In the last 7 weeks of my pregnancy with my son, I had super high blood pressure. It got all the way up to 209/119. ( I developed a heart murmur from this.) My son was born by c-section at 34 weeks, Whats the odds of having the same problems with the next child?

Was it preeclampsia or just high blood pressure? Do you have high blood pressure when you are not pregnant? Did the heart murmur go away

I was the exact same thing with my son. Born at 34 weeks and my BP was 250/211, had seizures and almost died. I was told sice the Pre-e went so far and ravaged my body so bad I'd end up in a really bad place if I were to have another :(

Its 50/50 cause, i had it with both of my boys and it came out of no where with my second. Plus I have FFL(factor five leiden), which increases my odds to get it every-time. :/
