    I went to see my gp today to and I'll be getting a full blood check again tomorrow. I thought dr checked coagulation when I was first pregnant but turns out she didn't so she is checking that and thrombosis and some other general stuff? She doesn't want to go testing for anything else yet as I'm seeing the ob again for a follow up visit after 6 weeks so she wants me to wait for his advice.

    The way they test is they will do one blood test looking for the clotting disorder, if it comes back positive they will test again 8-12 weeks later to confirm. My first test came back positive, my second came back negative but my GP explained that APS can be dormant or at such a low level that it would come back negative but would still cause issues. Pregnancy is also a trigger. GP agreed that I could start taking low dose aspirin as it causes no harm and voila, it's seems to have worked so far. Now I'm just waiting on the hospital to see how I will be managed. If you are diagnosed with APS you'll be recommended to start low dose aspirin or warfarin/heparin injections and your pregnancies will be managed as high risk. The good thing is, once managed the success rate for a live birth is great!
    I had bloods done last week and got the results today and everything is perfectly fine. I am happy that I don't have any health issues, but I'm disappointed that I don't have any answers...
