I had my OB appointment today. He's transfering me to a high risk dr. after getting my latest test results. They found a new blood clot in my last u/s, so now theres 2. My levels of ana are 320, they should be lower than 40. They also did a new test which the results came back as being a sign of high blood pressure in the future or slowing fown of growth in the future, so he's sending me to high risk to do more tests and take it from there. sigh, i dont know why everything has to be so complicated and upsetting.

The baby is measuring the perfect size, the hb was 160, and I'm measuring 23 weeks. ( im only 19weeks and 2 days). I have my 20 week u/s, so we'll see how that goes.

Im back in the mindset that

Caroline - I'm pretty unfamiliar with what your results really mean, and only know what kinds of problems a positive test could indicate.

I've done 3 ANA tests so far, The first one was while I was being induced for my m/c, so a couple of hours befor I delivered him. That result came back at 1;2730, which is crazy high. The second was taken 6 weeks after i delivered, and was no longer pregnant. That one came back at 1;1280 or something. Third one was taken4 weeks ago, so while pregnant, and it came back at 1:320, still high, but alot less than its been. We'll see tomorrow if the second blood clot is still there, they think maybe it was missed on the last u/s.

Each time I'd start feeling excited, I'd step back and think how stupid of me to let myself get excited when something would probably happen... but why shouldn't we get to feel excited? We deserve to feel excited just like every one else. We do know, very well, what could happen, but we should still get to have hope and feel excited.

You go ahead and feel excited - I started my pregnancy as high risk. I had high blood pressure through out and I took blood pressure meds my entire pregnancy. Where did they find a clot? Do you have a clotting disorder? I have one and was on lovenox injections until 36 weeks, then switched to heparin for the last week before we induced. What are ana levels? I've never heard of them before.

I really hope everything is ok for you, when do you go see the high risk dr? I loved my high risk dr, he was just great!

I'm so sorry I know it is scary to get test results and not have all the answers. I Am on and aspirin and Lovenox, maybe the high risk doc will put you on something. I think my MFM doc is very on top of things and I'm sure yours will be too. I had a clot in the beginning of this pregnancy that went away maybe as a result of these meds. I wish you the best. Hugs!!!!
