We have MTHFR, and I'm not on aspirin to TTC, but have now miscarried x2 since our son was stillborn.... are / were most of you girls on aspirin TTC? I might just start taking it! OB said to start as soon as BFP, but is there any harm in starting earlier?
Angelbub - I'm so sorry, how disappointing for you. Hoping happens for you really soon. Take care of yourself!
Paula -I don't think there's any harm in taking asprin, but I only have started since bfp, so don't really know. I hope you are well XX
angelbub, I'm sooo sorry
congrats to all those who have got their recently
pa80, my doc's told me to start aspirin as soon as we get our BFP but I've been reading heaps and it doesn't seem to harm starting whilst TTC
As for us, we have decided to just see what happens from now on and then actively start trying from september, as the end of this month marks 6 months since we lost Jake. I actually thought I was pregnant last month as I was late but it was just my body playing tricks on me
Angelbub - so sorry to hear that What a very sad disappointment. I hope your dp has looked after you the past few days.
Sammy999 - had some injections to get pg, but didn't start Clexane until bfp (4w2d). (We discovered I had two copies of MTHFR after I had a dvt last year, but no history of loss.) Coincidentally, I took a long haul flight about 10 days after ovulation so I was on Clexane for part of my tww the month I got my bfp.
PA80 - I had different advice about taking aspirin while ttc, so some months I did and others I didn't. But, my understanding is same as mummytothomas and Poobear - shouldn't do any harm.
Mummytothomas - sorry about your tricksy body. Fingers crossed for you in the run up to September.
Poobear - I can't remember if I've congratulated you on this or the November thread yet, so congratulations on your little boy!!! So exciting.
Tatiana - I'm also heading home later this month (yay)! My specialist suggested wearing Skins compression stockings for the flight, so I've been looking in to those.
Sorry to anyone I've missed, I'm going to try to go to bed. I'm exhausted but also so excited to find out the sex at the morph scan first thing tomorrow morning that I hardly know how I'll fall asleep.
I would recommend getting compression stockings from a medical supplies place instead of a chemist as I found the chemist one far lower quality but similar price.
My dr said no aspirin.... Can't remember why now, something to do with heart or some other thing I have risk factors for- maybe ask your dr?
thanks for the info ladies.
i started the tww today clexane last night omg! hoq stressful! the first needle we tried could not get it to go through the skin horrendous. i ended up a blubbering mess! but second we managed to get it through the skin. any tips on doing we it? we did it on an angle and managed to get it under the skin. i guess will get in to the swing of things...
i was curious to know re the taking clexane and ttc, i have never managed to fall naturally so was curious of the process if you were to ttc naturally and never got pregnant whether you would start clexane at maybe ovulation time.
fs are hard to get to ask all these little niggly questions sometimes...
i have my fingers crossed for everyone good luck.
im hoping 4th cycle lucky for us...
Owww sammy sound awful....hope it gets easier for you.
Just saying hi to everyone, i had my second lot of thrombosis tests today so should get those soon. Im cd 8 and have my last lot of clomid for the month tomorrow then sit back and wait to O again.
Sammy - what a horrible experience! I pinch some fat and dart it in as quickly as I can and then slowly push the clexane in. I try and put it in as straight as possible ie. 90 degrees to my skin. Hope that helps. I'm a diabetic too, so I'm quite used to needles in my belly, but these clexane ones are another story completely!!
bubbanails - GL with catching that lil eggy!
mummy_to_thomas- good to hear you are ready to TTC again soon!
Hi to everyone
with clexane i stretch my belly skin tight ( over a fatty area) and touch lightly to find a not too painful area, then push slowly- i almost cant feel it at all.
it only hurts when i push the fluid in, and if i do it fast it only hurts at the end.
