I understand your fears completely. As I approach 20 weeks, I get more and more nervous. Just try to relax as much as possible. It helps me calm down when I tell myself that getting anxious will only increase my BP and there's nothing I can do to prevent pre-e, so I just have to hope to for the best.
As far as the morning sickness... I did not really have it with DD, I was nauseous but never really got sick. This time however, I'm having another girl but I had pretty rough morning sickness. So, I'm hoping in my case.. that it means that my body grew a nice healthy placenta (hence all the sickness because of hormones?) and this time will be different. It's so hard to know though. Every pregnancy is different.
I wish you the best though for a nice long, healthy pregnancy! I know that's all we all want.
