Re: Does HELLP present the same in subsequent pregnancy's?

Hi Ladies, Still plodding along. I've been getting weekly urine tests and fortnightly bloods done and they are all still normal. I hit 36w + 6 on Monday, which is when I was admitted with DS / diagnosed the first time so am feeling a little more hopeful that HELLP may not come back. However the RUQ ...

Re: Does HELLP present the same in subsequent pregnancy's?

Wow that is weird. I won't make it to my due date though as I have to have a c-section around 38w + 2 (exact date will be booked next week). How did your consult go? My pain was staying about the same until last night when it increased and is now under my ribs & in my shoulder. It hasn't gone into t...

Re: Does HELLP present the same in subsequent pregnancy's?

Wow, I just read your thread & it felt like I was reading my own story. I'm so sorry you're going through this as well, it really does feel like deja vu doesn't it! I've had two more admissions since my last post as the pain has intensified and is becoming more frequent. All my tests have come back ...

Re: Does HELLP present the same in subsequent pregnancy's?

Thanks Lauren :-) I guess I'd be feeling better about this if I didn't keep getting told by the doctors "You can't possibly have had HELLP that early & lasted till 37wks", "it's very unusual the way you presented with HELLP" & "if you get it again it'll come on all of a sudden".

Does HELLP present the same in subsequent pregnancy's?

Hi All, I suffered with HELLP syndrome during my first pregnancy & had ds at 37w + 0 by emergency c-section. The RUQ pain started very mild and came and went, it just seemed a normal pregnancy discomfort so I didn't take much notice about when it started. By 30 wks it had started to bug me so I comp...
