I am kind of wondering the same thing someone else asked and have a concern. Can you have 2 with pre-e and a 3rd pregnancy without? I am currently pregnant with my 3rd and had pre-e with the first two, supposedly.
With my daughter I had the swelling and the BP kept creeping up. I was on bed rest from 34 weeks and made it till 38 weeks when they finally induced, she was 8lbs. With my 2nd, we got pregnant at 5 months pp, not expected and had a fine, until my normal 39 week visit. They took my BP and it read 150/111 I was told I had 30 min to get to the hospital. I got there, they started a mag drip, an epi like they did with my first, to "keep my stress down" and after breaking my water he was here within 3 hours, and 8lbs. 3 oz. Im not sure if just fear and nerves alone can make you have a BP of 150/111 but that one BP read is all they went off to make me deliver him and classify it as pre-e again. I have a feeling the 2nd wasn't pre-e and they just decided since I was so close, had a BP that high, and was already 75% effaced, 3.5 cm dilated, -1 station and having contractions( i couldn't feel) that they just took him to be safe. If I had the piece of mind that I really didnt have it a 2nd time I think it would tremendously take my stress level down about this one. Just wondering what your thoughts are.
