Unfortunately I don't think they have seperated odds out for a third pregnancy like they have for a second pregnancy.
Sometimes women who get pre-eclampsia more than once have an underlying condition of some sort. I had pre-e twice, and now have chronic hypertension. Which carries about a 25% chance of developing superimposed pre-eclampsia by itself, even without a history of pre-e.
I'm glad you are seeing a specialist, they should be able to test for underlying disorders and give you a better breakdown of your individual odds. Good luck!
