Please go give support..

Anna was pregnant with a boy when preeclampsia struck in full horrifying force at 20 weeks. She lost her baby. Her story is heartrending- please go offer support here

Thanks to the 'miracles' of science, we can now tell what genes predispose to preeclampsia. Both maternal AND paternal genes contribute. Sometimes the greater, higher risk gene actually comes from the father. Someday, I hope medical science evolves enough to the point where they include these genes in routine pre-pregnancy screens- they might help avoid such horror stories.

I'm so sad-life can be so bloody unexpectedly horrible.
