Pre-eclampsia ?'s: Usually by "33 wks of pregnancy" signs of pre-eclampsia are very evident. A trace of protein in the urine is not a concern. Blood pressure elevation above "110/68" , headaches, swelling in your extremities, are all signs of possible pre-eclampsia. Your OB physician should be seeing you at least weekly if these symptoms occur.
