Preeclampsia with 2


Any successful second timers? What are the chances? I’m extremely 😥 anxious

I am based in the UK/NHS care system. I had severe and sudden onset of hypertension with my first 170/110 at 38 weeks. Protein in my urine, although can’t remember the level - I ended up developing preeclampsia. I was hospitalised until they eventually induced me at 39+5. Unfortunately no amount of bp meds had any effect.

I am now pregnant with #2 and there is 15 months between the end of my first pregnancy and the start of this pregnancy. I am extremely anxious that the same will happen again, but earlier this time... I am currently 14 weeks and taking 150mg of aspirin daily. I hope it will be enough to prevent it from reoccurring
