At my last check up, I forgot to tell the doctor about eclampsia. Is that ok?

In brief: Important to tell

Preeclampsia/eclampsia may be a forerunner of later hypertension.
Your family physician and your obstetrician should know about your history of preeclampsia/eclampsia. You need to be monitored for late development of chronic hypertension. Persistent neurologic sequelae have been reported after eclamptic seizures.

True, specially since some of these patients remain hypertensive depending on their family history and future weight gain.

In brief: Tell your doctor!

If you had eclampsia (seizures related to high blood pressure and protein in your urine) with a previous pregnancy, this is very important information for your doctor to know.
Call her/him and tell them what happened. You are at increased risk of it happening again and they will want to watch you very closely in this pregnancy.
