I am 36y/o. I have a 10 year old son and a 17month old daughter with a second marriage. We would like to have one more child, howerver I developed PIH 3 days after delivery with both children. I never had protein in urine or any other symptoms. It was very bad with my son with readings 200/110, my kidneys took a slight hit due to the Bp not being controlled for another 48hrs. I ended up on Bp meds for 3 months after his birth and my kidneys were fine after magnesium. My daughter was less severe Bp readings were 155/90 at the highest and i was only on meds for 2 weeks after delivery. I consulted my OB and MFM and was told that I would again be at risk for this happening again. They could not tell me how mild or severe it would be. There is also a chance it might not happen at all. Both my husband and I are very confused, and not sure what to do?
