Thanks.
I had a mild case with my first pregnancy that was easily treated with delivering him only a week shy of 40 weeks...second pregnancy, nothing...third time wasn't a charm. I had "severe" post partum PE & am still (two years later) on BP meds... =0(

It's Getting Closer

It's getting closer to the time where we said that we'd try again for number four. I'm still pretty terrified and nervous about getting PP PE or PE again but worse... I'll never know unless we try, but I don't want to die trying, ya know?
It's been two years tomorrow that I was rushed back into the hospital with severe PP PE...
