Re: So confused!

No more blood since Saturday morning and cramps have died down. Now I just have the pain on my left side. The doctor has closed and still haven't heard back from him. :(

So confused!

This cycle has me very confused. I started having a 26 day cycle last month. I saw DH Thursday-Sunday (last week) and think I was due to ovulate around Thursday-Saturday of last week. I had light OPK on Wednesday morning, then light Thursday night/Friday morning and didn't get any chances to test in...

Re: ANA Positive?

The MFM also told me that the tests can be positive, then negative, then positive, so if you don't catch it at the right time you may not know what it was. Are they going to treat it as autoimmune and have you take the meds for that?

Re: Seeing an MFM on Thursday!

What is Lovenox? When do you start LDA? I'm a few days past ovulation now and hoping for BFP this month. :) I lost my daughter at 27 weeks. HEELP and clotting factors are suspected, but nothing has been confirmed yet. I met with a MFM, but haven't received any test results back yet, but she did say ...

Re: ANA Positive?

The MFM ordered ANA as one of the preconeption blood tests. She said it could have been a factor in my daughter's death. You may need to take asprin (or more) during pregnancy to help prevent clots/ other issues. Have you talked to a MFM?

Re: Introduction- Central Florida

Joy, have you asked them to refer you to the Maternal Fetal Specialist? There is one at **** and **** Hospital has one, so it wouldn't be too far for you.

Re: Blood pressure going up at 24 weeks

If you haven't already INSIST you see a MFM! I had borderline readings and was sent to be evaluated (at 26+1). I was told everything was fine and to go home and continue care with the MW. She died on 26+5. If they won't give you a referral tell them you have notified them that you think there is an ...

Re: Making the call to deliver baby?

I would want to deliver if there was ANY sign of pre-e. I was sent to be evaluated at 26+1 and sent home (borderline readings, small amounts of protein at MW, none at hospital) and she died at 26+5, so if the doctor says to get the baby out I'm going to 100% agree.

Re: borderline BP but other symptoms? (sorry long)

My daughter died and they never recorded BP readings over 140/90, so it's possible to have "borderline" readings and still have pre-e or HEELP. (The OB thinks I had HEELP.)

Re: Seeing spots, BP normal

The highest my BP got was 140/90 and my daughter died, so it was bad enough to cause damage. I would ask them to do an ultrasound to check fluid levels/ growth.
