I was here for the 11 weeks of my last pregnancy. At 8 weeks , the fetus stopped growing. I MC in Sept 03.
In the pregnancy before my MC, I delivered at 34 weeks because of Pre-E. When I told my prior OB about my Pre-E, she brushed off my concerns, saying not to think about it, and I would not get it. I posted about that, and got alot of great advice. I did not switch providers at that time, because I was familiar with the office, and afraid to change.
I have a new doctor now, very pro-active, and I am 6 weeks pregnant. He ordered 13 tests for me to find out what may have caused my Pre-E and miscarriage, immune, progestrone MTHFR, etc. Most came back normal, I am waiting for the MTHFR results to come back. If I have that genetic defect, we discussed treatment, which is increased B6,B12,Folic Acid, and perhaps a blood thinner. We also discussed him sending me to a Perinatologist, if I have this problem.
I guess I am writing to say thanks for the support, and that if you are not 100% satisfied with your Dr. - change! I wish I would have.
I wish you all good luck!
