Welcome to pregnancy. That is all normal. How's your blood pressure? If its normal then sorry, that's how ir is in the end, especially once you have already had a baby. It doesn't get easier each consecutive pregnancy honestly.

No no no no. I had to be tested at 36 weeks because I was getting dizzy, nauseous, headaches and my blood pressure shot up. While at the hospital I went into preterm labor a second time. You do not have to swell to have preeclampsia. Some women don't even have high blood pressure. And you need to know ASAP if you have it because it can cause seizures. Id be reporting that woman. She's obviously an idiot.

I got told that my blood pressure had to be high to have pre eclampsia but i have all the other symptoms of it, my hands and feet are swollen, and my face in the morning, i been getting dizzy and seeing spots, i even had protein in my urine at my appointment last week and they didnt seem concerned at all, and my blood pressure my whole life has ran 84/67 or real close to that and the last 2 weeks it went up to 120/87 and they dont seem to worry because its not high enough maybe i should get a second opionion
