DHA and pre-e.

Have read that it reduces your risk of pre-e. Did anyone take DHA while pregnant and pre-e did not surface or it did but was milder and you got further along. Maybe all this is coinsidence!

Re : What did you doc do for you?

I was put on 1200mg Calcium and 1000mg VitD. My drs have not said anything about retesting but the next time I see any of my docs I am going to request it.

Re : Need some help!

They look at your Hematocrits, Liver enzymes and Platelets. HELLP can start out as one being off or all or only 2. Have regular and frequent BW is key to detecting it and monitoring your counts so if something starts to go south, they can intervene but delivery.

Re : Is the pre-e?

Caryn thanks. If it is considered unmasked CHT then wouldn't I be medicated now for it or when my BP starts to creep up? The mag ox I am on has really done a great job with my pressures I must add!
