I can't answer all your questions, but I also had my antiphospholipid antibodies checked afterward and was negative. What I was told is that PE can happen even when there is no underlying condition. I don't know that there are any other tests that "should" be done, but I asked my doc to check my Vitamin D level, my c-reactive protein level, and my homocysteine level. Since these were easily tested with a blood draw she humored me, but they were done at my request and not at her recommendation. Actually the APA test was done at my request (and my expense) too- I recall the specialist I saw saying it wasn't going to affect much, but I wanted it done anyway.

I just got my post pe 6 week blood test results back and they all came back as normal (except for slight anemia) ie i have no underlying conditions ...the tests they did were for antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (B2 Glocoprotien i and cadiolin AB) ...
1) are there other tests that should have been done ?

2) are there other instances where women have had no underlying contions but still developed PE? ...

3) has anyone here not been fd with an underlying condition and had a successful 2nd pregnancy ?
