Brief Answer:
This is not a sign of preeclampsia.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to Healthcare magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi wani. I will be answering your concerns.

A BP of 124/82 and trace protein in urine is not a sign of preeclampsia.
However please note that a rise in the diastolic blood pressure of at least 15 mmHG and a rise in the systolic blood pressure of at least 30 mmHg as compared to your earlier BP (recorded in early pregnancy) is also considered as a sign of preeclampsia.

Is this your first pregnancy? Do attend antenatal follow ups regularly. The incidence of preeclampsia is one in 10-12 pregnancies. So relax and enjoy your pregnancy.
I hope this is helpful.
If you have further concerns,
I will be happy to answer.

Best wishes,
Dr Rama

Brief Answer:
Occurrence of preeclampsia in the second pregnancy is extremely unlikely.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome back.

Did you have preeclampsia in first pregnancy? If yes, then there is a small possibility of recurrence.

If you did not have preeclampsia in first pregnancy, its occurrence in the second pregnancy is extremely unlikely. So do not worry at all.

I hope this is helpful.
If you have further concerns, do write to me.

Best wishes,
Dr Rama
