  • pre-eclampsia is a common thing and does NOT occur with every pregnancy and MOST folks and babies come out of it just fine. In fact, it CAN be control well with diet and meds. Don't freak out so much. IF you start to show signs again, eat more protein, drink lots of water and look into the "Brewer's Diet".

  • Like Bradenismyson said it doesn't happen every time you get pregnant, I promise. Try to relax, I know I hate when people say that but really take a deep breath and IF you are pregnant then you go from there. Because you do have a history they will probly watch you like a hawk for swelling, protein levels,etc so they can catch it early and treat it at the first sign of a problem.

  • I would agree with the previous posters. Each pregnancy is different. Go for it mama :)
