  • It could go either way. I was really scared in my 2nd pregnancy bc I had hypertension but my OB told me never to compare your pregnancies because they are always different. In my case, she was right. I did not develop high BP or hypertension in the 2nd. I hope the same is true for you, GL!

  • Have you been watching your eating habits and getting plenty of protein and enough water? If you had issues before you should be paying close attention to the things you eat.

  • to add to what amileegirl said...watch the stress levels too. I got majorly stressed having to do a risk assessment at the health department (37 weeks). my BP spiked, and all of a sudden i had protein in my urine and I was swelling. I knee it was from stress so I refused to go to the hospital and instead went home to try to sleep. The next day I was fine and went on to give birth at 40 weeks with out any problems!
