    When on clexane it is necessary to have regular scans as bleeds can occur internally (ie. aren't showing themselves externally - coming out). Internal bleeds can get large enough to end a pregnancy.
    Is your scan on Monday a regular one or did they book it for you because you are spotting? How many days wait was it from notifying them to your scan? They really shouldn't be leaving it too long in between as your ob should be able to adjust your protocol - or at least try if the pregnancy is being threatened.

    In saying all that for our last pregnancy I had two spotting type bleeds in the first trimester that went on for weeks and they were fine - I knew they were there because they were showing themselves externally but my ob wanted me scanned as soon as possible to know what was going on.
    In second trimester I went for a regular scan (I had lots to monitor blood flow and bleeding) and there was a large internal bleed. He had to change meds for a time and that saved the pregnancy.

    Hope it's just a little spotting for you and that your bub gets here in due time nice and safe x. Just make sure you are getting regular scans whilst on the clexane.
    im having the scan to make sure pregnancy is viable my ob went on holidays and is back Monday this week. I have been to hospital 4 times this week because I'm so worried and they have not done anything no checks they just told me that there is nothing they can do and to basically get over it.

    i went yesterday and explained that I have noticed I don't bleed at all overnight and in got to the toilet during the night. I have noticed that the bleeding start about an hr or 2 after I have my injection in the am it is never enough to go onto a pad it's just there when I go to the toilet an whipe. The hospital doctor said that it could be coming from my injection because it's a blood thinner.

    Yes - clexane is an anticoagulant and your pregnancy should be monitored closely whilst you are on it because as I said before - you could be bleeding internally and not be aware. I had this happen and if it hadn't been for a routine, fortnightly check because it was high risk and I was the meds then I would have lost the baby and potentially kept on bleeding. It doesn't always present on the outside. Once the ED know that you are on clexane they should give you an ultrasound to see where it is coming from even if it is to give you peace of mind. They are virtually unaccountable these days if something happens to the baby or yourself - and the thing is is that you can't bring either back to life and it is heartbreaking to get so far and have to try again.

    Hope you can increase the amount of care you are having with your ob as they return.

    PGD can be expensive. It was $4k 'per batch' for us and our batch consisted of 14 embryos which we got through several IVF rounds.

    What they do is make embryos and grow them until day 3 when they are about 8 cells in size. Then they take one of the cells out using a needle. The cell is then looked to see what the chromosomes are like and then a report is generated giving a run down of the embryo. Normal embryos are used for transfer and abnormal ones are discarded.

    Big hugs Rachelle xx
    I don't think you can ever get 'used to' losses no matter how many someone experiences.

    With your history I would strongly encourage you to seek out an OB who specialises in infertility. If you find the right one They are experienced and proactive enough to help find out the cause for your losses and in turn provide preventative protocols to help you avoid further losses.

    I understand your frustrations and grief - it's a horrible place to be. Until your ready to take the next step take care of you x

    I'm so sorry to hear of your loss Rachelle. Don't lose your faith - it is one hell of a ride though.

    Have you talked to the ladies on the nk cells thread - immunity issues are talked about there and many are undergoing IVF for various reasons also. I'm not sure where you're located but they will be able to give you the names of some great specialists. Don't forget that you can start the clexane after ovulation or before you get your bfp - it sounds as though you might need further tests and a different protocol - or at least this one added to before proceeding. Be kind to yourself, big hugs x.

    Hi. I'm so sorry to read you've experienced another loss. I'd strongly encourage you to see a specialist who has experience in recurrent miscarriage. Dr Matthias is Sydney is the best, without a doubt. I've met several women (though an infertility support group I'm in) who'd had so many miscarriages (some into the teens and twenties- can't imagine it) and they now have babies after diagnosis and treatment from him. He has quite a wait (6-8 weeks) for an appointment. I'd also encourage you to try and find the book Is Your Body Baby Friendly by Dr Alan Beer. Lots of info on recurrent pregnancy loss.
    Also look at dr Braverman and Dr Sher's websites. They are in the USA and specialise in this field. Their results are incredible. You can ask questions on their blogs and they respond personally. Im sure you need to take some time to heal from what you are going through but when you're ready there are heaps of resources to use that might help this from happening again. All the best.

    THe book I mentioned above has sections on prothrombin mutation and also miscarriages caused by chromosomal abnormalities. If you want to, PM me your email address and I'll take pics of the relevant pages and send them through. Might be some valuable info for you?
