Re: Pre-E warning signs?

Could be normal.. but could be getting towards pre-e. I really can't say, but I would go to your midwife and be tested. Ask for the 12-hour urine screen, since the protein dip doesn't always detect it. Right now you do sound normal though, high blood pressure doesn't always develop into preeclampsia. Definitely eat your protein, drink lots of water, rest, and consider leaving your wedding ring off for now. You wouldn't want it to get stuck if you swell any more (which is normal). Feet and ankles are really normal, they usually get more concerned when the swelling is up to your knees or in your hands and face. You are most likely fine though so try not to worry
