Quoting [Leon&Jaylon):" I hope everything is okay! That is scary. Have you told your OB about the swelling"

Quoting Skye Robinson:" I'm 28 weeks pregnant and am on blood pressure medication. I had pre-eclampsia with my first son. My ... [snip!] ... and feet are somewhat swollen. This scares me. Sorry for going on and on, just wanted to write about what's going on with me."I wish my doc was a little more concerned. My blood pressures lately have been good, but I started the pregnancy with elevated blood pressure and have had migraines very similar to the ones you described on a regular basis starting at about week 28. I asked my doc and he just shrugged it off and said that if the pains got worse to let him know and they'd put me on something for the pain...ugh. I guess you can take it one of two ways- some women just get more migraines when they're pregnant and it could be totally unrelated to Pre-E or just make sure you talk to your doc about it and be glad that they are concerned enough to be watching you. Good luck! I hope things get better.

I know that this is my first baby with myhusband and i read that if you never had it b4 but it being your 1st pg with a different person that your at risk of gettin it.

Discuss it with your doctor, maybe he can come up with a solution "i had read it on some medical site about the diff partner part, and no you definetly dont need a heart attack, I am hoping this time not to have the congestive heart failure and relapse of the cardiomyopathy. im gonna talk to my dr when i go the 16th
