Re: Seeing an MFM on Thursday!

I'm so glad your appointment went well and that you liked this doctor! Spectrum Essentials makes a non-fish oil DHA supplement (it's actually produced by algae; my husband did some of his PhD research with the company that makes it and has friends who work there). When I was taking it (stopped becau...

Re: MFM vs OB? Opinions pls

I saw both an OB and a MFM in my first pregnancy (because we knew I had lupus as well as a potential cervical issue). I felt like the OBs were really just rubber-stamping everything that the MFMs said and weren't really doing anything. I thought the MFMs were good, but they didn't even take my blood...

Re: When to TTC after severe pe and a stillbirth

I am sorry for your loss. When I was delivering my son (s/b at 22 weeks), the OB told me that I could not get pregnant again. At my 6 week pp checkup, he briefly went over the pathology report and then spent the rest of the time talking about sterilization and giving me brochures to the fertility cl...

Re: Placental Pathology?

Hi amjon. I'm sorry for the loss of your daughter. I pulled out my pathology report and will copy the portion referring to the placenta below. I had HELLP and pre-e at 22 weeks and had been having symptoms (URQ pain) for several days before we went to the hospital. My son had already passed when we ...

Re: Getting anxious/going crazy

Congrats on the weight loss (and lower bp!) I think it's normal to waver between being excited and nervous/wondering if TTC again is the right decision. Even though my DH and I have decided on TTC I still wonder if it's selfish of me to want to try again, knowing we could end up with another bad out...

Re: Had appt with MFM, overwhelmed

It's really hard to sit down with a doctor and have these kinds of discussions. When my husband and I left our consultation a few months ago, I was barely able to hold it together long enough to get to the elevator - I didn't want to be hysterical in front of pregnant women, since the MFM we saw is ...
