How do I know if I have pre-eclampsia?
Many women with pre-eclampsia do not experience any symptoms. The condition is usually detected by a doctor during a routine pregnancy check-up, when they measure your blood pressure. If you have a blood pressure reading and your doctor suspects that you have pre-eclampsia, they may also test a sample of your urine to check for protein, which is another sign of pre-eclampsia.
