Anyone have swollen hands & feet & protein in the urine before 20wks thats now gone?

Hi ladies

My sister-in-law is only 16weeks and has got swollen hands and feet and when she saw her midwife on Tuesday found out she's also got protein in her urine... she's not had an easy ride so far what with bleeding in first trimester and she's now beside herself that she'll end up bed bound and delivering early through pre-eclampsia....

Her midwife doesn't appear concerned at all - have any of you had similar and its gone away now? just want to be able to reassure her, she's got no other symptoms and its the first time protein has been found and as she's not in the final half of her pregnancy, I think for the moment it should be ok but some 'live' examples might calm her more....
