Don't panic Laura, I know I'm being facetious but if you lock Allie up in a convent until she's around 30, that gives Dr. Easterling and the others about 25 years to come up with something better than bedrest!
It's a fair point though, my OB has warned me that when the girls are old enough to get pregnant they need to know that they have a higher risk of PE than the average. A great legacy no? I worry about my sister too. She's due in April and although she's never had any problems... darn it, I didn't look like a PE candidate. I stalk her answering machine asking about her OB visits. Did you know that in the UK they are actually trying to cut back on prenatal visits? So enlightened. In Ireland she reckons she pays about 300 euros ($325) a visit... such an incentive to encourage people to access good care.
