According to the American Heart Association's new prevention guidelines:

"Women with a history of preeclampsia face double the risk of stroke, heart disease and dangerous clotting in veins during the five to 15 years after pregnancy. Essentially, having pregnancy complications can now be considered equivalent to having failed a stress test."

Uh oh...I never heard that..13 years I has toxemia/preeclampsia. Then 6 yrs later my heart went kooky. They thought it was pericarditis but weren't sure. Now I wonder if this was even considered. Moral of the story, tell your Dr everything about your history!
