Re: Seeing an MFM on Thursday!

Lovenox is an injectable anticoagulant (blood thinner). Many women who have experienced IUGR early in a pregnancy have it prescribed for them. If you test positive for a clotting disorder, you may have it prescribed as well. I am not going to start LDA until a few weeks before we officially start TT...

Re: Third time is not a charm :(

I'm sorry about the bumps you've been experiencing. I also hope things stay steady and baby stays put for many more weeks. (((hugs)))

Re: PLACENTA ACCRETA

Not much to add on accreta, but it's funny to hear the different interpretations of the 18 month rule, which I had never heard about until recently and now here it is again. I just met with an MFM who said 18 months from conception to conception, which would make approximately 9 months in between pr...

Re: Seeing an MFM on Thursday!

Thanks for the replies, everyone! I didn't really think about seeing another MFM. I thought about it before this appointment, but maybe I was so happy with our meeting that I let it slip my mind. I think I will get a second opinion, just in case. I'm pretty sure she knew about the IUGR I had with Gr...

Re: Seeing an MFM on Thursday!

Forgot to add- we went to Costco afterwards and I bought their generic LDA, which said it was comparable to Bayer. Is there another brand I should look into instead? I forgot to ask doc. Also, my OB wanted me to stay away from fish oil but to keep taking omega-3s. I bought a super fancy one from Tar...

Re: Seeing an MFM on Thursday!

I'm back! I really liked this doctor, she was very thorough and patient. She answered all of my questions (some before I even asked them) and didn't make me feel like I was being a pest by asking so many things and quoting things I'd read online. Here's a recap: She said she would never say no to tr...

Re: Seeing an MFM on Thursday!

Thank you for all of the replies, well wishes, and hope. My appointment is tomorrow afternoon at 330 and I am getting more and more nervous!! The day after Gracie passed I was still in the hospital (c-sect recovery) and the MFM who saw me towards the end of my pregnancy came to my room to offer his ...

Re: preeclampsia and how long was yours managed before deliv

I was told I had HELLP at around 5am and baby was taken via c-section at 5:27pm because of my labs going to poo. :(

Good luck in your new journey.
