Hi Anon_131190,

I hope that everything went well with your tests and you are doing okay. It is normal to feel nervous and scared during pregnancy. Try to take it easy and keep up your great job of controlling your diabetes. I don't know if the preeclampsia could have any affect on this situation, but a c-section is always an option if the baby is unable to be turned.

Here is some more information for you look over and speak with your doctors about.
