Trying to get pregnant again after sever preeclampsia at 17w

Postby jennymoshin » Sat Oct 19, 2013 02:04 pm

Week and half ago I lost my twins at 17w (induced labor) due to sever preeclampsia (hypertension, protenuria, headache and vomiting). I'm thinking about getting pregnant again (IVF, singleton) but concerned about getting preeclampsia again (no diabetes, overweight, no history of hypertension). Any advice highly appreciated

I'm so sorry for the loss of your twins, and your illness :(.

Have you met with a high-risk OB to get an assessment?
DS born Dec. 2008 at 38.5w gestation. Mild PE diagnosed 3 hours before he was born
DD born Dec. 2010 at 40w1d. BP was slightly elevated since 37w, and climbed while in labor (started on my own). Severe PE diagnosed hours after DD born.
DD born Sept. 2013 at 38w. Induced (and I had to fight for it!) due to high blood pressure. No protein, but had brisk reflexes and clonus after delivery. Doc gave me a mild preeclampsia diagnosis anyway and said I'm likely to be a chronic hypertensive later in life.
