We are due date buddies as I just got a positive test (our first month of really trying which is crazy considering it took us 1.5 years to conceive our daughter and 9 months-6 with fertility treatments- to get our son.)

I hope your appointment Wednesday goes well!

Wohoo! Congratulations! This is great news. Very happy to hear :D
PE is not diagnosed before 20 weeks (we've had some posters who have been diagnosed at 19 weeks I think - somebody correct me if I got this wrong). If your BP is elevated before 20 weeks, you'd be considered a chronic, even if outside of pregnancy you have normal BP.

I'm pregnant!- mixed feelings!

So, after trying for quite a while and three failed rounds of Clomid, we gave up "trying" and I just found out yesterday I am pregnant! After the first month of "not trying" ! I'm excited and happy but also a bit nervous and it shook my world a little because I had already gotten used to idea that it wasn't going to happen! I have my first Dr's appointment on Wednesday. Everyone wish me luck!

P.S: How early can the symptoms show? Is it possible to get preclampsia in the 1st trimester?
