    I'm 37+2 and and have seen so many posters and warnings everywhere about pre-eclampsia. Also my friends mum lost a baby at 36 weeks due to this.

    But I think I'm getting signs of it... But not sure if I'm 'searching' for them.

    -I keep swelling (hands, forearms, feet, ankles and legs...but not my face)
    -Headaches
    -visions is not blurred as such but definitely not clear as it used to be.
    -on my last MW appt she told me I had protein in my urine but because it was the first time she wasn't concerned.

    Am I just being paranoid?
    I have an appt today at the hospital due to reduce movements- had scan already but this is like a follow up. Wondering if I should mention it? Is there a check they can do? My BP is usually fine when it's checked so I think that means I haven't got it? Lol sorry I'm majorly paranoid I know! :-/

    I'm pretty sure that's it the high bp that causes all the problems so if that's okay you should be alright but tell them at the hospital your other symptoms anyway, and they can advise xxx

    Definitely mention it at your appointment today if you're worried!! It could all be coincidence but better to make sure it's definitely not pre-eclampsia rather than worry about whether you're just being paranoid :) xx

    Thanks :)
    I have bright coloured dots often aswell as black. It's weird but apparently pregnancy messes with ur eyes anyway. (I think I read too many apps etc lol)
    How are they checking u for it? Is it BP normal? Xx
