A friend of mine has Thrombophillia and needs to take heparin injections while pregnant. Unfortunately at around 10 weeks she just miscarried. I am wondering has anyone else had experience with this disorder? Were you eventually able to get pregnant and carry to full term? I just feel so awful for her after researching this condition and would like to learn more information to maybe give her hope.
I have a blood clotting disorder and have to be on blood thinners. I have had 3 successful pregnancies and am 10 weeks pregnant now. Did she know she has thrombophilia before getting pregnant. Normally, I start injections while trying to conceive instead of waiting until after I get my bfp. That way, chance of m/c is lower. Not a guarantee but lower.

Expecting our newest baby girl, diagnosed with Down Syndrome with Verifi, October 2014!
I delivered my son t 28wks due to pre-eclampsia. Then years later when I wanted to start conceiving for a second, I did a lot of tests. Found out I had a blood disorder that can cause blood clots during pregnancy. Thus the reason why I got pre-eclampsia with my son I suppose. So to take precaution, my OB put me on low dose aspirin during early part of my second pregnancy. Also had to take heparin shots every day , up to the day I was to deliver. The heparin helped, as I had no complications with my second pregnancy. And my daughter was born full term
So assure your friend, the heparin wil help her. It's a pain in the butt, but it will help her carry her pregnancy.
