No, but they did (hypothetically) prolong the need to deliver.
Same here. I was on bedrest the first time and all it did was hold off my delivery to 37 weeks but the PE progressed.

Same here. My understanding is that there is no way to prevent pre-e and the only real treatment for pre-e itself is delivery. They can treat the symptoms, like high bp temporarily, and hopefully buy the baby more time in the womb.

BP meds and Bedrest.....Still pre-e?

Hi Ladies,

If you were on BP meds for BP management and bedrest, did these interventions decrease/prolong/prevent pre-e from presenting itself?
