    So as a refresher I have hyperhomocystemia but is unexplained as I do not have any other blood issues. I previously had a DVT and PE in December 2008. During my first pregnancy I had clexane injections from 5.5 weeks right through until 6 weeks post partum.

    I am currently seeing an FS and doing an FSH cycle. I'm already taking high dose folic acid but must remember to get to the chemist this week to get all the other vitamins.

    Hi Windupbird Not sure if you remember me (as sammy87) but we were pregnant at the same time last time. My DS was born Jan 2012. Congrats on your pregnancy!!
    Hi Lovemonkey,

    Of course I remember you! (Have had a BH hiatus.) Good luck with TTC. Have my fingers crossed for you. We were so surprised after the months of Clomid and finally an injection cycle resulting in our DD, that after just one period and while still co-sleeping and around the clock bf'ing to get a bfp.

    Anyway - good luck to you.

    And - baby dust to the other ladies ttc'ing on the thread. Hope you get your bfps very soon.

    Xoxo


    DD Dec 2011, DS July 2013!

    Hi ladies, hope I can join in here. Have just been diagnosed with compound heterozygous mthfr amongst other things and will be on clexane from ovulation onwards. Have had 2 mc and a chem in the last year and happy to finally have some answers and start to ttc again! This is my first cycle with any meds other than progesterone and I'm a bit apprehensive about it all

    Hi everyone, I'm wondering if any of you could tell me specifically which blood tests u had to find out you had a blood clotting disorder?

    What about things like MTHFR & factor v etc? Did you have an abnormal result in another test that led them to test for these? Or can you still have MTHFR & factor v etc even if your other tests are normal?

    Did you have any symptoms before finding out you had a blood clotting problem?

    Any information you can give me is appreciated, thanks!

    Welcome timetoshare, fingers crossed the meds make a difference.

    I found out I had factor 5 after my second miscarriage and the hospital agreed to standard blood tests that are done after recurrent miscarriage. I went through a recurrent miscarriage clinic at the Royal Women's. no symptoms and a healthy pregnancy 13 years ago when I didn't even know I had it. My sister got tested after I found out I had it and she does as well but has had 2 kids with no issues.

    How are you Woody? What's the plan for this month. I'm thinking every 2 days all month long and every day for 3 days when I get a positive opk. Considering preseed too as this has helped me get utd twice!

    We had a similar experience as pp. After 3 children and no problems, we mc twice and pushed for testing - Baby came back as being fine. It's just a regular blood test at pathology but it does need to be marked on the form. I don't know why they don't do regular screening for blood clotting disorders. Hope you find some answers.

    Fingers crossed, I'm already getting over ttc. I'll start testing about the same time, I think I'll be 9dpo by then. It seems like everyone around me falls pregnant with little effort and for me it's only the first step with all the worries of a pregnancy actually working.

    Hey everyone, hope you don't mind my joining in. I'm new to the forums and just starting ttc for the first time. I was diagnosed Factor V Leiden a few years back, no complications so far (it was picked up when my mum had multiple PEs). My doctor basically wants to just see how we go, and then try Clexane if there's problems. I try to think positive as mum had 3 easily conceived healthy pregnancies without even knowing about the disorder (although she did have a PE while preggers with me, misdiagnosed as a collapsed lung!).

    It's nice to see I'm not alone The last thing we need ttc is something extra to worry about, huh?

    Welcome JTC. My sister and I both have factor v and I had my ds13 without even knowing and my sister had two healthy pregnancies and babies without even knowing. After my two missed miscarriages I did allot if research and decided on clexane in the end but did look into other natural ways to promote blood flow which is what it's all about. Have you considered baby asprin? It's over the counter and can be taken the entire pregnancy. Other things to consider when pregnant is staying active and healthy, eating well and maybe even acupuncture which promotes blood flow. Good luck and I hope your ttc journey is a short one
