Hello, thank you for contacting us regarding your issue.

We understand you’re experiencing bubbly urine and swelling of your hand in the morning for about a week. We will try to help you out.

Pre-eclampsia is a hypertensive disorder in pregnancy and is characterised by high blood pressure and protein in urine. Since you do not have a high blood pressure, that makes it unlikely that you have preeclampsia. However, high blood pressure often goes unnoticed so it is best if you check with a doctor.

The symptoms you’re facing might be a part of normal physiological changes that takes place during pregnancy. However, it is also possible that it might be due to an underlying medical issue such as kidney disease or a heart problem.

We advise you to consult a doctor regarding the symptoms you’re experiencing to rule out any possible medical illness that might be causing your problem.
