Re: Study with Prevastatin to stop early preclampsia

Yep, there's been one coordinating through the NIH at several sites for a few years now, including Pittsburgh and Boston IIRC.

Re: I would like someone to talk to, pregnant with 2nd, had pre-eclampsia with 1st,

I'm glad you've found us! Later pregnancies are completely nerve-wracking - I stayed off the forum with my last, because I just couldn't talk.

Re: Scared and Don't Know What to Expect

I am glad to hear her pressures are behaving! You're completely right that while there are guidelines, there's a lot of variability and unfamiliarity around this condition - which makes no sense when it is so common.

That's the new recommendation! I'm glad your docs are up on the latest.
