Kanye Moore’s doctor may be forced to induce labor to save her life after she was diagnosed with early signs and symptoms of
The 47-year-old reality star took to her Instagram blog to share her health news with her followers.
"I made fun of my swollen feet at @cynthiabailey10 party. Next day my tests came back for possible preeclampsia," Moore wrote in the caption of a photo of her swollen feet.
"I gained 17 [pounds] in ONE week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine. This is NOT normal!
I took more tests. Baby is fine but if they come back higher #babydaly will have to come same day."
This is the second time Moore showed concern for her health since going public with her high-risk pregnancy.
In September, Moore shared an image of her growing baby bump on Instagram.com. In the comments of another photo, Moore wrote “That baby is all the way out there now. “@Kandi still have a few months to go and I weigh 200 lbs!!!”
Moore’s fans expressed concern for her, since most of her weight gain was water.
Pregnant women retain water, especially in the late 2nd or early 3rd trimester. Excessive weight (water) gain in the torso and arms and legs could be linked to preeclampsia.
Preeclampsia is a potentially deadly complication that occurs after the 20th week of pregnancy or in the days or weeks after childbirth. The condition is associated with high blood pressure, protein in the urine and weight gain.
There is no cure for preeclampsia, but doctors may induce early labor or terminate the pregnancy to save the mother’s life.
This is why doctors encourage middle-aged women to avoid getting pregnant after age 35.
The former Real housewives of Atlanta star is expecting her first child with husband, restauranteur Marc Daly.
