Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

Pre-eclampsia is a condition that occurs in pregnancy after 20weeks. This is diagnosed when your blood pressure is higher than 140/90mmHg and there re proteins in your urine. This needs management and close monitoring so that there should be limited complications to both the mother and unborn baby. It is always advised to talk to an OBGYN at this time.

I hope this addresses your query fully. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
