I would love to, but there is only 1 MFM in my area! (And he might be the only one in the state too?)
Our first son was born and passed in Feb of 2010. Born at 29 weeks due to HELLP and passed due to NEC. We miss him every day. :~(

Our second son was born at 39 weeks gestation in Nov of 2011. No HELLP or pre-e! Took LDA starting at week 12 and went off of it at week 38!

Yes, congratulations!!
I agree with the other posters that turning a blind eye to clotting disorders seems to be a strange approach. And did he say why he doesn't want you taking LDA?
I would search for at least a second opinion from another MFM doctor before you make your final decision. Hind sight is always 20/20 and you can't turn back the past once it's passed you by.

I gasped when I saw your post! I'm so happy for you!

You've been through so much... I cannot imagine. But I hope you'll be encouraged by the many success stories posted here. Fear doesn't add anything to ourselves, it just robs us of joy and hope. It can be really hard to find that off switch, believe me.

I don't like what I read about your doctor though. I would argue that there is evidence supporting lda benefits when appropriate. And I wouldn't want my doctor advocating that we turn a blind eye to clotting disorders. It's always good to have knowledge. Regardless of that, it seems like you would have more confidence with a different plan. Don't worry about being the squeaky wheel. Fight for your baby, and your own ease of mind. You've earned that.

Congratulations Jean!

I think if you are that uncomfortable with your OB's plan (and I would be in your shoes also), I'd start looking for someone else now. Even if you like your ob, you want to go in with a plan that you are comfortable with.
