That will be two girls for me.
I didn't stop my aaprin till 36 weeks with dd1. Suppose I'll just do the same this time. I had her less then 2 weeks later. But I'm just a bit worried if I go over this time, that it's a long time with no thinnners?

hope you are all well
hopefulandwaiting my hospital never told me to stop asprin, i was on it up until i went into labour at 37w + 3d. i had 2nd degree tears and when the lady came to stitch me up she said she couldnt see to stitch me up cos of the bleeding(not haemorraging or anything just a bit more than normal) so they gave me a 2nd dose of the oxytocin injection(the one to help expel the placenta easier) to ease the bleeding so i could be stitched.
i wish they had of told me to stop the asprin so i didnt have the 2nd injection as it made me feel so sick afterwards. i went to see ds in the nursery and vomitted when i arrived.
when i told the lady stitching me that i had been on asprin she looked at me with evil eyes like i should of known to stop taking it.
afm we have a scan on tuesday to see if this pregnancy is viable.

I did end up haemorraging but not sure if it was related to the aspirin as I had a fragmented placenta and part was retained so I think it was more related to that....
Will ask my OB again this time around, but will probably stop at 39 weeks just in case.

I'm a bit paranoid that I won't stop bleeding after I deliver the placenta because of the clexane... Should I be worried?

mrsbeee i didnt take the asprin the day i went into labour either. i use to take mine at 5ish pm so the last one i took was on the monday at 5ish then my waters broke on tuesday at 4.30pm so i hadnt taken the asprin yet and never ende up taking it.
saltygirl i am unsure about the clexane as i swapped from clexane to asprin at 19-20weeks but clexane doesnt thin the blood like asprin does it stops the blood from clotting so it may not be as bad as asprin when in labour. ask your ob/midwife/hospital about when you are going to stop.

Do you mind if I join you ladies. I have lupus and antiphospholipid syndrome. We are trying to conceive our first baby. It is good to read that there are many success stories with people who have conceived with clotting issues. It gives me hope - although I don't know if our issues are related to the clotting issues or a chromosomal thing - had a chemical pregnancy (miscarried at 6 weeks) and I think this current pregnancy will end soon. Had a scan last week at 7w5d and the heartbeat was only 80 and measured only 6mm. I have been cramping and spotting this week. Will have another scan on Wednesday. Sorry I can't answer any questions about stopping clexane and aspirin yet - I haven't gotten that far yet but hope to soon!

Im going to crash as well. Cheeky Monkey - like you I have lupus (just diagnosed in Jan but specialist says he suspects I have had it for 20 years!!) and antiphosphlipid syndrome.
Ive been told to use low dose aspirin (150mg) and clexane from night before FET. The obstetrician fit me in immediately at 5 weeks when I rang in April. He discussed my issues and said I will need to use clexane for the whole pregnancy (not sure about aspirin but I suspect the same story).
When I did miscarry, he called me to tell me how sorry he was and to assure me it was worth continuing and it is in fact possible for me to have a baby - even with all my issues.
Had my FET today - so

I was diagnosed with Lupus & APS at 19 years old (I'm now 36) so I have known about it for awhile. Lupus is a funny disease often hard to diagnose as people often have varying symptoms.
I would suspect that you probably will be on aspirin too for your whole pregnancy. My haematologist and obstetric physician originally said to commence both asprin and clexane at 6 weeks when a viable pregnancy was confirmed and continue until 6 weeks post birth (but that just might be my drs recommendations). As I have now had two early losses they have said to start as soon as I get a BFP. It is funny that both my lupus and APS has been the best it has been for years so technically this should be the perfect time to conceive.
You sound like you have found yourself a lovely ob. My drs have said the same thing to me - particularly my rheumatologist and obstetric physician who have said they have looked after lots of ladies with lupus and have gone on to have beautiful babies. Good luck with FET - I hope you get a sticky one

hi mscurlygirl and cheekymonkey01.
hope you are both well, good luck for sucessful pregnancies.
afm started to have a smallish bleed on monday so freaked out and thought i was having miscarriage #4. had my scan on tuesday as scheduled and bubs is fine nice strong heartbeat of 178bpm and in the uterus so no ectopic.
fs has now put me onto 100mg of asprin yay hopefully i wont have the blood flow issue with this bub that i had with ds.
not sure what hospital to book into, i would like to go to same one i had ds at but we have since moved to a country town and unsure if i should just birth here??? have to get my butt into gear and organise it i guess before i have to have the 12week nt scan.
