I'm new here and I've also had Pre E in my first pregnancy. I consider myself fortunate as we have a healthy baby girl and I recovered without developing Eclampsia after her birth.
My husband and I want to start TTC at the end of the year as our little girl is now almost a year old. We want two children and even though I only plan on becoming pregnant one more time, it still feels like a huge risk. There really doesn't seem to be enough research done in this area which scares me even more.
I developed Pre E later in pregnancy and delivered at 38+5 and although the thought of getting Preeclampsia again makes me feel ill, I could handle developing it again later in pregnancy but the possibility of getting it earlier or more severe terrifies me! Being a completely healthy 24 year old when I first fell pregnant and still getting Pre E was a huge shock and a massive blow to my confidence as I felt weak and like my body was letting my baby down.
If anyone has any information on how closely we are monitored in subsequent pregnancies and what tests and things they do differently I would love to hear it!
