My name is Terra and I am 26 years old. My son Jacob was born in May 2005 and I had PIH and PE. I am very nervous becasue I just found I am pregnant again and I really want to avoid the issues that I had the last time around. I know almost nothing about PE, PHI and what casues it and I am praying that there is something I can do to minimize the possibility of getting it again. I was so scared and I felt so guilty because when my doctors put me on bed rest I continued to work because we are so dependent on our two incomes to get by. My son was born 5 lbs 12 oz when I was induced 37 1/2 weeks and was barley breathing when he wsa born becasue I had been on maganesim drip for almost 48 hours. Durring labor my blood pressure was above 200/(don't remember the bottom number).
Anyways I am here hoping to reap some knowlege from you woderful ladies.
