First she has to be booked in a high risk pregnancy unit

welcome to healthcaremagic
from the features the most probable cause of all the symptoms may be due to pregnancy complications and may be besides anaemia and gestational diabetes she is also having pre ecclaptic toxaemia of pregnancy
you should not take any risk keeping your daughter at home
she needs indoor treatment till she is free of all the problems
teen age pregnancy is always a serious condition and your daughter is already in high risk group
talk to your doctor and get her admitted in hospital for best prospect
