Not until 35 weeks, but I was on bed rest for two months. Since that pregnancy I have been diagnosed with Celiac disease, so I wonder if I actually had it at that time and it was active because I was eating gluten, similar to a Lupus situation with preeclampsia...

It's unusual to have PE for the first time in a later pregnancy, but not unheard of. There are a lot of possible causes that we think contribute to getting PE, and figuring out which ones apply to which women is difficult at best. It's possible it was just bad luck and that this one will be better. Or it's possible you could get it again. Most women who get PE only get it once. Of those who get it more than once, it's usually later and milder the second time. No guarantees, of course. Either way, you should be considered high risk, monitored closely, and any symptoms taken seriously. How soon did you have to deliver your last baby?

I got preeclampsia around 26 weeks with my fourth baby. No history of it in my first 3 pregnancies. We had decided not to have anymore babies after her, but I find myself pregnant again. Has anyone experienced, or know anyone who has experienced preeclampsia as a fluke after their first pregnancy, and gone on to have a healthy pregnancy after?
