I also delivered at 26 weeks, in July. In September, I met with the peri who delivered my son to talk about future pregnancies. He performed all of the tests mentioned here (except Factor V, he said it was not necessary although I'm going to beg for it again before we start TTC) and all of the results came back normal. So, he said the next steps for us would be to get ourselves emotionally and physically ready to try again.
I'm not sure what the treatments are if some tests come back positive but, I'm sure someone here will have the answer! As far as negative results though, for our specific case, next steps = we were told to keep taking prenatals, add the Vit C & E, calcium and baby aspirin once we started trying. In the meantime, it was also recommended that we start an exercise program. So, it's off to the gym I go...[8D]
Good luck at your appointment!
