I have PCOS which is loosely considered an underlying condition though there are many, many women with PCOS that do not get pre-e. But other than that, they found nothing, and I went to 2 different MFM's. My MFM still believes I probably have some sort of underlying clotting condition that they may not have a test for/is known, especially given our daughter's severe growth restriction, so they put me on blood thinners anyway. I had a healthy second pregnancy on blood thinners (LDA and lovenox) with DS, and so far have made it 5 weeks farther than my first pregnancy for my third pregnancy.
It sounds like they didn't do a full thrombophilia panel, which I would have wanted done, and I'm not sure if the lupus test is included with that or not, but I know we've had some posters that have that end up coming up.
