on my left side and keeping feet elevated as much as I can ) to see if it helps. I gained 6 pounds in 24 hours :(

They never said, this was done over the phone. I go back right on 20 weeks ( Isnt that when they can find out?) I do not know nothing about pre eclampsia.

Extreme swelling is a symptom of pre eclampsia. Not to freak you out, hon:) can you check your blood pressure at the grocery store?
