Many women who have PE in their first pregnancy go on to have healthy pregnancies thereafter. If you have it in a second pregnancy, your risk is very high for having it in subsequent pregnancies. But since you had it with a first pregnancy, I would think your chances are good to not have it again. Nobody can say for sure though.

I think it is hard to say. It is possible you could get it again and it is possible you can go on to have a normal pregnancy. I am sure another poster can give you a better idea of odds based on your specific set of circumstances. I have had it more than once and all of my children have been with the same father. I started off at different weights, in different conditions of health. I guess there are a lot of different mitigating factors.

I hope that you are able to have a healthy uneventful pregnancy with health care providers who are just the right level of vigilant.

Congratulations on your new baby:)

Hi mums and dads!!

I had severe preeclampsia 9 months ago and had to have an emergency c section, now after waiting the suggested 9 months we tried again and after 1 go we are expecting another baby. i am so scared of having it again my last baby was born at 34 weeks at a healthy 4lb13 we are blessed and lucky) i took every vitamin you need from 2 weeks before trying to get pregnant, never smoked or drank and proud to say this pregnancy so far i have done the same, but i am still scared this baby will be earlier than the last, the father of the baby is the same as the last (as i know that one risk is having differnt dads). i have heard that the risk of p/e returning is high if you had it real bad last time, can anyone share there similar story with me?.....

give me hope? xx
