With my first pregnancy in 2006 I had pre-eclampsia develop around 26 weeks, and my son was born at 31+4 weighing 842 grams due to reverse end diastolic flow. He is almost 7 now and full of personality. Since then I have had 5 early miscarriages and one missed m/c (also first tri). Now I'm pregnant again, 5 weeks 6 days. My HCG levels are normal but towards the low end, my progrestone is right on the border of normal and low. I take baby aspirin.
I have an appointment with my dr tomorrow, but I feel like I need to go in armed with knowledge so I know what to ask for. I'm going to ask for progesterone supplements regardless, as well as a viability ultrasound scan later this month. He has never encouraged me to pursue testing for the m/c's but I think I'll ask for some basic bloodwork (ANA? lupus anticoag? anti-cardiolipin?). He is generally very receptive to what I suggest, especially if I have some scientific backup for my requests, but I don't have enough time between now and then to do enough reading to feel really educated on what to ask form. Any advice??
