I had mild PE at 23 weeks that progressed rapidly to severe PE/HELLP with delivery at 25 weeks last time. My doctors said I was at increased risk for recurrence since it developed so early, but lower risk since I don't have any of the underlying conditions (hypertension, weight issues) that tend to accompany PE & HELLP. They wouldn't give me odds, but encouraged me to try again—again, mentioning that every pregnancy is different and even if PE does recur, it often happens later and less severely. I'm now 20 weeks with #2, no symptoms so far, fingers crossed!
Pre-eclampsia and Stage IV HELLP, c-section at 25.6 weeks. RIP Felix (July 25-Sep 27 2011).
Expecting #2 in early March 2013. So far, so good!
