Last year at my annual OB appt (one year after a 26 wk delivery due to PE) my OB told me the path report from my placenta showed "multiple infarcts". I know these are blood clots, but what is the relevence/significance to PE and what could have caused it? Is it typical to have placental infarcts with PE? I think I read somewhere that women with Antiphospholipid Syndrome (?) may have placental infarcts. I think I was tested for this last year and it was negative, although one of my immunoglobulins (IGg, IGa, -not sure which one) came back slightly elevated. My OB (also specializes in high risk) plans to place me on at least a baby asa, but probably lovenox SQ with my next pg. Dh and I are currently TTC. I will be seeing my OB this Tues. ARe there any questions/concerns I need to bring to his attention? I would appreciate any input!
