This was also on the Today Show this morning. It's nice to see Preeclampsia getting some press and making women aware!

Fabulous! Just like we have that AFP test around week 16, and the GTT test around wek 28, we'd have this one around week 25...

Even if we not at the "cure" or "prevention" stage...heck, it would be helpful to know to plan...to have at least some advance notice.

As great as this would be, even with this test available, I still will not be attempting a 3rd pregnancy :).

I saw this story on the nightly news. It looks like predicting pe may some day become a reality. What wonderful news. Here's the link. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6786012/
