    That so good. Good luck with your app.

    AFM- I'm ok. Trying not to symptom spot at 7dpo which is difficult. I have more feelings this time but worry that it's all in my head. Had 100 Clomid plus Ovidrell and the glorious Progestrone pessaries. So fx this combo works for us :-)

    Thanks for checking in Arlais!
    All was good. He was happy to see us, went back over Skye's results and said that there was something else found in my blood. I can't remember the full name, but again, he said it was nothing serious, and only a super small amount that probably wasn't the cause of death. Anyways, because of this factor, and the very small amount of anti nuclear antibodies, he suggested clexane injections. Basically he was saying that there's every chance I could carry on taking the baby aspirin, and have no issues, and if I just had one of these issues, (not that you can really cause it an issue coz I was such small amounts recorded on the tests...) he would be fine with just baby aspirin.... But with both, to go above and beyond to being this baby home, clexane would be an option. In other words, I don't need it, but just in case.
    He also spoke about close monitoring from end of first trimester, and if I get to 30 weeks, I get a bronze medal, 32, silver, and 34 gold. And that there's no way he'd allow me to go full term...
    It was really good that he stuck to everything he said he would next time we fell pregnant. Reassuring. He also said, a number of times, I will do anything and everything I can to keep this baby with us....
    The only bummer thing was that his measurements put us back a couple of days, my calculations had us at 06/04, scan on Saturday was 05/04 but he's saying 07/04. In the grand scheme of things, what's a day or two, especially as I'll be induced in March anyways...

    Anyways, reason for my post, has anyone in here been on Clexane injections? Just wanting to hear others experience so we can decide wjat to do or if theres any cons, etc. If we decide to go that path, he suggested carrying on with baby aspirin until about 15 weeks, then injections after that to whenever I want to stop or up until the end...

    Sorry for the long post!

    You sound like you have a lovely OB munchkin I know you'll go early, but we're due on the same day!

    I have quite high antinuclear antibodies, so I am on baby aspirin and daily clexane injections. I will be on aspirin until 36 weeks, but get to come off the clexane around 14 weeks. For me it's basically just getting past that risky stage of implantation and allowing the placenta to develop. Without the meds my body would identify the baby as something foreign and reject it - much like an organ transplant. I'm also on a steroid, prednisone, which suppresses my immune system - which I'll start weaning off at 12 weeks.

    I'm not going to lie to you, the injections do hurt. The needles aren't long, but they're quite wide and some can be rather blunt. The clexane comes in pre-filled syringes so you just have to inject it into a fatty bit on your belly. With the combination of aspirin (a blood thinner) and clexane (an anticoagulant) you will more than likely get some pretty full on bruising. My poor belly looks like I'm part dalmatian!

    Some days I barely feel it, others I'm almost crying. The needle itself usually doesn't hurt too much, but the liquid going in can give a horrible burning sensation, especially if you inject too fast. I always ice the area for a minute or two before and my DH does the actual jab for me. I've always hated needles, but anything I can do to give this bub the best chance I would do a thousand times over. I'm actually a little afraid of going off the meds as everything has been going so well so far.

    If you want to ask anything else munchkin you're always free to PM me

    Just be careful with Google munchkin - there's some really scary stuff and it gave me plenty of anxiety! There's a huge variation in dosage and time women are on the clexane for. I was initially concerned I would need to be on it for the entire pregnancy, but I have since learned that's usually for ladies who have a prior clotting disorder and it's more about keeping them safe than bubs.

    Happy Friday everyone
