I had forgotten about this list. Brings back some memories. I spent so much time putting it all together and am thrilled that others can benefit from it. It's been over 2 years now and I am happy to say that little Bethany is here and doing well. She turns 14 months next Monday. We had a long bout of pih but no pe! Yeah! I am very content with my two little girls and will NOT be having any more. Best of luck to you all!!!!!

An awesome list Amanda. I think with those extra added bits, you have covered everything. I recently had a pre-conception consult and it was really wonderful... my specialist was really patient and thorough and I left feeling really informed and impowered about everything. I hope you have the same result and wish you all the very best.
love Lucy

Thank you all for the help. I am not a computer person. I recently became hooked on the internet after I lost my son. Thank you again.

Hi, Christy. TTC is "trying to conceive" and NST is non-stress test. It takes a while to get all the lingo ;) !

What a great list. I am meeting with a new ob/gyn and hopefully a good peri and your list will be of great use to me. Thanks so much for sharing this.

Thanks, Amanda, and Gossamer, for sharing all of your questions, and I wish you the best, Amanda, with your doc. I reiterate what Gossamer said, that please feel comfy, EXTREMELY comfortable, with your doctor. My true hope and wish for everyone here is to be blessed with a doctor like mine: not only knowledgeable in preeclampsia, but one who is very empathetic about the importance of family and who treats you with respect, answers ALL of your questions, and never lets you leave frustrated. Hope that you find the perfect doc for you, from preconception all the way through post-partum.

Hugs,
Norlisa

I think that is a great list. If you feel that your doctor is frustrated with all of your questions, I would look for another one. This list of questions gives you the opportunity to determine how comfortabe you will be. IF you feel intimidated or rushed or not taken seriously while you are in the pre-conception phase, how will you feel in your 7th or 8th month? Trust your gut. THere is a doctor out there for you, I hope it's this one, but it may not be. KEep us updated.
