They did try the aspirin route with me with our second pregnancy but that didn't work so was told it would be injections, unfortunately they didn't keep me on long enough it would seem. I don't like needles either so I have to have someone else do it for me as I can't watch or anything. My belly was so bruised and so gross last time. It's interesting that there are so many different reasons for the doctors putting us on clexane. Can I ask why they have said you have to go on it?
    I need to go on Clexane due to High NK Killer cells. I have seen that others are also on Prednisone as well but maybe my doctor is wanting to see if Clexane will be enough before we do a double set of treatment. Firstly, though, my mission is to get some beautiful embies. Then I can concentrate on keeping them sticky

    After we fell pregnant last time (after a previous late miscarriage) we only told very few people (even though my inlaws took it upon themselves to let all of my SILs know!) and only told them as we were staying with them and eating with them. So it was our parents and one lot of friends and that was it. But it still felt awkward as we weren't after a congratulations, but just letting them know for practicalities sake.

    Just wondering what the rest of you would say compared to how you feel on the inside after your losses.
    This is a really sensitive one but ultimately the people that love you and are close to you would surely want to know how you really feel and what you need from them. They will be scared to upset you and will want to know how to be supportive in the right way for you. My experience has taught me that most people can't know how to handle this if they have not experienced this type of devastating loss themselves. The loss of a pregancy is so huge and we all have such different layers of grief within this. I suppose your friends and family are excited for you when you become pregant because they know you want it so much. What they probably can't grasp is all the fear that goes around a pregancy once you have gone through loss and that perhaps you are scared that you won't go to full term again. Somehow if you have the strength, in a quiet moment, let them know what you need from them, so they can give it to you. I have had to do that with my friends and it has really helped the situation alot - both for me and for them. I hope this helps a little or resonates with you in some way.

    Sending you positive thoughts

    Thank you. It's good to nut this one out with someone. I think you hit the nail on the head with suggesting that I let them know what I need from them - just realism I think. Not too excited, but not too cautious either. But hope, hope is good

    I'll tell my best friend cause we have a business together and my next door neighbour cause she is like my mum but thats it i think. They way i feel about getting a bfp is a bit confusing lately. I think i'll be like...ok awesome. Now lets start injections and prepare for the worst. Horrible feeling but after 4 m/c's cant help it.
    Little Ted it took me 3 months to get into maternal foetal medical unit. I had a m/c then while waiting to get in got another bfp. I went to clinic app and they did ultrasound at 9 weeks and no heartbeat . It stopped at 7 wks 5 days.
    I then spent 4 days in hospital having m/c cause they wanted me to take tablets but ended up having d&c. Worst experience but awesome nurses.

    Okay, so if I get BFP next week I will scream until someone gives me some meds.
    I had first mc last year, passed the baby but had retained placenta and pph, so they gave me the tablets first which just resulted cramping my bowels, not uterus. So after having a big blood loss was even more drained! Then had D&C - it can be such a drawn out process. Went straight to D&C this time after what happened previously and it being my second pph and retained placenta. Didn't want to bleed out at home with the kids.
    Yes, I've found the midwives to be great there, even though they are understaffed. I am worried that no one will see me in time and the same thing will happen.

    Im worried they wont get me in in time for needles. Dr said he needs me in there the next day after bfp but he also said he would call me to tell me if i should be on aspirin now due to this thing in my brain and i havent heard...wish i could get excited over ttc but i'm kinda over it. My lg will be 6 in April too so gap is getting bigger.

    Not really sure how I am feeling at the moment. My af is not due for another week yet but the last couple of days I have been getting signs that it is on its way probably in the next day or so. I am happy if that is the case so that we can start trying again, but at the same time I am terrified of starting again. I am also worried about the fact that I don't seem to have a regular cycle so it is going to make it difficult to work out when to try if it is not regular. Before the last pregnancy I had started to have pretty regular cycles, only a day or two difference (which was great seeing as my cycles are normally all over the place). I was hoping that it wouldn't take too long to fall pregnant again but now I think it is going to take a while again.

    How is everyone else doing?

    Hi everyone

    I know what you mean about tracking cycles when they are so irregular.

    It is CD29 here, but don't think I o'd until CD23/24 so implantation (if it happens) would be in next day or two and will take testing a little more seriously on the weekend!

    Going to grab some aspirin tonight though just to have it ready if needed.

    mumofprincess - do you start your clexane straight away or after heartbeat? It sounds like you need to be on it straight away. What is in your head?

    Just thought I'd throw this one out there...

    When I had appt at the hospital last week they said that they would monitor me more closely in early pregnancy by doing more scans.
    I am still bewuffled as to how this would help one of my pregnancies - ideas???

    I don't see how them looking at a pregnancy - healthy or not, will prevent anything going wrong. I can see however, taking bloods, testing progesterone and thickness of blood, etc. could.

    If they did notice a clot in the placenta or cord, is there anything they can do?

    Hi Little Ted, I've been through 3 miscarriages and now pregnant with number 4 and yes with this one they did scan almost every week up to 12 weeks and HCG and progesterone testing up to 8 weeks but to me still does not make sense as there is unfortunately nothing anyone can really do if a pregnancy is going to end! You would have to be on progesterone medication or blood thinning from the start of the pregnancy for it to help. Are you seeing a fertility specialist who would be able to have you on all the necessary mediation from the very start of the day you find out your pregnant?
