I am just beginning the journey of searching for answers and am hoping for some advice. I am 27 years old and I have three healthy children. I have lost three to miscarriage, 2 early, and the most recent was my son at 17.5 weeks. I had early onset pre-eclampsia with two of the children, and with the other one my blood pressure was perfect until 37 weeks where it suddenly shot through the roof and the induced me that day. My children were also all very small. My first was 4.0 lbs full term, and the other 2 were 5lb 6oz. I have struggled with daily headaches for the past two years but I assumed the were tension headaches. Oh, and the baby I just lost had an extremely small placenta. The paperwork says it was 2x3 cm but I almost feel like that must be a mistake. I asked the ob that I saw in the ER to check for a clotting disorder and he ordered an antiphospholipid antibody panel and they only drew 2 vials of blood. The stories I have read on here talk about 8-10 vials. Did he only do one test? I'm wondering if this is negative, should I request more testing? I haven't noticed other symptoms but I don't want to ignore this if it may i fact be something.
