24 weeks-what do you think my chances are...?

Of not developing preeclampsia again? Last time I got sick around 33 weeks. I was gestational diabetic last time and am this time (doc not sure if type 2) diagnosed both times at 8 weeks. Honestly...I shouldn't have ttc. I weigh more and my BP was out of control when I conceived. About a month before we ttc my doc put me back on the labatelol. However, with just 1 pill a day my BP's have been great for the whole pregnancy/while they were high before.

Oh it's just impossible for us to say - I wish we could!! But, "they" say PE is a disease of first pregnancies so odds are you will be fine & not develop PE. But like you said, already having CHT and being overweight are risk factors. It's great that your BP is behaving so nicely still - that is encouraging. Just being aware of the symptoms to look for is one of the best things we can do in subsequent pregnancies. Hang in there!!

Katie 4/13/05 induced at 38 weeks for PE
Allison 12/27/07 induced at 36 weeks for PE then PP PE & BP issues for over a year
