Hey ladies, don’t mean to worry you guys but have you ever heard of a condition found in pregnancy called Pre-eclampsia? Around 1000 ladies per year are affceted by it and sadly around 10 babies a year die due to it.
Now before you totally freak out things can be done to help, and if you are found to have pre-eclampsia things can and will be done to help you, it’s just super important you are aware of the symptoms.
In early pregancy there really aren’t too many symptoms, it’s when you get into the later stages of pregnancy the symptoms can become more obvious. Here are some of the later symptoms:
Blurred Vison or nausea
shortness of breath
Now alot of ladies get these symptoms without having pre-eclampsia, i was confused the whole time i was pregnant!! But if there is anything you are ever worried about during your pregnancy please don’t be scared of contacting your midwife or Doctor, it really could be so important.
Check out the BBC health page here it’s fantastic and really imformative.
