Welcome back! Pregnancy after pre-eclampsia is very scary. Remember that you go into your next pregnancy with different eyes- and that in itself is one of your best weapons against pre-eclampsia. You know all the signs, and your team knows that this isn't your average pregnancy- you're high risk, and with that comes all the monitoring that can help identify things early and give you options.

Most times all kinds of labs are done after a pre-eclamptic pregnancy to look for underlying conditions. If they weren't done, you might want to chat with your team to rule things out that might contribute to a higher risk pregnancy.

Keep posted as you're able!
