    So great that they have given you the scripts already - I would inject straight away too if you can.

    I am worried that they will give the clexane too late - have just begun the aspirin again for the month. They seem a little too relaxed at the john sometimes. Like the fact that they found out about FVL from bloods done around D&C, but didn't put me on anything. They wouldn't release the results to my doctor for 8 weeks. Just as well nothing happened post-op.

    So glad you ladies are on your way. Hoping for some healthy pregnancies for you both.


    Thanks for the tips on injecting. I think I'll have the same fears of hitting an organ - lol! Have been getting some muffin top bits nice and ripe though

    All I need now is a sticky one to do this death-defying stunt.

    Little Ted maybe you can get a gp to give you a script just in case... I've found one that will pretty much give me anything I need as long as I have a good reason. You have a pretty good one xox

    Unfortunately when we found out, she admitted she didn't know much about it and so referred me onto the haemotologist. I'm thankful that she is honest. I can ask her to look into it though - I'm sure there is someone she could ask.

    Edit: How do you know I have a good gp?

    Lol... I meant hope you have a pretty good one.

    That sounded a little creepy and stalkerish. Oops

    Oh my gosh I'm out for a day and all this action happens in here. I see the line Woody, so exciting. I was told to start clexane as soon as I got a bfp by the haematologist at the Royal Women's which is what I did with my ds although I did wait until 12dpo and made sure the line got darker. I got my bfp at 9 dpo though so very early. I take the same brand of baby asprin that Woody does, just make sure you get the ones that are ok on your stomach, enteric coated or something. Those clexane injections do sting but you get used to them very quickly. I found it really hard to stop at 32 weeks because I was so worried about blood clotting in the placenta. But all was fine in the end. Have you don't it yet?

    I did it yesterday cheekime, thinking about it is way worse than doing it. Actually putting the needle in didnt hurt at all. It was the aftermath that stung, and no bruising but I have a scab. How sexy.

    In the last 3 days I've started bruising from the injections. Am I getting worse at doing it or is it working and my blood is getting thinner?!?!

    Congratulations everyone on the bfps!

    Timetoshine - I found the bruising could be worse if I hit a small blood vessel or had a particularly dull needle. Occasionally I'd have a needle so dull that after 2 or 3 jabs I would throw it out and use a new one. I found putting pressure on the injection site for 5 min after can help (like they have you do when you get blood taken). I have heard of some people using ice afterwards and it help to minimise bruising.

    Good luck!
