I called my ob the other day to ask about baby aspirin and see if there is anything I can do pre-conception to decrease my risk of pre-e... I knew the answer was nothing more than make sure I'm as healthy as possible at this point. What I didn't expect was the nurse telling me that she talked to a doctor and that they don't recommend baby aspirin or anything because the cause of pre-e is unknown so there is no reason to take something that is not guaranteed to help. I love my ob office and want to stick with them but now I'm thinking I want to see a MFM in addition. I don't know if the nurse was just speaking on her own or if she really did talk to someone. there are a lot of doctors at the office so I will never know who it would have been. Even if the MFM just says the same thing I think I will feel better. the MFM that saw me when I was in the hospital is in network and is the chief of the MFM department at our hospital. He's well respected and is taking new patients.
Am I crazy for wanting to see him? Am I going overboard? Also, will seeing him piss off my ob or could it be offensive to them? I was thinking I could just say I thought I was supposed to after the last pregnancy and I had no idea if anyone gets offended.
Re: MFM question
And I agree, if your OB gets upset, there are plenty more out there.
