I've done some research about preeclampsia since yesterday as all I really knew about it was that it involved high blood pressure. Apparently early onset (prior to 32/34 weeks depending on which guideline) is much worse and also the high BP is not the actual problem it's the symptom of a problem with the placenta. So even if BP gets under control the placenta problem remains which is why it's not good for baby. I have another check up this week so will ask more questions now I have more info. I do have faith in my ob but I guess to some extent it's out of our hands.
Here's hoping we all have a safe few weeks ahead til our little babies join us healthy and happy.
