Wondering if anyone here is on their 2nd or 3rd child and had issues with Pre-Eclampsia in a past pregnancy.
With my 2nd I had pre-eclampsia and was induced 4 weeks before my due date. After birth, my BP shot up to 220/116 (hypertensive crisis) and I was rushed to the emergency room 2 days post-partum.
That was 5 years ago. The whole pregnancy was very stressful (outside family issues, etc). This time around, my doctor is well aware of my past issues, I'm on a baby aspirin to attempt to keep my BP down, and I'm taking better care of myself.
Anyone here end up having a normal delivery after pre-eclampsia in the past?

Second and third pregnancies I had zero issues with my blood pressure, and no postpartum complications. 4th pregnancy was a MC, and now I'm 23w with my 5th pregnancy and haven't had any hypertensive concerns arise so far. Hoping for another complication-free pregnancy, L&D, and recovery.
