I made fun of my swollen feet at @cynthiabailey10 party. Next day my tests came back for possible preeclampsia… I gained 17 lbs in ONE week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine. This is NOT normal! I took more tests. Baby is fine but if they come back higher #babydaly will have to come same day. Staying positive. To my pregnant sisters please go to your visits and tell the doctor of any drastic changes. Thank God I have great doctors.🙏🏾 #babydaly #highrisk #love #family #miraclebaby #kenyamoore #babybump #pregnantover40
What happened? According to Kenya, who is just a month away from delivery, said after attending her friend, Cynthia Bailey’s party her feet became extremely swollen.
The next day after test came back for “possible pre-eclampsia,” the reality star shared she, “gained 17 lbs in ONE week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in [her] urine.”
Clearly nervous, the first time expectant mom confessed, “This is NOT normal!”
After taking more tests, Kenya shared the good news that her, “baby is fine but if they come back higher #babydaly will have to come [the] same day.”
“Staying positive,” Kenya cautions her pregnant sisters to, “please go to your visits and tell the doctor of any drastic changes.”
In her own words, “thank God I have great doctors.”
We are sending prayers to Kenya, her husband, and their growing baby! Bless up!
