Caryn, thank you. You are the best for typing all that out with a newborn. I am going to read the sources in depth later.

A couple of things stood out to me. First is the distinction between an autoimmune response and the immune response the way you described it. I thought the OB meant I had something like Lupus that was undiagnosed and causing me to have these complications. I was upset because I was tested for all of that right before this pregnancy, tests were fine, so not sure where the automimmune piece was coming in.

The other point I wonder about is if the Lovenox and LDA aspirin are relevant to this second stage of invasion. I will have to research that point. Just reading the description, I don't think so. And that would explain why they didn't make a difference with this pregnancy.

I also thought the information on pregnancy intervals was interesting. I have read about the two year interval helping with pre-eclampsia recurrence.

I was so focused on not getting pre-e and HELLP again that this loss has completely surprised and devastated me.
