Good luck! Fingers crossed for you xo
About the clexane and taking it after first scan... Why is that? Just because I haven't had an early scan with good news since I lost my baby at 20 weeks 2 years ago.
I've also got steroids to take too, I don't want to start too early but I also don't want it to be too late :/
Hope you get in real quick woody - have you called?
She gave me all my scripts to fill once I got a bfp so I just booked my gp for tomorrow to show me how but now I remember my friends boyfriend uses it for clots in his legs so she will show me tonight what to do
Congrats! I just got my bfp yesterday too! Been to the gp today for bloods. I actually had to start clexane from cd 14, so before a bfp. It seems every doc is different but from what I have read waiting until 6-7 weeks for a viability scan is too late. I would start injecting today, especially if your doc already gave you the scripts. I find it pretty easy, I ice the area for about 5 mins before hand then pinch a big section of stomach and put the needle straight in. Inject the liquid slowly then take out the needle. Don't rub the area afterwards. I have had barely any pain or bruising using this method so hope it works for you too
Awesome thanks timetoshine. So jab the whole length in before pushing the liquid out? I am such a wimp. I thought it would be easy till I actually took them out of the box and they look so.... Big
So there's no way that i will hit an organ right? Lol...
Yep the whole length straight in. Don't do it on an angle. Try and make sure to grab a nice fatty bit. I was so scared for the first one but I really don't care now! Oh and also make sure you change where you inject each day and don't inject into a bruised area
Ok thank you. Finally a use for my fatty bits
