Article Body:
Someone out there had it out for pregnant girls. As if it isn't hard
enough on them already, there is a disorder known as Pre-Eclampsia.
Below, we will take a look at what this disorder is characterized by, how
it effects you, and how to tell if you have it.

Pre-Eclampsia is a pregnancy disorder involving convulsions. It generally
occurs after 20 weeks of pregnancy, and usually with the first child. And
as I said before... someone had it out for pregnant girls, becuase if no
signs or symptoms of pre-eclampsia occur, there is still possibilities of
eclampsia, which can happen before, during, or after the labour process.

There is only one true way to tell if you are carrying the eclampsia
disorder; Eclamptic convulsions. Eclamptic convulsions have a four stages
of gruelling pain:
Stage 1 - Unless the woman is aware and watching for this stage, it is
generally missed. In stage one the woman will simply roll her eyes, and
simultanieously, her hand a face muscles will slightly twitch.
Stage 2 - Shortly after stage one, the teeth will clench, the arms and
legs will go rigid, she can bite her tongue, and the face and hand
muscles that where twitching will now be clenching. In this stage, the
woman will also experiance loss of breath for approximatley 30 seconds.
Stage 3 - This is where it gets really bad. The muscles will begin to
jerk violently, while frothy and slightly bloody saliva will appear. 2
minutes of this until it stops, and then there is a coma, or occasionally
heart failure.
Stage 4 - If not dead, the woman will fall into a deep unconscious
state. This can persist for hours, or pass quickly.

Clearly this is not anything to be letting pass by. if any of these
symptoms occur, visit your doctor immediately. You could lose 2 lives if
you are not properly treated or monitored.
