I just wanted to say how reading through your posts really reassured me that there is hope everything can come out ok the second time around. I have been having a little hypertension and I didn't realize until I read through your posts that its not automatic preeclampsia. Although I know I'm still at risk because of my first pregnancy it really helped ease my mind to read your experience.
