I am sorry to hear your story of your second pregnancy, it sounds scary! Glad all went well in the end.
Has your doctor talked to you and your husband and explained in more detail why he thought that another pregnancy would lead to such tragic consequences? If not, I'd go and find another doctor (preferably a MFM) for a consultation and see what s/he has to say about your case and another pregnancy. If underlying disorders were not tested back then, you might want to have these done as well. A good check-up of your general health is probably a good idea too, so a doctor has all necessary information about your past PE history and current health status.
