Media reports have said thatKim Kardashian became “sick” late in pregnancy, and that she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital for “complications,” where she delivered her daughter the next day, reportedly a few weeks early.

Now People magazine (viaThe Daily News) is reporting that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star may delivered prematurely because she suffered from preeclampsia, a condition that can be life-threatening to mom and baby. Symptoms include hypertension, rapid weight gain, headaches, and swelling, especially in your hands and face. Usually delivering the baby is the only cure.

Anyone here deal with preeclampsia during pregnancy?
