Definition By Mayo Clinic staff Preeclampsia is a condition of pregnancy marked by high blood pressure and excess protein in your urine after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Preeclampsia often causes only modest increases in blood pressure. Left untreated, however, preeclampsia can lead to serious â€” even fatal â€” complications for both you and your baby. If you have preeclampsia, the only cure is delivery of your baby. If you’re diagnosed with preeclampsia too early in your pregnancy for delivery to be an option, you and your doctor need to allow your baby more time to mature, without putting you or your baby at risk of serious complications.The babies will be at 33 weeks in 5 days.
