I did some follow up testing with a hematologist after my son was born. All was normal, no clotting disorders.

Congratulations on your pregnancy! Were you tested for clotting disorders?

Early in 2nd Preg after HELLP and over 40

Hello, all!

I am 41, and 12 weeks into my 2nd pregnancy. My son was delivered via emergency c-section at 28 weeks due to Class I HELLP. He turned 6 earlier this month.

I live in a rural area, the high risk OB visits once a week so I will be followed by both a local OB and the high risk. I had an initial meeting with the high risk doctor two weeks ago. I have a potential antibody issue due to the blood transfusion I received following my son's delivery, the history of HELLP and my age.

I have no underlying conditions and my pre-pregnancy BP was 116/74. The high risk doctor recommended the baby aspirin, which I started immediately.

My next appointment with the high risk doctor is Feb. 7. Looking for any advice as I prepare for the meeting. Are there specific questions I should be asking, tests or monitoring I should insist on?

Thanks!
Amy
