Symptoms of Preeclampsia

By Nabta Team

This is an abnormal condition usually seen after your fifth month of pregnancy where your blood pressure is higher than usual and in some cases women have protein in their urine. When it is mild women may have no symptoms, but severe preeclampsia could lead to seizures in women and can harm both the mother as well the fetus. While it is increasing in severity, some symptoms to look out for are headaches, vomiting, feeling breathless, abdominal pain, and blurry vision. If you have been diagnosed with increased blood pressure during your pregnancy, as soon as you experience these early symptoms, you must get checked out by a doctor to ensure everything is well
