MY mom had it with me, but not my sister, I think. I know my maternal grandmother lost her first three before having my mom.

My mom and grandmother both had "toxemia." They had it for most of their pregnancies. I am not exactly sure which ones exactly. I know my mom had it with me and my brother. My grandmother had it with #2 for sure.

My mom had toxemia with me, after having had a healthy pregnancy, followed by a miscarriage, then another healthy one after me! My sis, who is younger, had PE with her first, then not with the second or third. I'm the one to have it (severe PE) with both of mine! [:(]

My mother was hospitalised with #1 (me) for a month with 'toxaemia' before I was born. I was almost a month premature and weighed 5lbs.
My poor mum then had the shock of me being hospitalised with severe pre-eclampsia the day before my 40th birthday! Ellie was delivered 2 days after my 40th 13wks premature. Ellie was my 1st pregnancy.

No history for me. My mom never had any complications except her thyroid & that was with her 4th pregnancy, my sister. We're waiting to see if that sister develops pe. She's currently 20 wks. pg abouts.

Just me, in terms of diagnosed preeclampsia, but like T, I can thank family members for my hypertension: all four of my grandparents, all of my aunts and uncles, and both of my parents for being the youngest one being diagnosed with chronic hypertension in our family!
