Welcome. It can be helpful to have a pre-conception appointment with your OB or MFM (high risk OB) to review labs that may have been done in your previous pregnancy as well as labs to look for any underlying issues. When you become pregnant, it is common to do a 24 hour catch early in your pregnancy to get a baseline of any protein.

Best of luck and keep posted as you're able!

Lab Tests

Postby kerric » Sat Jun 20, 2015 01:46 am

Hi Folks,

I had pre eclampsia at 38w1d with my son who was born in November (he was born at 38w5d). I do plan to start trying to conceive again next year and I was wondering what labs are important to have reviewed. I've been a lurker for a while, it's nice to finally make myself known lol

Thanks,
Kerri
