Signs and symptoms

There are several signs and symptoms of preeclampsia to be on the lookout for. Of course, the main symptoms are marked by high blood pressure and protein in the urine. There are other symptoms and signs too to be on the lookout for such as rapid weight gain or a rapid increase in bodily fluid, abdominal pain and severe headaches. Dizziness, vomiting and nausea are also symptoms of Preeclampsia, along with a change in reflexes and no urine output. Be on the lookout for any of these signs or symptoms, since they also can be signs of Preeclampsia.

More serious signs

There are some symptoms of Preeclampsia that are more serious than others, and require that you seek medical attention right away. Some of the more serious symptoms are blurry vision or flashing lights or really sudden weight gain over a period of one to two days. Also, if you notice sudden and severe swelling in your hands, eyes or face, you should seek medical attention immediately to make sure that you are keeping you and your baby safe. In addition if your blood pressure is higher than 140/90, it is important to see your doctor right away.

Regular doctor’s check ups

Having regular doctor’s visits and checkups are very important as well, since in some women, Preeclampsia shows no symptoms. That is why making sure you have regular prenatal care is very important. Preeclampsia prevents the placenta from functioning properly and getting enough blood, so it is very important to make sure that you keep an eye on any symptoms so that you don’t miss anything. If left untreated, preeclampsia can cause stroke, seizure, heart failure, blindness or even death. As you can see, preeclampsia and eclampsia are nothing to mess around with and it is important to watch out for them during pregnancy.
