Hi Rivina- I'm happy to say that a majority of women who have preeclampsia in a first pregnancy will not get it again. There is a 30% recurrence rate of preeclampsia, so that means that 70% of women will not get it again!

I have read that in cases of severe preeclampsia, if it is left untreated and let go too long, it can lead to the deaths of both mothers and babies. Much of the time, doctors take this into account, and will induce a baby a bit early to keep things from getting worse. Hopefully, the next time you have a baby, your doctor will take this into consideration, and if you get sick deliver your baby before you get too bad.

When babies are small for their gestational age, it can be a sign that the placenta wasn't working as well as it should have been. There isn't anything we as mothers can do to prevent having small babies, other than make sure our bodies are as healthy as we can make them. Please take care of yourself, and let us know how you are doing!

Is that everytime woman has pre eclamp there only 2 choices mother alive baby dies or mother dies baby alive, is that possible that both mother and the baby alive? is there any we could do at least for baby's weight coz raisha's weight only 2,2. Is there any woman here u knew before for the first pregnancy got preeclamp and the second pregnancy not at all? Is that possible to be like that? I really appreciate if all friends can answere it.

Rivina, I am so sorry to hear about your baby! It sounds like you're saying that your baby inhaled some meconium with the amniotic fluid while you were in labor with her, and she became sick-- is that what happened? If that is what happened, sometimes babies do that when they're stressed, and it may or may not have been because of the preeclampsia. I know it happens sometimes to moms who are perfectly healthy otherwise.

The best thing that you can do to get ready to have another pregnancy is to go back to the doctor and ask them to make sure that you're in the best health to try to have another baby and when you do become pregnant again, for them to watch your pregnancy very closely. Please take care, and let us know what you find out!

Hi there my name is Nina from Indonesia, I really need some information and advice.
I just delivered my baby last September 28, 2004 weight 2,2 and long 42. First of all my pregnancy doing fine, untill around 3 weeks before my blood pressure become 130/80, before that since 5 months pregnancymy hand,foot,finger become bigger. Everytime visit the doctor I always ask is that ok or not? or What happen to me? The doctor always said its ok, normal,natural.Then 3 weeks before my blood pressure become 130/80 and that time the doctor still said normal nothing to worry about.And day by day everytime I check always around 130-160/80-100 and the doctor decided to deliver my baby by sectio, but he wait until 38weeks.When the time comes to sectio, when the baby comes out she didnt cry hard, and before she came out, she drinks the water (the colour become green and mixed with her pup),that's why the doctor have to put her in Intensive Care Unit Room.In Oct 1, the doctor said she's doing much better tomorrow we've planned to give her milk so I have to pomp my breast and Oct 2, she's become wrost and become not wake up until 2 hours and she gone. I dont know is that impact from pre-eclamp or is there because something else? Coz the doctor said she got something wrong with her metabolism cant receive protein so that the protein become amoniac, I dont think that the problem is metablism. I think the problem is from the pre eclamp? So I want to prepare for the second pregnancy after 3-6 months? what should I do then? At least I want to make the weight more bigger the her (my first daughter). I really need help and ionformation. I really appreciate it.

I would also encourage you to contact APEC (Action on Pre-Eclampsia) our sister group based in the UK. They have a great organization and are real mentors to us in this process. You can find their links on our Link page. Go to the Home page, click on Links, and it should be there!

Good luck!!

Hi Traci, welcome to the forum. I'm so very sorry for your loss.I guess I don't count really count because I'm a displaced Irish person, I live in Arkansas. However, I do know that "Joanne" lives in the UK. She is hugely pregnant right now so may not be in a position to post very regularly right now. I know she'd be happy to have a compatriot. You could try emailing her!!!
