Is it common to have another eclamptic seizure in your next pregnancy?

How common is it to have an eclamptic seizure again after your first child? I am very healthy and have had no medical problems until I had gotten pregnant and that is when shit hit the fan. When getting ready for the spinal, I never got it because I had the eclamptic seizure instead, then the seizure medication made me go completely blind. I have no other seizures after the pregnancy, no any other real problems. I just had a seroma and I expected that, but that was easy to deal with.

  • I know it is possible, but not likely. This is my 4th pregnancy and my OB is watching for signs, but i had no problems after my first born.
