Preeclampsia

I developed preeclampsia and had to deliver my twins at 32 weeks. I am a type one diabetic and had excellent control of my bloodsugars during my pregnancy. I am considering having another baby. I'm wondering what the risk factors of getting preeclampsia again. I also wonder if being pregnant with twins put me at higher risk and maybe if i am pregnant with a singleton maybe my risk wouldn't be as high?

I am not sure of the likelihood of having preeclampsia again, but I had preeclampsia with my first son and he was born on his own at 35 weeks with no problems. I had another son 2 years later and he was born at 39 weeks and I never showed signs of preeclampsia. I am now 35 weeks with my final baby and still no signs of preeclampsia.
