Kenya Moore has not been shy about disclosing the less than flattering moments of pregnancy. Most notably, she’s shared various photos of her super swollen feet, but her latest photo of the sort indicates some serious complications. And they may lead Moore to welcome her baby sooner than expected.
On Instagram Saturday, Moore asked for prayers after revealing she’d gained a shocking amount of weight in a single week and she tested positive for a dangerous pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure. It may mean she’ll meet her baby sooner than the expected Thanksgiving Day due date.
“I made fun of my swollen feet at @cynthiabailey10 party. Next day my tests came back for possible preeclampsia… I gained 17 lbs in ONE week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine,” Moore said Oct. 27. “This is NOT normal!
“I took more tests. Baby is fine but if they come back higher #babydaly will have to come same day.
Staying positive. To my pregnant sisters please go to your visits and tell the doctor of any drastic changes. Thank God I have great doctors.🙏🏾 #babydaly #highrisk #love #family #miraclebaby #kenyamoore #babybump #pregnantover40.”
Fans quickly poured out with supportive comments for “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum, who has yet to share any further updates on her condition since then.
“Wow nothing to play about swollen feet always check out. Stay healthy rest rest rest. God Bless you and baby. 🙌🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾”
“Omw I pray God protects u and ur baby.”
“Elevate those feet and get some rest!”
“So glad you went to doctor. I went through the same thing, I knew some swelling was normal but when my feet/ankles were the size of my thighs, not right. Diagnosed with preeclampsia and delivered at 37 weeks. A healthy baby boy who is now 5 years old. You’ve got this!”
“Praying all goes well.”
“Stay 💪🏽💪🏽strong , your feet still look pretty and polished 💅🏽💅🏽 💅🏽 @thekenyamoore ❤️❤️❤️”
Moore, 47, has long shared that her pregnancy is high risk due to her age, and she also has touted the baby she’s welcoming with husband Marc Daly as her miracle baby, which she conceived through in vitro fertilization.
