Hi all,

I will definitely be perusing this forum now. I delivered my daughter @ almost 24 weeks on Oct 17th. We found out (on Valentines day) we're pregnant! :)
10/17/2011 ~ Mychael Elaine was born sleeping. We miss and will always love you!
9/16/2012 ~ Michael Leon was born, God is so good! Severe pre-e again, induced at 34 weeks, c-section due to baby's heart decelerating with each contraction. 1 week in NICU. I'm done! :)

Congratulations!! It can definitely be nerve-wracking in subsequent pregnancies... sometimes you just feel like you are waiting for PE to show up. BUT you do get to celebrate everyday that you and baby remain healthy! It puts a new perspective on those 9 precious months that God uses grows your little miracle!
I hope you have a long, uneventful pregnancy! Either way, use this forum to fully support you.

Yipee! What a great Valentine's Day present. I've been amazed at the stories here of women going full term with no problems with a history of really early onset pre-e. Hope you have the same outcome!
