I had severe PE and HELLP w/my first pregnancy and delivered at @ 34 weeks after 7 weeks of PIH. I'm now almost about 39 weeks and scheduled to deliver via c section on Wed of this week!! I have no signs of PE and BP is still good. I have been taking Lovenox this pregnancy which may be the reason I'm PE free since I have a clotting disorder.

With my first I had pre-e and HELLP and had to deliver at 24 weeks, 6 days. With this little one I am currently 29 weeks, 1 day, and no signs of pre-e or PIH yet! Hoping it stays that way!

I had PE PP with #1. With #2 BP went up and up but was controlled by meds, was PE-free and started labour naturally at 37+5 weeks. Currently pregnant with #3, BP and meds are going up but, so far, it's ok. I'll be 40 in July - my best present will be reaching 32-weeks and still be pregnant!

Hi there,

I did not have post partum eclampsia but I did get pre-eclampsia with both sons. I just gave birth to Megan Audrey at the age of 40. The pregnancy was picture perfect although she was a bit smaller than expected. She was 5 pds. 6 oz, and I expected her to be over 6 pds but she is over 6.5 pounds now so she is growing!

Anyway, good luck with your decision.

I had severe PE and HELLP in my first pregnancy and was emergency c/s at 34 weeks.

My second pregnancy was PE and HELLP free. I was put on precautionary bedrest at 32 weeks, and delivered (repeat c) at 39 wks as another precaution as well.

I just had my second child after suffering from severe pp PE and HELLP with my first. So far, I am only showing some mild hypertension, which seems to be behaving with meds. So, it does happen! I sure hope it goes well for you as well next time around.

I had PE and HELLP which worsened immediately following delivery followed by two weeks of hospitalization. No PE with my second, and like SueAnn we had a 37 week delivery to avoid any potential late term/postpartum issues. The stories of others really helped me when we were contemplating number 2.
