Advice for second pregnancy after pre e

Postby sazdorn » Fri Mar 06, 2015 09:00 pm

Hi I was hoping for some advice for the second pregnancy after pre-e.

My symptoms last pregnancy began around 28 or 29 weeks. I was officially diagnosed at 31 weeks and delivered at 34 weeks after being on procardia and bedrest for 3 weeks. It didn't go away after delivery and I still had it and was on blood pressure medications for 6 weeks after delivery.

We are not pregnant yet but are starting to talk about it. Is there anything I should do for next pregnancy or does anyone have any stories to share? I have read about the brewer diet and the baby aspirin. Is there testing I should undergo for clotting disorders etc? I had read about that a lot time ago and can't find any posts recently. I moved states so will have a different doctor than the last time. I'm extremely anxious about the second pregnancy!

Any advice or stories would be really helpful!!

Thanks
