Not neccessarily, there is an increased risk of it though, so just keep an eye out for the symptoms. Try and stay as stress free as possible.

Thanks.  I'm thinking that my previous history will dash my dreams of a v-bac.  :(

My friend was pre-e with her first and had to deliver a month early. Her second was fine and went to 41+ weeks before he showed

They never officially diagnosed me with it with my second but I had high blood preasure the last 3 weeks and a lot of swelling. I was induced because of the blood pressure ultimately. This time around, I'm 35 weeks and my blood pressure was high once but hasn't been since and I have no swelling so far. Hopefully things won't take a turn in the next few weeks.

My little sister had Pre-E and got told she should be fine in her next pregnancy.

Well that's awesome!  Maybe I'll luck out.  Do you get watched more carefully in early pregnancy if you were pre-eclemptic or do they just do everything as normal?

They might be a little more watchful of you in the beginning, but as long as you present good blood pressure and heart rate you should be ok.

I had it with my first but not my second.

My best friend had it with her first, but not her second or third.

I had it with my first (and only) pregnancy and was told that first timers have the highest risk, and it goes down after each pregnancy. Good luck!
