I had HELLP with my first at 28 wks. Then with my 2nd PE/HELLP never came.
My mom had toxemia w/me. She never had anything happen with my brother.
My question is, I know that sometimes pre-e can happen paternally....I'm wondering about chances and stats that my SIL would get this through my brother. Since my mom didn't have it wth my brother, I didn't know if his chances of passing it on would be more slim.
She also is on med. for siezures, so she already has some odds stacked against her in that aspect. I worry that this could cause more problems. I just wanted to see if anyone knew the likelihood of passing it on paternally. Esp. if it is a hereditary thing and his mom didn't have it with him.
Our first son was born and passed in Feb of 2010. Born at 29 weeks due to HELLP and passed due to NEC. We miss him every day. :~(
Our second son was born at 39 weeks gestation in Nov of 2011. No HELLP or pre-e! Took LDA starting at week 12 and went off of it at week 38!http://findingtherainbowconnection.blogspot.com/
