Keep in mind I am NOT the norm but I was diagnosed at 24 weeks and made it on strict bedrest to 38 weeks. My daughter does have cerebral palsy from sustained reduced blood flow. But...she is alive and well and such a joy. I hope your daughter is able to hang on awhile. Keep us posted!

I'm so sorry your daughter is going through this. I hope she can make it a while longer before delivery. It's probably very unlikely that she will make it to term, but every day from here on out gives the baby a better chance.

There is some good information here:

Welcome to the forums, though I'm sorry it's under these circumstances. I'm glad you've found us.

Severe PE is managed on a day-to-day basis. The average time from diagnosis of PE to delivery is two weeks; this includes women who get very sick and must be delivered within hours of diagnosis and women who limp along with very mild cases for months. But anyone who has been hospitalized already with severe PE is likely to deliver within days.

I assume she's being seen by a maternal-fetal medicine specialist and that they have explained that the problem in this syndrome is usually that the placenta is not implanted well into the uterus and is having trouble supplying blood to the baby. What has her MFM said about management?

Please keep us posted as you are able -- all of us will be very worried about your daughter and your grandbaby.
