I am so sorry for your loss :(  I have never had severe preeclampsia, but I was on bedrest for high blood pressure my first pregnancy...my blood pressure was fine the next 5 pregnancies.  Actually, I wasn't on bedrest the entire rest of my 1st pregnancy, I was actually ok during my last 4 weeks after following the brewers diet that a visiting nurse recommended I try.  It worked.  I'm not sure what your blood pressure was though, since you mention severe...mine was about 160/high 90s.  My Norm is 100/60 ish.   Anyway, it may be worth giving a look at if you haven't already.

My daughter was born at 20 weeks and 5 days. At the time it was unexplained pre term labor. She was my first baby. When I was pregnant with my son, at my appointments my BP was always normal. I was taking NSTs for gestational diabetes and because I have lupus/RA and I was high risk. My BP would always be high after walking a block or two through the city and then a long walk in the hospital. I was having contractions at 32ish weeks so they sent me to L&D. Once I was laying down my BP would be a bit more normal, but it was never consistent. It would jump really high and then five minutes later I would have a normal pressure. I had all the symptoms for pre-e for several weeks by that time. I ended up hospitalized a few days later for monitoring. That's when I was finally diagnosed with an atypical presentation of pre-e ns eventually HELLP. My son was born at 33 weeks. Not a successful as I would have liked but he is here. I believe I went into pre term labor with Norah because I had the same sort of a typical pre-e. my doctor told me a lot of women can have successful pregnancies afterward, I am just very at risk for it because of my auto immune disorders.

I am so very sorry for your loss and what you had to go through. I do not have personal experience with it but wanted to give you a good luck and praying everything will be ok in the future during pregnancy. Have you talked with your dr?

I'm very sorry.... I had preeclampsia with my first but it didn't get really severe until I was in labor.  I did have a successful next pregnancy, just had horrible morning sickness for about 7 to 8 months.  I didn't change anything by choice (literally could only keep down coffee and green peppers)

im so sorry for your loss. i cant imagine being in the possition of having to choose.

i had pre E with my DD luckly it didnt become life threatening till i was 36 wks. so she was an emergancy cs. i then had a DS born 2 yrs later. because of my previous bith we monitered my BP both at home with a meter and weekly office visits and monitering. i was also on bed rest from week 25 and strict bedrest at wk 32 with DD and bedrest from week 20 with DS. i had to moniter what i ate. lots of salt free foods, plenty or fruits and veggies and tons of water. i pray that you can find some answers and finally get your rainbow. may your little one rip ((hugs))

Have you ever heard of taking magnesium supplements from the start of your pregnancy? You can get the mag-g at Walgreens that is supposed to help with that and contractions! Research it and see what you find,I recommend magnesium gluconate. The citrate will give you trouble with your stomach but the gluconate never bothered me

I had it with my first (It didn't set in until late) and i had her a month early. I successfully had a son 2 years later.

I am sorry for you loss. I have never had that. But I have had two friends that did. They both have decided not to have more children. One because she has other things going on to and they are not sure they would be able to get her as far as her first was.
