My doctors gave me the same odds for this pregnancy as they did for my second (about 12% chance of HELLP, 70% of pre-e), the verdict isn't in quite yet but last week I had a 24 hour urine of 700 mg (but bp is good, baby is growing well and easily passing NST's, so we'll see...they've done steroids just in case and I'm 32 weeks so at a good point.) Just from my observances around here, third pregnancies are almost more of a wild card than the second ones, especially for those of us that had it severe and/or early onset in the first. I'm almost 10 weeks farther than we made it the first time, but it definitely isn't going as smoothly as my last pregnancy (where I had GD, but no protein or pre-e or anything...this time I don't have GD but my protein is up..go figure.)
I have found that being pregnant with a toddler is freaking exhausting, but also nice, because it goes by sooooo fast and is so much easier emotionally (even with my drama, I'm a ton more chill about this than I was or could have been with Luke).
I hope you have a smooth and uneventful 9 months!
