Re: Testing prior to conception

I had tests for autoimmune and blod clotting disorders (thrombophilia panel). You're regular doctor should be able to perform these tests as would your gynecologist (some do and some don't).

Hope that helps!

Re: Generic Lovenox?

I was on enoxaparin (generic lovenox) pretty much my entire pregnancy. Before getting pregnant, I was on the name brand lovenox for another health complication. Yep... huge price difference. I paid $750 for 14 shots of the name brand and $150 for a month's worth of generic. Heparin I paid even less ...

Re: When do you start lookin @ Premie clothes?

I understand what Angie is saying. I had the morbid thoughts in an opposite way... I didn't want to have to deal with any of the baby things if we were to lose Noah too. Once I hit 30 weeks I did buy one preemie outfit just in case as well and thankfully we didn't need it and I just donated it(and a...

Re: When do you start lookin @ Premie clothes?

Yeah, I wouldn't get anything yet, but that's just me. I am kind of superstitious myself after losing our first baby. The only things I would make sure you have are a car seat and a sleeping arrangement for when little one comes home. You really don't need clothes while in the hospital because most ...

Re: When to TTC after severe pe and a stillbirth

Yes, being told to wait seems harsh and unfair. I remember being so upset and all I could think about was trying again to start our family. My OB and MFM told me to wait 7 months to a year just to make sure I had optimal healing from my c-section and so that my body could bounce back to the way it w...

Re: Was your second pregnancy different after preeclampsia?

Did you have bleeding in the beginning of your PE pregnancy? What about your PE free pregnancies? I did not have any bleeding in my PE pregnancy, however, in my PE free pregnancy I had a few instances of spotting. Did you ever feel bad or sick with either pregnancy? How did each pregnancy differ? wi...

Re: pregnancy clothes and irrational thoughts!

I had many phobias during my pregnancy. One was telling people I was pregnant (I waited until I was 20 weeks), the second was maternity clothing (didn't wear any until I was 24 weeks) and the last was getting ready for the baby... I didn't start that process until I was about 28 weeks. I was was so ...
