Let OB know: Today's technology is good at handling pregnancy induced hypertension, but clearly having eclampsia during your first pregnancy puts you at huge risk for the second child. Letting your OB know, making all appointments, following advice closely, and letting the OB know of any fluctuations in your condition will help the most. Also complying with any special instructions, and taking meds correctly.
