I had pre-e in m first and 3rd pregnancies. The pre-e in my 3rd was more severe. In my 5th, I had Class I HELLP Syndrome. So my point is, there are just some of us who defy conventional wisdom and go off in weird directions. <sigh> With my 6th, I was on bedrest in the hospital from week 34-36, when I was induced for uncontrollable blood pressure. This time, I was admitted at 27w5d. I am now 30w2d and so far my MFM is sticking with the plan to keep me here until delivery.
Probably not what you wanted to hear. But that is my story. I have chronic (hereditary) hypertension (since I was 21, not related to weight or diet) and I am 40, so I am sure those are factors in my being here, if that helps.
(And I already signed the paperwork for a tubal after delivery. It breaks my heart, but clearly, my body doesn't do pregnancy well and age isn't helping!)
