I went to go see the hematologist today per OBs order. I told him what my RE said and he was shocked she was being so passive. He said he'd rather be aggressive then passive. Fine with me! Except, he put me on lovenox. He said him and his wife struggled many years with infertility and did many treatments of IVF, so he understands how heartbreaking it can be.

Yay!! I am glad you got a doctor that will be on things! Some of the best doctors are ones that have gone through some of our experiences. I hate that anyone has to endure it period, but I always feel better when my doctor has had to walk in my shoes.

I'm glad he understands the pain of infertility and is willing to do more for you because of it. (Though, of course, I hate that he HAD to know the pain...)

It is good to be seen by someone who has been there. I wanted to become a fertility specialist until I suffered 4 losses. I realized I could never be on the end where I had to tell my patients heartbreaking news.

I've been taking lovenox for about 6 weeks now. have you ever had to do injections? If you have any questions, I'm happy to help. I also did heparin injections for a while.

It is nice that he's walked in the shoes and gets it!

No I've never done injections and am really scared to start them.

*hugs*

Be sure to have a nurse or your doctor show you how to do them in the office.

I don't know if you're slender or if you have some fatty tissue on your belly. I'm slender, but many pregnancies have made my tummy a bit flabby... which works out. I am comfortable with my subcutaneous tissue and don't have to pinch the skin for my injections. I find that pinching makes it more painful and the bruising worse.

Ice the area for a few minutes. Wipe with an alcohol swab. Push the air our of the syringe while the alcohol dries. You want it dry or it will burn. It will depend on your comfort if you prefer to jab the needle in or if you want to insert it slowly. I do it slowly. Push the plunger slowly. If you push it too fast, you may get knots. After the syringe is empty, remove it and do not rub the injection site.

Everyone does shots differently. These are steps that help me. I don't ice anymore, personally. I find it doesn't make a big difference.

You'll be fine.
