Re: post partum preeclampsia now and a baby after the ordeal?

I have 3 children ages 5,3 and 1. With my last 2 I developed post partum pre-e. I saw a regular ob while pregnant with my 1st and 2nd and a mfm while pregnant with my 3rd. I developed symptoms (shortness of breath from pulmonary edema at days 5 and 6 post partum) which prompted me to go into the ER. My dr was much better prepared to deal with my symptoms as a mfm than my regular ob. I was treated with Lasix each time. The 3rd baby I was also treated with mag and labetelol for 6 weeks. I'm meeting with my mfm next month to discuss a 4th pregnancy and the risks associated with it. I've found that 37 week induction may be a way to help post partum pre-e (someone posted an article from this site) and that the less time in between pregnancies can also help as well. Best wishes.
