My best friend is due in 3 weeks but has been in hospital almost every day this week due to high bp and signs of preeclampsia plus high levels of something or other in her liver - can anyone give me any information on this - mainly preeclampsia? She is meant to have her baby shower on sunday but I have a feeling she may have been induced by then!

I don't know much about it Rod but my Mum had it with my brother and i know she had to be induced because of it. It sounds like the hospital is taking good care of her but you might be right about the baby shower being cancelled/postponed!!

The only cure for pre eclampsia is delivery of the baby so it kind of depends how high her bp is. If she is 37 weeks that is full term so they may induce. The liver issue might be obstetric colestasis which my friend had.

Yea they have told her if she deterioriates they will induce her. She seems fairly ok about it all, but keep worrying about all the stuff she still has to do! bless her.

Just spoken to her, her AST Levels (Liver) shouldnt be over 39, but on Friday were 40 and yesterday 44, so they're seieng what they are today and then deciding what to do.
I have this feeling her baby is coming VERY soon! Vibes please guys! xx

That's what I had the first time but obviously very severe and early onset. It's good she's being monitored daily as things can go rapidly downhill. As long as they're watching we and baby it should all be fine, she's at a good gestation. Let us know how she gets on x

Will do thanks Missus S. They've now said they think she has something wrong with her liver, her BP isnt scarly high anymore which is good. She has to have a scan tomorrow or monday for the liver thing and then they will decide what to do. x
