Hi! I just lost my whole message that I wrote to you, so I will try again.....
My doctor also expressed the same concerns as your doctor about my second pregnancy, but I was able to go a lot farther the second time around. My first pregnancy ended at 26 weeks due to superimposed/severe PE, but my second pregnancy went all the way to 35 weeks. Yes, I did develop PE again, but it occured later and not as severe as the first pregnancy. I truly believe that Lovenox shots helped me do so well the second time around. I started taking them twice a day at about 8 weeks along. They also helped my sister get to 35 weeks. We both have these weird blood clotting disorders that neither of us knew about until her OB tested her for them after a miscarriage. Turns out I have them too, and they can lead to pregnancy complications, such as PE.
I wish you the best of luck!
