Depends: If your kidney function is totally normal (tests can be done to check this) and you have no blood pressure issues at all, then the chance of getting preeclampsia should be about the same as that of the general population, which is approximately 15%. See your doctor to have kidney function and blood pressure assessed before you start trying to get pregnant.
