I went to the ER both times and had pulmonary edema along with extremely high bp. First experience I was admitted to the cardiac floor and wa...

Re: Past partum pre-e twice

Thank you for your reply. It's always nice to hear positive feedback about the decision to try again. Family and friends aren't quite as supportive. I often get "is it worth not seeing your kids not grow up just to have another baby?" I also have a friend that told me "everything we do in life has r...

Re: Pregnant again baby #5

Can I ask why they are suggesting you terminate? Were you in good health prior to becoming pregnant?

Post partum pre-e twice

I'm new to this group and just thought I would give a small background as I'm now tossing around the idea of having another baby but obviously am quite scared. First pregnancy, bp elevated around 37 weeks, delivered with scheduled induction at 39.5 and all was well. Second pregnancy bp elevated arou...

Re: Post partum preeclampsia with 2 pregnancies

Thanks for your replies. Seeing that the risk of post partum pre-e happening again is increased scares me a lot. So many emotions.

Re: post partum preeclampsia now and a baby after the ordeal?

I have 3 children ages 5,3 and 1. With my last 2 I developed post partum pre-e. I saw a regular ob while pregnant with my 1st and 2nd and a mfm while pregnant with my 3rd. I developed symptoms (shortness of breath from pulmonary edema at days 5 and 6 post partum) which prompted me to go into the ER....

Re: Postparteum eclampsia - SO SCARED to get pregnant again

I developed post partum pre-e with my last 2 children. I am meeting with my mfm next month to discuss the risk of a 4th pregnancy. I will say that I went in a day sooner with the 3rd child because I recognized the symptoms and was treated immediately. They even performed an echo in the ER within an ...
