Yeah I had pre eclampsia with my daughter. I'm really scared ill get it again and earlier this time. I have a really stressful job as a waitress in a hotel so I'm non stop running around as its always so busy. And work doesn't want to give me a risk assesment so I don't get any extra breaks etc

I am really scared of the same thing. I had pregnancy induced hypertension from half way through the second trimester so I was high-risk early on but it was not full pre-eclampsia until right at the end. I am so scared it will happen sooner this time and obviously there is the high risk of pre-term labour. I was trying to be positive and think that from what I had read there was a 75-80% chance not to have it a second time but my GP and midwife made me feel like it was just a matter of time again. I am trying not to worry and people keep saying not to think about it but that seems crazy...how do you can I not worry about it? I am a mature student in my last year of university so I am at a very high stress time in my life but physically I am not having to exert myself.

Ugh it's impossible to not think about it! I think about it almost non stop. I think the meeting with the consultant might calm me down a bit. Another girl who had it as well bought a bp thing so she could measure her bp at home. Might do that as well.

I know, it is such strange advice!

DH wanted to buy one too. I am confident in catching it though. With DS I noticed to rise in blood pressure and went to my local A&E to get it checks out and then they sent me to hospital in an ambulance from there. That was when it first went high but before it went into the 'red zone'. Plus, I was told I will get regular checks starting at around 20-25 week but I will not know how often they are until I see the consultant. The really big worry is that if it happens again it might happen sooner.

Big style. That's my biggest worry.
Fingers crossed we'll both be fine and not have it again and have normal pregnancies!

Welcome! It's great to finally move out of scary 1st tri isn't it?? I've started to feel the baby move last week. Not a lot but I've felt some flutters. It's my second so hence why I probably recognise the flutters

Yay welcome! Do you have a feeling what it is? I have the feeling this one is going to be a boy. Chinese gender predictor said boy and the wedding ring test as well

I felt my son at 13+1 (the second time he did it that day the MW confirmed he had just kicked the Doppler so I know it was him) and this time I felt very faint flutters at 10+3. It is not often and really faint but I know it is not anything else.
