Congratulation on making it this far without any signs of PE. Having said that, I would watch your BP closely and stay in close contact with your doctor. Your BP might just go up a bit, or you might end up with PE. In my pregnancy with Matilda, all was great until I hit 33 weeks, slight protein in my urine and some BP spikes, which then accumulated to elevated BP, and eventually it got to some high ranges at which point I was delivered. I did not develop HELLP though. So, I don't have the story you were looking for. But I am glad you are as far as you are and are aware what to look out for. Good luck and please let us know how it goes. Will be thinking of you.
