Did you change anything in your subsequent pregnancies?

Has anyone on here had a successful 2nd pregnancy without changing anything?  (Without having underlying conditions looked up, and without taking aspirin, etc..?)  My dr doesn't seem keen on the idea of my having the underlying condition tests done-I'm wondering if anyone has had success without it.  I know the stats are about a 1/3 chance of getting HELLP again in the future..I wonder if these stats are based on ppl that didn't change anything with their pregnancies or not.

I didn't take anything nor had any tests done to see if I had something else related to HELLP when I got pregnant with my 2nd and 3rd.

I didn't really do anything different, and my pregnancy with DD was full-term with no complications. I wish the same for you.

i did get the testing done, on my request, found out i had factor 5 and MTHR factor... in my second pregnancy i was considered high risk so had to see a perinatologist every month, got blood drawn, etc...   i also had to give myself injections every day during my second pregnancy and take aspirin.  i didnt mind at all, i just wanted a healthy baby and to be healthy myself.   GL to you-

I'm having a relatively successful pregnancy this time around. I'll be 30 weeks tomorrow. My bp has been normal and my 28-week blood work didn't come back weird. My perinatologist thinks I'm not at risk for having HELLP again. Actually, the only reason I see one at all is because I have a single umbilical artery which can cause IUGR. My son is measuring large, though. I'm not currently on any medications. Actually, they are thinking I'm a good candidate for a VBAC. I'm hoping to have a happy, successful birth story for y'all in about 8-10 weeks!
