I am glad that both your girls are healthy and well:-)
Have you been tested for underlying health issues, e.g. Lupus, clotting disorders etc? Most likely you would have had these tests in- between your pregnancies. If you haven't, you can try to set-up a consultation with your MFM to go over both of your cases of PE and ask about these tests. Your primary care physicisn could order them as well.
When I asked my MFM about reoccurrence in a subsequent pregnancy, he let me know that in some cases PE tends to come back pretty much the same way as in the previous one.
