SO last week I was diagnosised with preeclampsia. I have been following my diet plans and my OB wants to see me weekly. Today I fainted in a dental office while promoting a cancer event I am running. It was SO scary. My BP was high (146/96) but not the highest its been. I see my OB tomorrow and she will decide on bed rest, meds or both. I am hoping to keep it under control until 36-37 weeks then I can deliver. Thats about 12 weeks. :/

That must have been so scary! What was your 24 hour protein level? Passing out is usually related to low instead of high pressure. I'm surprised with an official pre-e diagnosis you weren't put on at least modifed rest.

We were diagnosed at 29 weeks with our 2nd and made it all the way to 37, so it's totally possible! There are lots of bp meds that are safe during pregnancy that can keep bp regulated.

Good luck! The preeclampsia foundation has a wonderful website with lots of great info and support too.
