Kenya Moore Confirms Preeclampsia Diagnosis, Will Give Birth Early [Photo]

The tests are in and Kenya Moore does, in fact, have preeclampsia.

According to a note posted by the former ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star she’ll have to deliver Baby Daly earlier than expected — although she didn’t specify when.

Earlier this week Kenya revealed that she gained 17 pounds in one week due to possible preeclampsia. She weighed 200 pounds in September.

According to Mayo Clinic, preeclampsia is a pregnancy complication “characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to another organ system, most often the liver and kidneys.”

It typically develops suddenly in women who previously had normal blood pressure after the 20-week pregnancy mark. Besides the sudden weight gain and swelling, symptoms may include severe headaches, shortness of breath, nausea, upper abdominal pain, blurred vision, impaired liver and kidney function and decreased urine output.

We’re praying for a safe and healthy delivery.
