Has anyone here ever had preeclampsia? Sorry, but this is quite a long one! I went to see the midwife on Tuesday and they did a urine test and it tested positive. She also tested my BP and that was 129/79 which is normal. (First test was 126/84 8 mths ago) I also went for a scan on Thursday and the midwife told me to go to the antenatal day care centre while I was there and give them another sample and if it still tested positive they would send it away for tests. It was still positive so they sent it off and now I'm waiting for the results. Anyway, over the weekend I've had swollen feet and ankles and couldn't get my shoes on (only my feet, not hands or face). It has been very hot weather though. Last night I had a bad headache and woke up in the night with a headache. I've been seeing white spots for a couple of weeks as well. When I asked both midwifes waht the protein in urine meant, they both kind of fobbed me off, saying "Oh it could be any number of things". My community midwife said it could mean the baby was coming, but the hospital one said it could mean I have an infection, but I felt fobbed off like they didn't want to worry me. Given that my BP was normal, does it sound like there is any danger of preeclampsia? I feel like I have all the symptoms (feet have gone down today a bit), swollen feet, headaches, white spots, protein in urine, but no high BP. Does the BP have to be high for it to be preeclampsia? If not, then has anyone else had protein in the urine and what was the outcome?
