Kenya Moore is sharing nearly every detail of her high risk pregnancy with her fans.
On Saturday, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star revealed that she had gained 17 pounds in one week after suffering a scary pregnancy complication. Moore announced she was expecting her first child with husband Marc Daly in April.
The 47-year-old reality star complained about her swollen feet on Friday, while attending the launch of RHOA co-star Cynthia Bailey's new event space and wine shop. As Moore explained on Instagram, doctors said that she might be suffering from preeclampsia, a pregnancy complication that, is“characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to another organ system, most often the liver and kidneys," according to the Mayo Clinic.
Moore shared that she had taken more tests, but those results might require her to give birth early for the safety of her baby.
