Hi there! Are you normally on Coumadin for the blood clots?
I normally take Coumadin because I have a mechanical aortic valve. I switched to Lovenox when we decided to try to get pregnant. I have been doing the injections twice a day for several months while TTC. They haven't been bad! My doctors are only planning on keeping the Lovenox for the first trimester and then going back on Coumadin for the remainder of the pregnancy. We will switch back to the shots at the very end in order to prepare for the C-section.
I am currently 5 weeks pregnant. I will have another planned C-Section (I wasn't on blood thinners with my first child).
We are very similar in our situations. I don't want to live my life in fear either. It is very risky but I have great doctors and I know miracles happen every day so I am really counting on that to pull me through this!
Best of luck with your decisions. I know they are very difficult.
