Well my test results are back some of my antiphospholipids are positive again but not so much so to be of a diagnostic value. The rest were all normal. Thank goodness. Now all I have to worry about is my blood pressure, dilating early, and the second blood sugar test. The rest will all be tests every pregnant woman has and also the ones I normally need.

redrose, what will the docs do about the positive antiphosolipids? Isn't that the test for sticky blood? I'm glad your other labs looked okay and I hope that you have a very healthy and uneventful pregnancy.

Yes, Redrose, are you being treated for the positive APS?  Even if it's a mild positive, it can wreak havoc, especially with a pregnancy.  Make sure you ask what needs to be done for that. 
 
Just looking out for you!

I have been on baby asprin for a very long time because those tests and the lupus anticoglutant occassionally pop up positive. I lost the last pregnancy to a blood clot in the placenta because the OB was an idiot and made me stop my baby asprin. This time around I refused to stop it and now they can see why.

I am doing my best to rest a lot. Right now I have a really bad headache that nothing is getting rid of. I will call if it is still a problem tomorrow.
