severity? did you have more children? what was the outcome? were you free from pre-e or HELLPS, was it less severe, more, the same? i had my first at age 37. we were planning a homebirth. i was induced at 40 w and 1 d for two out of three symptoms of HELLPS. even though i felt fine. blood tests were the indicating factor. i was wanting another baby but now after researching the disease i am absolutely terrified.
