My best friend has that condition and had multiple miscarriages around the 9 - 11 week time period because of it. I'll have to ask her when they started her on medication for her successful pregnancies. Have they tested you for clotting disorders?
100 is a great number! I'm so glad that is looking good.

I wanted to echo Leanne- I don't have a clotting disorder, but when I first met with my RE over the summer, as he was giving an overview of all the possible issues/treatments, he said that if lovenox was necessary, it's something that he usually starts around 7-8 weeks. An MFM specialist told me something similar, too. Everyone is different, of course. Lovenox is not something I have any experience with, and I'm sorry I don't remember your full history. But there is a good chance that everything will be okay, even if you do need lovenox.

My fingers, toes, arms, and legs are all crossed for you! Stay strong, mama!
