I was very scared during my subsequent pregnancy! It is a frightening journey, and not a pleasure cruise, unfortunately! Counseling helped me regulate my emotions during that time. I hope you can find ways to ease your mind. We'll be here to hold your hand along the way :D

I was on baby aspirin during my second pregnancy! I can't say though it is THE reason that I got much farther than in my first pregnancy.

That's the new recommendation! I'm glad your docs are up on the latest. Here's a link: http://www.preeclampsia.org/women-encou ... -providers

We white-knuckle our way through these subsequent pregnancies even when everything is going well. I didn't relax until about 2w postpartum with my last.

2nd pregnancy and baby aspirin

Hi all! I'm Leila and I was one of 3 ladies who helped coordinate the Houston Preeclampsia Walk last year! I appreciated all the help, the advice, well wishes and so forth that this community gave me with when I was going through pree with my daughter. So incredibly grateful and blessed to be able to give back to the foundation in May.

I didn't realize how MUCH of a mental toll Pree had on me until recently.... and not that I was on denial or anything but I thought in 2012 when I had my daughter at 31 weeks, I had processed the whole thing. Apparently not, since I'm more anxious than ever! I am 10w6d along and so NOT looking forward to the potential preeclampsia in our future. I have read and researched what I know now about pree during the 2nd pregnancy and I'm not necessarily looking for advice.... just curious. I was told this morning at my ultrasound appointment that I have to start taking a low dose or baby aspirin. Just wondering if anyone else had to do the same thing? And perhaps a happier pre-e free result? Yes, I'm fishing for hope even though the odds are stacked against me, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

Thank you all so much ladies!!
