Can it skip generations?

Postby jean » Sat Oct 20, 2012 11:05 am

I think I've discovered where my HELLP came from. My great grandmother lost many babies...once she had a stillborn child and she had gone into convulsions. My grandmother, however, had 3 children without any issues whatsoever. My mom had pre-e with me, and I had HELLP. So is that possible to randomly skip generations since my grandmother didn't have any problems with any of her kids?
Our first son was born and passed in Feb of 2010. Born at 29 weeks due to HELLP and passed due to NEC. We miss him every day. :~(

Our second son was born at 39 weeks gestation in Nov of 2011. No HELLP or pre-e! Took LDA starting at week 12 and went off of it at week 38!

My grandmother had was sounds like preeclampsia during her first pregnancy with my dad... she also has collitis and I have crohn's so I think it can, and I think I take after her.
