@Sneakers41 - Good for you. I know that when my sister was pregnant she developed preeclampsia which is pregnancy induced hypertension. It is really a dangerous condition and her entire body began retaining fluid and she had to be hospitalized.
She even had to have an emergency C section. It was really scary. She also said that she felt dizzy and nauseous a lot.
This high blood pressure and pregnancy combination can be really deadly and if it is not treated properly as it could lead to a coma. Thank goodness that my sister was okay.
This was about twenty years ago, now when pregnant women are diagnosed with this condition they are usually given bed rest and monitored really closely throughout their pregnancy.
