Mum to Angel baby,
I wish I could say something to make things easier. I'm 25 weeks pregnant and very anxious too. Oh, mother-in-laws, what can I say? Mine is already pressuring my husband to plan more children after this one. I confronted her and asked her if she realizes how dangerous preeclampsia is. It's up to us if we decide to take the risk again. As for you, all you can do is eat well, take care of yourself, and watch for symptoms. If you do those things, it is not "up to you" to produce a healthy child. You can only control that which is actually in your control. I wish your MIL was more sensitive to how stressful this pregnancy is on you. The last thing you need is more pressure. Remember, there are a lot of us going through pregnancy after a loss. You are not alone. It's hard, but we can do it. I will keep you in my prayers.
