Worried. (More of a vent, seeking advice)

So here's my story. I have a history of subchorionic hemorrhages, two resulted in first trimester miscarriages , I am currently 28w6d with my fifth pregnancy. My mom also had a history of subchorionic hemorrhages. One resulted in a loss at 23w and then the premature delivery of my sister and I. In her last pregnancy with my brother, she had bleeding until 16 weeks, they didn't test but put her on Lovenox and the issue resolved. After pregncy with twins (sister and I) they teste her and she tested positive for two different clotting issues but keep in mind this was 25+ yrs ago.

Needless to say, I asked to have blood panels done, and they did but my doctor is refusing to test me for pregnancy inducted protein S and C deficiency. What would you do?? Sorry so long just wanted to s plain thoroughly , my concern

Thanks for reading

  • Ask again explaining your worries and if he do not do it look for a different doctor and see if you have better luck. Hope you have a healthy pregnancy with this one.

  • Is it just a simple blood test? Find another doctor. Tell the doctor if they wont order the test you will switch doctors.

  • Definitely seek a second opinion. I wouldn't want a doctor who didn't listen to my (perfectly reasonable) concerns.
