I would ask for thyroid too as I just found out that may be my problem after the death of our second.

My MFM ordered tests for antiphospholipid syndrome (clotting disorder), specifically
(Not sure if those are the official names, but I just looked on my online med chart and that's what it said)
Hope this helps!

There isn't a standard workup; all MFMs use their judgment and intuition to order different tests. :)

I would want a baseline urinalysis and ANA at least, plus a family history. Most clotting disorders haven't panned out as causal in research but some docs will still check for them. The autoimmune stuff is definitely relevant.

What blood tests will the MFM order before TTC again after pre-e? I know they will test for autoimmune and blood clotting disorders but does anyone know what specific tests they order?

I was going to go ahead and have the doctor that I work with order the blood work so it would be ready when I see MFM July 26th- to be one step ahead. I can't believe my regular OB didn't order any blood work... :?
