Hi Rebecca -
We'd really like 5 children too, and just like you I've wondered if I'm pushing my luck as well. #4 is due June. I have had two PE pregnancies and one wonderfully uncomplicated one. With this one (#4) bp has been borderline so far, but no major complications. I have taken it really easy though. My doctor says that with PE you just never know. I really can't find any common factors between my pregnancies as to why or why not PE developed. Testing has not revealed any underlying health conditions. The only thing I can think of is that my family has a history of htn and with pregnancies #2 and #4 I started out in much better shape than the other two. I don't know if there is a correlation there. I guess our decision for #5 will greatly depend on the outcome of this pregnancy. If we make it without major complications then I will take some time to make sure I'm healthy and well, and then we'll try once more. If this pregnancy takes a turn for the worse then I am afraid we might be done. Good luck with everything.

Not sure if I should be running up for the prize but with all three of my preg I have had PE. The last preg ended at 25 weeks with the birth of our little girl. Currently 15 weeks preg and sure to get it again but praying it will only hit after 35 weeks....

I'm just wondering if I'm pushing my luck here. We have always wanted 5 kids and although I'm doing better with this pregnancy than with my others, my Dr. still thinks I will get pre-e and have to deliver early again. Has anyone else had more than 2 or 3 kids that they developed pre-e with? I feel I am in really good hands and am being watched over very closely. Am I being selfish to want one more?
