I am 33 yrs old and unexpectedly we are expecting our 4th (5.5 weeks). I had hypertension preeclampsia with first 3 but occurred late term in which I was induced with all 3; the last two were only two weeks early and 6 lbs thank God. My first baby who is now 9 was the worst due to doctors not inducing early and then everything started spinning downhill fast but only needed to stay 1 week in hosital with several days of magnesium (very sick stuff).

Dont have advice but hope this helped give you some hope knowing that things could work out with early care/interventions.


Hi Antonia, If you could email APEC on I can find some advice for you.

Also, it may be worth posting on our Facebook page if it is other women you wish to talk to. Look forward to hearing from you, Ann Marie at APEC.
