Reality star Kenya Moore is nearing the end of her miracle pregnancy journey, but it might be wrapping up a bit sooner than the Queen of Twirl initially expected. Fans were thrilled and shocked to learn that Kenya first got married on the DL and then announced she was pregnant! Because of Moore's age, her gestation is considered to be a high-risk pregnancy, but all things considered she has had a fairly smooth sailing experience. Aside from gaining a mess of unexpected weight, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has not experienced many pregnancy curveballs.
The mom-to-be recently snapped a picture of her swollen feet following an Atlanta event and let fans know that she was puffing up rapidly thanks to a case of preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is a possibly dangerous condition that pregnant women can develop. While it can happen to any expectant women, it is more likely to strike a woman who is having a geriatric pregnancy. Any woman over the age of 35 is considered to be "geriatric." Kenya is 47 years old, so she most definitely has increased risks for complications as she carries this baby. Preeclampsia is characterized by high blood pressure, and signs of distress or damage to other organs in the body, particularly the liver and the kidneys.
Moore captioned her photo by revealing her ailment to the public saying that she suddenly gained 17 pounds of fluid within one week, had protein in her urine and was suffering from high blood pressure levels. None of that is what a pregnant woman wants to her, especially considering that Moore is still a good month away from her due date. So does this mean that Baby Daly might be coming earlier than expected?
We will see. For now, the baby seems to be perfectly healthy, and Moore is staying confident and calm as she awaits tests results and consults her doctors in regards to her condition. Our fingers are crossed for you Kenya! Best of luck as you ride out these final challenging weeks of incubation. We're all pulling for you and Baby Daly.
