I, too, had two pregnancies due to preeclampsia. On my first one, I wasn't aware
I, too, had two pregnancies due to preeclampsia. On my first one, I wasn't aware what preeclampsia was. The Dr. would constantly monitor my bp from 30 wks.of my pregnancy. I was also a little chunky back then. At at 38 wks. it was too high, so my Dr. admitted me to the nearest hspt. which they induce me. My daughter weighed at 7lbs &4 oz. She's now 7 yrs old and healthy.But I never figure out what caused it.Its a mystery. Five yrs later, I was pregnant with my second, and I weigh only 125lbs., I made my frequent ob/gyn visits. Then I was hit my preeclampsia sooner then my last one, my due date was July 7, 2003-the Dr. had to admit me to the hspt. earlier and gave I birth on June 11, 2005. My son weigh only 5lbs & 4oz. And now is a healthy two yr. old boy. And now I found out I'm pregnant with a third and I'm scared to death and dreading the fact, if I might get preeclampsia early too. For now I could do, is go to my Dr. visits and stay alert and prey that everything comes out good.
