  • I have a friend that had it with her first but NOT her second or third. So I am sure that just cause it was with one doesn't mean it'll be with the next :)

    If you are really worried call your OB and talk to them about it...

  • Just talk to your OB, they might just put you at a High Risk catagory just to be safe.

  • I had it w/my first - blood pressure way up, lots of water retention, bed rest for the last 3 weeks. NOTHING w/my second - totally uneventful & undramatic second pregancy (2 1/2 years apart).

  • I had really bad pre-eclampsia and post eclampsia with my first and and a milder but still serious case with my second. My Dr. advised me not to have anymore and dh got a vasectomy. Everybody is different, talk to yo Dr. Like the pp said they will probably put you in a high risk catagory. Good luck!
