I lost twins last year at 21 weeks, almost as early as you can have it. I was very ill with severe preeclampsia. They gave me a 60% chance of recurrence, so going into this pregnancy and before I was SO scared. Well today I am 26 weeks, and no signs of it yet. I can't believe I could be so sick so early, and yet here I am currently having what seems to be a normal pregnancy so far. I at least am starting to feel more hope now that my babe will make it even if she has to come early. At least I have hope now where before, going into labor at 21 weeks there was no hope. I see my MFM every week and take my blood pressure 3x a day. This gives me peace I am being monitored. I thank the Lord with every good blood pressure reading, no taking that for granted here!
