I had one healthy uncomplicated pg and recieved a baby boy 7 years ago. Since then I have had 2 mc and have been thru multiple infertility treatments. We stopped all the meds and also stopped really trying to concieve a year ago August. So image our surprize when I found out we were pg 3 weeks ago. We immediately test for APS and found out that my levels were elevated so I have started a baby asprin daily. I am also taken progesterone supplements. my last two mc's were at 7.5 weeks. If we make it past christmas then that will be the longest sinceour 1st pg. I am just wondering does anyone else have APS and any suggestions. Thanks....

While I don't have that syndrome a few people here have blood clotting problems.

I hope and pray this is your lucky pregnancy now that you know what the might be.

Hi there- I'm a lurker, saw your post and thought I would chime in. I have a 10-year-old boy, had a miscarriage, and got pregnant from IUI. I also have APS. With my elevated levels and history of stroke, I take a baby aspirin and Lovenox injections (blood thinner) every day. I'm currently at 8 weeks. One of the best suggestions my OB told me so far was not to stay sedentary. Get up, be safely active. He said it helps keeps more clots from forming and is ultimately good for you UNLESS you have specific reasons that you are not allowed to be active. Talk to your doctor and see what he/she says.

Drink lots of water and take good care of you. Good Luck!!!!!
