Well, it's hard to say, but for me, I got severe preeclampsia at just before 21 weeks last time with my twins and I had to deliver them at exactly 21 weeks. This pregnancy, I was on 81 mg of aspirin daily, calcium, Vitamin D, and Lovenox (I had some other blood issues). My doctor said all these things won't hurt, and might help. So, who knows if it was what helped or not. But, I am 36 weeks, and 3 days and I am going to deliver by C-section in only 4 days at exactly 37 weeks, (early because I had another uterine surgery prior and so they want to do a C-section and prevent labor). So far, I have had no signs of preeclampsia. The MFM, my OB, and another MFM all gave me a 60% chance of having a recurrence, but it has not come back in this pregnancy. So, it may be aspirin, calcium, or Lovenox, or just so happens because it's a different pregnancy or not a twin pregnancy, it didn't come back. I think aspirin and calcium shouldn't hurt to try it.
