blood tests for clotting disorders would be done by a hemolotogist. A peri may be able to ready kidney/liver tests (as may your ob)

Just FYI, the whole panel of blood clotting disorder tests can take a month to come back as well.

good morning ladies!
I have enjoyed reading each of the replies thus far! as i am sure you have found, talking with people who have been through similar situations is so comforting! I enjoy hearing each of your stories and updates as well.
Mada--thanks for clarifying the folate question! good to know i still remember some things. YOu also cleared up a question about perinatologists that i had. i was thinking they must be the same as a high risk pregnancy specialist...good to know for sure. i am hoping my new group has one of those..there are a ton of doctors so i wouldn't be surprised
Catherine-- i am glad that so far you are feeling well. i will pray that puking thing doens't strike you again...that definitely does not sound fun in the least! i also have given my new dr. my med. records from last time. if and when i get pregnant i will ask my dr. to go over them with me so i make sure they have a clear understanding of what went on..or maybe to clarify to me seeing i don't remember all that much..haha.........thanks for the fertility dance..i think this is my fertile week so we will soon find out LOL
Evansmom--thanks for the input..i was going to be treated with an baby aspirin each day had i gone through another pregnancy with my old dr. i will ask about it this time around too. hope you are feeling well!!!

Thank you all for your replies! I look forward to talking with you more! have a great day
