No hei Riina!

It's nice to see another Finn here. I also lived in England for a year, in 2001-2002. :)

I would like to hear your story, so please re-post it when you find a moment. Kiitos!

Moi Karoliina,

Hello from a fellow Finn!! I live in England but originally from Iisalmi in Finland. I had severe PE, HELLP and almost lost my life in my first pregnancy. I did post an introduction but it disappeared into cyberspace!! Wishing you a healthy and PE free pregnancy.

Thanks for all the fresh welcomes! And it's nice to see so many of you expecting babies around the same time. Visually imagining roadblocks for all of them until F/T. :)

Welcome! I am due 4/21 with a little boy! So far so good and he is weighing in larger than his sister did at birth! So that is making me feel a bit better. This is right around the time I developed PE with my dd so I have been really nervous about it happening again. I def know that if made me feel better to be as aware about all of this as possible!

Hi Karoliina and thanks for sharing your story.... wow. It's funny, isn't it, once you learn something how you keep wanting to learn more about it? I'm so glad Stella was born without complications and you were ok.... stick around keep posting and get to know us! Welcome.... like you, I was driven to learn all I could about this disease.... and to protect my current baby. We're a week apart in due dates!

Thanks, Sara!

And how interesting about your husband! Although we in Helsinki don't really like Turku. *grin*

Hi Karoliina! Welcome to the boards. As the others have said, this is a wonderful place to find information and support. Feel free to look around and ask questions.

Also, my husband is half Finnish. His mom is from Turku. :)

Thanks, AmbersJourney! :)

Did you get this far without PE in your previous pregnancies?

Good luck to you, too!
