Symptoms to look for include: blurry vision, intense headaches, shoulder pain, right upper quadrant pain (in abdominal area/ribs, right side, may seem hard to take deep breaths), nausea and vomiting, high blood pressure during pregnancy. If you experience these symptoms in your pregnancy, go to the hospital IMMEDIATELY!
