I saw this story on the nightly news. It looks like predicting pe may some day become a reality. What wonderful news. Here's the link. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6786012/

Fabulous! Just like we have that AFP test around week 16, and the GTT test around wek 28, we'd have this one around week 25...

Even if we not at the "cure" or "prevention" stage...heck, it would be helpful to know to plan...to have at least some advance notice.

As great as this would be, even with this test available, I still will not be attempting a 3rd pregnancy :).

This was also on the Today Show this morning. It's nice to see Preeclampsia getting some press and making women aware!

I hope they get it to be a test well before week 25, in fact if they do get it approved as a test, I hope it becomes part of every pregnant woman's visit to the doctor from conception to delivery.
