There is thought to be a correlation with miscarriage, yes, because the placenta doesn't set up properly in some miscarriages either, and that's why those pregnancies fail. I'm not sure if blighted ovums particularly are connected, because they haven't broken them out as a separate category. (I've had one, for what that anecdote's worth.)

The tricky thing about early pregnancy is that we just can't study it very well. One of the researchers I talked to at Saving Grace said he didn't think we'd really get a good idea of what was going on in preeclampsia unless we could draw blood every hour from weeks two through seven...

I am just curious...well not just curious,I am worried as well.Do you have any knowledge on that? Having had two very similar missed abortions and PE makes me really scared to think about TTC again.

Million thanks in advance.
