    Arlais I'm sorry that they found this but it's a good thing that they did! (Sorry to you LittleTed too).

    We can be each other's moral support with Clexane... Anything to bring these bubs home!!!

    One other thing that is good even if drs have not mentioned or midwives is to get some good compression stockings to wear when in bed or moving much. Not sure what you do for work but if you have any kind of job where you are restricted to a chair for a lot of the day stockings are good also. Because of my prior stroke and and poor circulation in my feet i will start with them when get bigger.
    Hope you girls get on well with your clexane and that it helps. My sisters friend has 3 beautiful kids thanks to using clexane took her many miscarriages before specialists were able to identify her issues and with the disorder finally identified she has had no more problems carrying her babies and all are healthy kids now

    I hope all will be fine then Arlais. So glad your pregnancies have been going well (despite the illness).

    Were you on a steroid as well as the clexane? When did you start the clexane?


    Yes - we should take out shares in clexane
    How did it go with your first jab munchkin?
    I do have a couple of questions:
    How did she do it? The chemist told me to get air bubble out, pinch my chubs and stick needle in vertically until all gone - yes?
    What do you do with the old needles - do you get a sharps container and take to chemist or something?

    Great to hear Wobbler. I had what I can only describe as a TIA back in Dec last year when about 4.5 weeks pregnant - it really scared me and of course we were out to dinner with a stack of people at the time.

    I started prednisone at the beginning of my IVF cycle (due to testing revealing very high antinuclear antibodies), aspirin started day after transfer, then clexane added when I got my BFP. I weaned off the steroid around 12 weeks, but will continue with clexane and aspirin to 36 weeks.

    With the injections I was told not to get rid of the air bubble (says this in leaflet as well). DH pinches up a flabby bit and puts the needle straight in, so 90 degree right angle to my body;
    )
    )

    My fertility clinic gave me a sharps container and I'll take it to a chemist when it's full. Will probably have to buy a new sharps container next time though (the last full one I took back to the clinic)

    Thank you so much Arlais.
    I asked about the steroid, but fs said it should be fine without it. My antibodies are lower than yours Arlais, (640) so I'm hoping he is right. Though I'm thinking of taking the clexane from after o instead to try and compensate for no steroids a little. I did check with him and he didn't say no.

    Wow - so the chemist told me the opposite about the bubble and the direction! - might see if my doctor can help clarify for me.

    LittleTed, my midwife said basically the same as what Arlais said... Apart from the air bubble. Middy said that lots of people say to leave it but she said what's the point in injecting air!? If it's teeny tiny, then I'll leave it but if it's noticeable she said to get rid of it...

    And she said to go straight in I think, not on any angles or anything.

    I've only had one at the moment, the one the middy did yesterday. Will get DH to do tonight's one. I have a slight bruise from where she did it yesterday, May or may not get darker, I'm not to concerned about that at this point though...

    I'm very relieved they've picked it up! I feel so fortunate having all the testing I've had so far. If it wasn't for going through IVF I may have had years of heartache losing babies early and not knowing why. And really at the end of the day, it's a very easy condition to manage, so I'm grateful for that

    leave air bubble in clexane it is to make sure it all goes in and doesn't dribble back out of skin. Hold up skin and find some fat and just jab in, NEVER rub over the area after as that causes bruising. Am always educating students how to do them correctly as the older nurses refuse to follow new knowledge and continue to do them wrong patients always let me give injections and very rarely have caused bruising with any. When tummy gets too big can always inject into thighs i do it alot at work as elderly people dont have alot of fatty tissue on the tummy. Also dont keep injecting the same area as can build up a toughened area space out the sides of belly or leg being injected. You girls are so brave and doing so well and atleast after all this will get to hold your beautiful babies.
