  • Um..Pre E. Can happen or not. Morning sickness has nothing to do with it at all. I had no sickness or Pre E.

  • It is my understanding that pre-eclampsia "usually" only occurs with a first child or with multiples... At least that's what I was told by the OB who had to deliver my son three weeks ago because I suddenly developed pre-eclampsia at 39 weeks...

    My fingers are crossed for you!

  • I had severe morning sickness with both of my sons and only had pre-e with the first son. So I'd say the morning sickness doesn't really have anything to do with it. The chances of you not having it the second time around are really very good. Good luck and congratulations on the pregnancy!
