I had PE with dd. Was diagnosed around 26 weeks but was put on home rest. I had to have bp taken daily and urine check. My feet were HUGE!! From the swelling and elevating didn't help much. So I was just told to lay down with my feet up all day every day. I also had painful braxton hicks at the same time and was on medication for that.
At 37 weeks I noticed a slightly green discharge in my undies (sorry tmi) which turned out to be my hind waters had broken. Since I had the PE and braxton hicks and strep b. The doc decided I needed to be induced and have the injections to stop dd being exposed to strep b.
After birth it took along time for the excess fluid retention to leave my body. But I was lucky to escape not needing medication for blood pressure.
The best way to prevent PE is to keep active during pregnancy. So going for a walk or something gentle. But there isn't a 100% way to make sure you dont get it.
Good luck. GBH.
