I doubt that the lack of milk is related to preeclampsia.
She is now 32 weeks and is therefore beyond the risk of having a catastrophically preterm baby; infants born after 32 weeks generally do very well. If the baby is normally grown, then the prognosis is indeed very good. It does not mean that you will avoid preeclampsia, but if it developed it would be at a time that woud be manageable - IF identified promptly.
Weekly visits after 34 weeks are probably appropriate; NSTs if BP elevates of if there is IUGR.
