It sounds like you've got your bases covered with the specialists. It's encouraging that you had a near term and term delivery. Many times PE comes on later and milder in subsequent pregnancies - which might bode well for a third. It is a good idea to rule everything out, but I wouldn't give up hopes of another baby if you really want one. MANY of our members never have diagnosis, but manage to complete their families, especially with a history of near term deliveries. Obviously, there are no promises. Some have finally gotten a diagnosis of something after 3 pregnancies. Some might get a diagnosis later in life. I was going to suggest getting acquired clotting disorders rechecked, but with deliveries past 34 weeks, clotting disorders are less likely a culprit. It could be something like Chronic Fatigue or Fibromylagia for which there aren't definitive lab tests, but only clinical symptoms such as fatigue and pain.
