I had severe PE borderline HELLP syndrome with my first at 35 weeks and gave birth within 48 hours of diagnosis. My oldest was 3 years 2 months when my second was born. With my second I had mild PE just short of 37 weeks and induced rather than wait until I got as sick as before. So yes, my second time I still got PE but milder and later. My third ended up being twins. I had PIH at 22 weeks, mild PE at 31 weeks, hospitalized with moderate PE at 33 weeks, gave birth at 36 weeks, and turned severe post partum. It struck earlier but was slow progressing until post partum, but having multiples is a whole 'nother set of risk factors and not really a good comparison. My second was 2 years 7 months when my twins were born.
