Hi allexx,

Thank you so much for your kind words! That's what our Forum is here to do. And your story can DEFINITELY help bring comfort to many more people. So many PE/HELLP moms try for so long and struggle with infertility; it's comforting to know there can be a rainbow at the end of your storm. I am sure that you love and honor both your babies in all the you do to share your story!! Thank you. <3

Hi all,

I wanted to say thank you for creating and maintaining this forum!! Although I haven't written much since I've joined, I have read a lot and it helped me to understand better, feel not alone, and get some hope! Now is time to bring something back to you all - here is very shortly my journey:

After 5 years of trying and unexplained infertility (meanwhile I will be 40 this year), with IVF we got pregnant and we were so happy (January 2013)! At week 24, I got HELLP syndrome, my baby girl, Julia, died (June 2013) in my womb and I was admitted in Intensive Care not sure I will make it out! We found no underlying conditions, nothing.. luckily I recovered well quite soon.. so I went back to the IVF journey (which took us around 5 trials - frozen and the last one fresh). What I took during this second pregnancy: baby aspirin (80 mg), acid folic (4mg) and vitamin B6 (100mg) [last 2 because of mutation MTHFR], calcium 800 mg, Fraxiparine (low heparin 30 mg- a sort of lovenox) and Tirax (75mg) (my thyroid value was low). My baby boy was born without any intervention at 35 weeks and 4 days (12-03-2015), normal delivery - PE/ Hellp Syndrome free... As unexplained as all the other unexplained events in our life...

Sending all of you hope and love..
allexx - with half of my heart broken and half happy
