    Hmm.Ive never heard of this.She was pre-e too with her surviving child.

    It didnt matter though, as the child that prompted the question was unable to make it.I know its mom wants to try again,although her doctors are advising against it

    i was just wondering if you friend ever asked her dr about the anticardiolipin levels- i know the body can do crazy things and just because you have the symptoms doesn't mean you have the disorder but she sounded like a text book case of it, especially since she also had pre-e. this seems to be a contributing factor to pre-e i was told by my dr (they never really say that it "causes" pre-e... pre-e seems to be a big mystery to me that no one really knows a lot about)

    My first two were full term. Third born at 26 weeks due to placenta previa resulting in a placental abruption. My fourth born full term actually when I found out Iwas pregnant I wasn't worried about another preemie because of the reason last time.
