Just a quick update...
Saw MFM today and had full ultrasound. Decided not to do any genetic testing including NT test. Everything looked perfect today! The baby's measurements are exactly where they should be for 13 weeks 3 days. Was told that I don't need to be put on Lovenox, not enough scientific evidence.
I'm feeling better, although not 100%. I have a lot more energy these days!

How are the rest of you in early pregnancy?

Hello! Glad things are going well for you. I am due on the same day as you! My 2nd child after severe PE (but no HELLP) last time.
