Lee Ann how are tests done to check your egg quality? Do they take your "egg for the month" so you can't TTC that month? (Sorry if that's a stupid question)
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!

No, I really didn't know there were supplements to increase the quality of my eggs. I should ask about it. I am trying to find some research articles on the reoccurance of preeclampsia in those women who have Invitro. My reproductive ensdocrinologist says my risks are no more than if I were to try again on my own....but that's not what I am finding in some of the research. I have read that because women have to take a lot of hormones that that in itself can double the risk of preeclampsia. So, I am like a little nervous here...I think I will e-mail my OB and ask if she has any information on it.
