    Hi everyone, I had pre eclampsia with my first and am now pregnant with number 2 and just wondered if any of you had pre eclampsia with the first but fine with subsequent pregnancies. I've got to see a consultant in October but am worrying about it happening again

    Hiya - I had preeclampsia with my first but haven't had it this time as yet. I didn't get it til the end with no.1 though. My friend had it at 28 weeks with her first and didn't get it with her second or third pregnancies. So while you'll be slightly higher risk it's not a definite xxx

    Hey - I had it with my first, I have just been seen in pre-pregnancy clinic before TTC. I have developed permanent high BP since my pre eclampsia :( but it is now controlled with medication. They have told me I am at a slightly higher risk of developing it again, but not a definite. They have also recommended taking Aspirin from 12 weeks as this can assist with healthy placenta development. x

    hiya I had pre eclampsia with my first ended up having him at 37 weeks, had high bp ever since, ended up in hospital with my second with really high bp but no protein so never progressed into pre eclampsia. not sure what is going to happen this time! they have taken me off my medication so I have more consultant appointments just to keep an eye on it x
