Congrats on your double blessing! And I'm so sorry for the loss of your first sweet little one.
I wasn't officially diagnosed with HELLP in my first pregnancy, but looking back I think I should have been. My platelet count certainly qualified, and my other numbers were just this side of diagnostic. That baby was born at 35 weeks via induction. I had PE again with my second baby, mild at 37 weeks. I then had a set of twins. I was diagnosed with PIH at 22 weeks, PE at 31 weeks, hospitalized at 33 weeks, and induced at 36 weeks. I ended up with severe post partum PE, but my twins did great.
Wife to Brett 6/30/02
Mom to Ethne Joy 10/12/03, 35 weeks, severe PE
Mom to Catie Grace 12/8/06, 37 weeks, mild PE
Mom to Riley Faith and Gavin Arthur 7/7/09, 36 weeks, PIH 22 weeks, PE 31 weeks, severe post partum PE
Mom to three angels Grace (12/15/05), Ian (7/28/08), and Declan (5/23/15)
