Congrats! What a scary first pregnancy you had!! If you haven't already I would consult with a Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) doc who specializes in high risk patients and will know any and all underlying issues to test for as well as chart a course of monitoring that is right for you and your unique situation.

Keep posted as you're able! Wishing you a healthy pregnancy!

Surprise! Baby #2

We weren't trying or anything, in fact i was in denial for about a week over the symptoms. I'm scared. The only symptoms I had were swelling and the very last couple days proteins in the urine, then straight into Eclampsia at 27w 5days. We both died and came back. New doctor is fairly certain that I will have it again, and I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to avoid this? I've read bed rest, no EXERCISE. Less salt, doesn't matter. Any tips?
