Joining the thread.
I am now past the stage of when I developed pre-e in my first pregnancy.
I had pregnancy induced hypertension and at 34 weeks developed into pre-e. Long story short, I was induced but had a c-section at 35 weeks.
I am 35.5 weeks now, and the last couple of days, I've noticed I swell at random times.
My blood pressure has been normal [about 118/70] everytime it's taken, although last time the lower number was 6 points higher than normal, but I've had it do that before in this pregnancy. I have not been able to take my blood pressure during swelling episodes.
As I said I swell at random times, I do get hot but it doesn't feel like my blood pressure. I do whatever is opposite of what I'm doing at the time to try to make it go down. I drink more water, and eat protein, and just wait it out. It seems to go down at random times too.
I can't think of any reason why I'd suddenly start swelling, often for no reason. I did notice that it happens more at night.
I also notice that during these swelling episodes, I pee very little, but as soon as the swelling is gone, I pee a lot and then go back to normal.
I'll admit, I'm a bit worried about developing pre-e again, so I just want to be safe.
