Some of you may know me from ttcal board, but for those of you that dont I would like to share my story. I am 29 and dh is 32. We have been ttc for 6 years now. We fell pregnant twice and one was a mc around 6 weeks and the other was a blighted ovum around 8 weeks. Then in Oct. 2006 we got our bfp with our dd Abby. She was perfectly healthy, measuring just right, strong heartbeat at 22 weeks. I even got to feel her kick and punch. Dh got to feel one strong kick. I went back in to my 25 week check up and we heard the heartbeat but it took a while for them to find it. Finally at 27w3d we got the words we hope we will never hear again "there is no heartbeat" and I gave birth to our silent, beautiful little girl 2 days later on April 15th, 2007. 6 weeks later we found out that she died because of my blood clotting disorders. Since then we had to take the first two months off from ttc. So this is the 10th month of ttc and today we just got our bfp!

I am high risk because I am type 1 diabetic, found out that I have 2 blood clotting disorders, and also I have pcos. I am so extremely scared to even make this post, but I wanted to get to know you girls better and to have someone that understands the fear that comes with seeing those 2 beautiful lines.

Oh Rhonda, I am so thrilled for you. I understand that you must be nervous. Since they know you have these issues will they be putting you on any medication or following your progress differently? I will pray long and hard every night that you get to bring home a crying baby in 9 months! You deserve this so much. I keep thinking about that post you made a while back about standing in line, waiting your turn patiently. I truly hope this time you make it to the front of the line to take home your little blessing.

I have been on prenatals and baby aspirin since we found out about the disorders. That same month they added 5mg of folic acid to my daily meds. Now I will be calling in Monday morning and finding out when I should start taking Lovenox. I was told that I will take it right away, so I am really hoping to get in soon enough and get started on these shots. I am not happy about taking more shots but I will do whatever it takes to bring this baby home with me the first part of December. I am so glad that you remember that post. It was a very down time for me. And now its my turn to take the prize home. Just like the rest of the girls here.

I will be on the phone first thing Monday morning. I have several appointments to set up. I will need to see my hematologist, endocrinologist, and my high risk ob/gyn. I am super excited and nervous all at the same time. I think my edd is Dec. 16th if I am right about when i "think" I o'd. I am scared about taking the shots of Lovenox but I will gladly do whatever it takes to bring this baby home.

congrats on your pregnancy!
it is good that they have found your clotting disorders. i too am on a daily baby aspirin & i take 80mg lovenox injections once a day (i don't particularly like it, but it is so worth it, & i have a little less bruising than when i was taking shots of heparin). i had four first trimester miscarriages & with this 'cocktail' of medicine i have made it to 21 weeks!

praying for you to have a happy & healthy pregnancy!

I remember you too. I was following your progress through your pregnancy too. I know that it was just a year ago when I first met you at pg. loss board. I think I am only about 4 weeks. I know it is still very early. I tested on what I thought was 10dpo and it was bfn. I tested again on 12dpo and bfp. I will find out more at my upcoming appointments and will be sure to let you girls know.

How often do you get your blood tested? Have you been taking the same amount all pregnancy along? What week did you start taking it? I am not getting in to see my dr. until the 17th, so I am a little afraid that is too long, should I demand a sooner date? I just don't know if he will do anything until the ob/gyn gives me a edd, and I don't see him until the 16th. Do you also take extra folic? Sorry I have so many questions.
