Caryn...I think I understood a lot more than I thought I would in that article.

However, could you explain in layman's terms mothers with AA and fetuses with C2 alleles/genes whatever...I obviously didn't grasp that part.

Both. Read the "over the top" link above; they go into it in more detail in that abstract. :-)

Also, is it always the father's sperm...or is it the way that particular mother reacts to the sperm? Like if my husband were to remarry would he likely "give" PE to the next woman?

My husband's brother had a 9 1/2 pound baby girl at 41 weeks. She has Von Willebrand's so I wonder if her body almost did what lovenox would do.

My sister on the other hand has had three children with two different fathers. All completely normal and she has used midwives with them all. I'm happy for her, but sometimes I was to kick her for it! (jk)!

As I understand things, no. Except insofar as the genes he's carrying that govern the behavior of the trophoblast count as an underlying disorder.

My husband's brother has fathered a child with profound IUGR. I tend to assume they share some genes in common that have to do with compromised placentation, and that my SIL had a different response to those genes than I did.

I never thought about that...

Is it possible that a husband's U/D could trigger PE?

No. Genetic therapy is extremely hard to pull off; if anything, it would be a technique for the future.

Would it be of any value to get my DH tested for underlying disorders. I have been tested for all of them and an completely healthy. Would treating an underlying condition in my husband, help to change his genes so I can sucessfully carry his babies.

The PF is working on a system to connect women with ongoing studies -- but I don't think it's up and running yet.

is there any way to put yourself in a PE study if you're pregnant? If I do decide to do another I would like to donate my body during that time to research, but I am not sure how to enroll in a study.
