I had severe preeclampsia in my last pregnancy in 2004 spotted at a routine antenatal appointment at 29+6 weeks and ended of delivering at 30+1 weeks he weighed 2lbs 8oz. I had high BP, protein and swelling. I'm now pregnant with my second currently at 30+1 weeks. My last growth scan at nearly 29 weeks they estimated my baby at 2lbs 7oz on 10th centile. My BP started to rise at 20 weeks and they put me on Labetalol.
My BP was high again yesterday at my midwife appointment so got sent straight to the day unit for BP profiling, bloods and urine all negative.
I'm obviously watching for things to start happening again but wanted to know if the symptoms second time around are different, how likely am I to get it again, and how severe if it did happen again.
I'm lucky because I am being monitored closely see the midwife every week and consultant every 4 weeks after my scans.
