I got preeclampsia at 26 6/7 weeks with my first pregnancy and delivered that same day I was diagnosed. I am now 13 weeks pregnant with my second. Other than morning sickness in between weeks 7 and 12 and a persistent sinus infection, I am in good health. My blood pressure is fine. My OB did start my on Heparin injections last week to thin my blood as blood tests showed I have a high risk for clots. I'm seeing an Oncologist (blood specialist) in one week who will determine whether I should continue Heparin injections throughout the pregnancy. I'm just praying this pregnancy turns out better. My son Seth was born a day shy of 27 weeks, weighing 1 lb 7 oz. After a few months on the ventilator, he devoloped Chronic Lung Disease from which he never recovered. He passed away at 5 1/2 months old, weighing 8 lbs. We miss him so much and fear losing another baby or having another baby in the NICU for months on end.
