Hello ladies. I joined a while back, but this is the first time I've posted. My name is Amy and I live in NWA. I have twins (4 in May) and developed severe preeclampsia that went undiagnosed. A week after giving birth, I was back in the hospital with a bp of 170/100 ish. Anyway, after some Lacex and rest, I was fine. I got a copy of medical records which recorded PE, Pulmonary Edema, and Cardio Myopathy. I've been to two different cardiologists since and both have said everything looks fine. I'm now 25 weeks pregnant with our 3rd child and I'm scared. I've been taking better care of myself, excercising and diet and have only gained 11 lbs. so far. There's been no swelling, but a few instances of the flashing, floating spots. Can anyone tell me the chance you have of experiencing PE with a second pregnancy and maybe some questions I should ask my OB (which, by the way, is a totally different one this time!) Thank you so much and it's nice to meet all of you.
