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.

Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.

My sister has a blood clotting disorder and lupus and was able to get pregnant via IVF and carry her baby to term. My nephew is 5 months old now and is a happy, healthy little guy.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

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.
