After having severe preeclampsia last April at 21 weeks and losing my twins, I was given a 60% chance of recurrence. Today I am 29 weeks and 3 days and my BP is normal, and baby is measuring right on target. Hope I can make it to the end without any PE signs. They will do a C-section at 36-37 weeks because of prior fibroid surgery. I have only about 7 weeks to go. I really hope no PE shows as I would like at least one more baby and I will be 41 in November. If PE showed in this pregnancy then I'd feel even more nervous to try again though I know it can show up in any pregnancy after having had it once.
But just thankful that so far things look good...
UPDATE: August 19, 2013 Things are looking great. Still no signs of preeclampsia. I am on the countdown, 17 days to go. I am going to have a C-section on September 5, and I can hardly wait. I am anxious that something bad even besides preeclampsia will happen, but I am trying to stay hopeful that I will get to bring home a baby this time- FINALLY.

Lost my beautiful boy & girl twins at 21 weeks to severe preeclampsia-2012
Mommy & Daddy will love you forever my sweet babies!
Pregnant again, due September 26, 2013. Praying for a pre-e free pregnancy.
Delivered a healthy baby girl at exactly 37 weeks, pre-e free! Had some hypertension post-partum but resolved with BP meds.
C-section planned for September 5, 2013 at exactly 37 weeks.
