Not Exactly High Risk

Today I had my appointment with the high risk doctor to discuss the blood clotting disorder. She is comfortable with the baby aspirin that I take daily and does not want to put me on anything stronger, because it could be more harmful than helpful. She also told us that I run a higher risk of developing preeclampsia, because it's far more common in women with blood clotting disorders. Since you can't prevent preeclampsia, they will keep an eye on me and just watch for symptoms so that it can be treated.

While I was hoping that today would be my one and only appointment with Dr. Moore, turns out that she has different plans for me... I'll go back in 8 weeks to do more blood work and she'll compare it to the blood that was taken today. I do have to say that it was a very informative appointment and  Dr. Moore is a pretty awesome lady!


  1. Do you have to keep saying "blood"? I think I'm gonna faint! JK

    I'm so glad you like your Dr., makes life a little easier. Especially since she's gonna keep pokin at ya! Bluhck!
