Wow. It is a scary thing, isn't it?
I didn't have it too badly - diagnosed towards the end, and induced at 39 weeks. I didn't really feel unwell though - which kinda makes it scarier, that I had all these things going on, but didn't feel it myself. I'm being investigated for some potential liver problems atm, and I'm wondering if it might be related to the PE.
I'm worried that if I got pregnant again, I might get PE again too.

Thanks so much, @Albert01. We are hoping to use the same donor ☺ I will have to ask about calcium and asprin, if and when we get pregnant again.
Glad to hear uour son is doing well, and that you didn't get PE the second time.

Just popping in to say im almost 36 weeks now and still no signs of Preeclampsia and I'm being monitored very closely so nothing has been missed this time. Im feeling so much healthier this time around. I think it's quite unlikely ill get preeclampsia this pregnancy.

The preeclampsia came post birth. Bp ok the first couple of days after birth but swelling was horrible. Readmitted on day 6 with preeclampsia - bp 160/110, intense swelling, abnormal liver enzymes, headaches. Put on meds then. Needed them for 7 months after the birth. Every time i tried to reduce the dose bp would creep up.
After the 7 months my bp has been excellent. I do have some permanent kidney damage though as a result.
Looking back i feel like the preeclampsia was niggling from the 2nd trimester. I started getting pitting oedema from 22 weeks, dizziness, headaches. I was very swollen all over, and measured full term from 32 weeks. I had polyhydraminos though so it's hard to say what was what.
