Kenya Moore is expected to deliver her baby before her due date. Earlier last week, the reality star shared on social media that she was diagnosed with preeclampia.

“Tests confirmed I do have preeclampsia today. I will have to deliver #babydaly early, but I’m being closely monitored to determine when.”


Prior, Moore posted a photo of her swollen feet, revealing that she gain 17lbs in one week and that she was suffering from “severe swelling, water retention, high blood pressure and excess protein in urine.”


For those of you, who are unfamiliar with the condition, preceeclampsia is a “pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to another organ system.” It usually begins after 20 weeks of pregnancy. If left untreated, it can lead to serious complications for both you and the baby.  Here are the signs to look for:

  1. Severe Headache
  2. Excess protein in urine
  3. Changes in vision including loss of vision
  4. Upper abdominal pain
  5. Nausea or vomiting
  6. Decreased urine output
  7. Decreased levels of platelets in your blood
  8. Impaired liver function
  9. Shortness of breath, caused by fluid in your lungs

If you are experiencing those signs, contact your care provider immediately or go to an emergency room.
