1) Given the history of PE, how likely is it that this PIH will turn in to PE?
really whats the difference? hehe in my opinion both are equally bad and dangerous
2) Is it possible to just have PIH that never turns into PE and to make it full-term ( or close).
Yes, I was diagnosed with PIH/PE at 24-25 weeks and delivered at 37
3) is there anyway at all to predict how much "time" she might have?
no, my doc expected me to delvier between 29 and 31 weeks and I went to 37
3) What are the effects of HBP and/or BP meds on the baby if he is living in these conditions for months?
It varies, for my child the PIH caused low birth weight and low response time at birth, but the low response could have also been caused by the mag.
Again, I know that there are exceptions to everything and every person is different, but with her history and this starting so early, honestly; is she most likely headed for another very early preemie? Of course we want to be optomistic but dont want "false hope", KWIM?
In my second pregnancy I showed signs in the teen weeks, supsided, then they poped back up at 30 weeks and I delivered at 36 weeks. it really varies by the person.
