Hi Ladies,

Forgive the intrusion:

Cherikey: without a doubt take the ecotrin :) My 4 miscarriages were due to baba not getting blood flow at all and I would always listen to my gynae.

Leabella - My first born is a clexane miracle, just give you an idea of how much clexane costs per month - R 2200 in 2010, so ask your FS to write you letters of motivation, your blood tests, etc because I had hell getting my medical aid to approve on chronic and otherwise it kills your medical savings.

keep well preggy fairies!

4 m/c's: 1 2003; Sept 2009 twins; Dec 2009; May 2010.

April 20 2011 c-section - Rowan 3.18kg (My Clexane miracle)
14 July 2012 c-section - Gemma 2.9kg (My total surprise miracle)

Hi Ladies

Pamela – glad you are keeping positive even though it must be so hard. Strongs xxx

Anthea – I’m not really wearing maternity clothes yet but I did buy some comfortable pants (stretchable) because I can’t button any of my pants except for one :blush: . Enjoy your scan it’s so nice to see your little one for the first time!

Cherikey – I think the tough part about facebook is “untelling” everyone so I can understand your concern. Some people didn’t get the news about my MC and just before my supposed due date someone commented on one of my statuses asking how the pregnancy is going :huh: . So yes it can get a bit awkward. About the blood thinners: maybe you should do some research about the pros and cons. Maybe your doctor thought the risk of your blood clotting is more dangerous than the pills?

Leabella – Thank you, are you showing yet? My DH has been very sweet and cooked almost every night for the last month but I think the difference is I don’t have other children yet so if I decide to go to bed at 18:00 it doesn’t really make a difference to anyone :dry: , I can just quietly disappear. When I was about 7 weeks I woke up one morning with very little MS and soon after DH realised that he got it for the day! After that he was VERY sympathetic towards me :P .

Hi Cherikey

Thanks so much hey! Hopefully not much longer...

Although i dont have personal experience to talk from i would have to agree with Laebella too. A doc would not prescribe something if it was not safe, at least in his opinion - even if the package might state otherwise... Trust your gut though - if you feel uneasy rather get a second opinion! All the best with the decision you have to make!!

@Laebella - shame DH tries but he does then take over with our LG, that way i can be green in peace! Definitely something i prefer hey - even if we might not get much sympathy! All my DH says is "God created you woman stronger than men - we would never be able to handle all the kak that goes with a pregnancy" :lol: :lol: At least he is man enough to admit it!!

Hello everyone,

Snoekie, nice to hear from you...

Anthea08, good luck with the MS. I am also suffering lately. Only felt horrible in the afternoons but the past few mornings I suffered a lot and was late from work!!! Don't know about you but I am not getting much sympathy at home DH don't sympathise but takes over and care for our LG when I am green...

tanyalourens, welcome and dont feel alone I am 38 years old... I am sure your 16 year old is going to loving playing and helping with the new baby...

bondelq, pretty bump!!!

cherikey, I am not a medical practitioner but I can rely my story to you. I had thrombosis in 2004. I was involved in a serious car accident in 2001 and the damage to my right leg, the docters think caused the thrombosis 3 years later. When I found out I was pregnant in 2008 my gynea advised that I take Ecotrin. I was just as concerned but I read up and found out that when woman have two or more miscarriges they are put on blood thinners on their next pregnancy and studies show it made a huge difference as it ensured beter blood flow to the uterus. This time round I fell pregnant under the supervision of a FS and when he informed me of my positive result on my pregnancy test he immediatly prescribed Ecotrin (x1 a day). I am currently drinking Ecotrin and will do so through my entire pregnancy but when I reach 12w I will also start injecting myself daily with Clycesine (spelling???) in my stomach to assist in keeping my blood thin to ensure that the increasing hormones does not clot my blood to cause any form of thrombosis again. When you have any form of operation (even a ceaserian) you will receive an injection in your stomach the next day to prevent blood clotting - that would be Clycesine. Listen to your docter, if you do not trust him obtain a second opinion quickly. On this same forum with my previous pregnancy I read about woman taking Ecotrin prescribed by their gyneas. Why did your Dr prescribe the blood thinner and what blood thinner did he prescribe?

To all the other ladies... it is almost weekend!!!!

Hang in there Anthea, i'm sure there aren't too many more weeks of MS left... Good Luck for your scan, hope all goes well. Yes, i too am hoping for a much healthier pregnancy... Gynae has already put me on blood thinners, the box said not safe in first tri-mester so i've kinda been putting off taking them just in case... I know he prescribed them but still???

Hi Bondelq... I also like your way of thinking, i think i'm just not brave enough to announce if things go wrong. Our family and very close friends know, but i was more referring to announcing it on FB for example. Nice bump by the way...

What's your opinions ladies:
Gynae has put me on blood thinners, the box/pamphlet said not safe in first tri-mester so i've kinda been putting off taking them just in case... I know he prescribed them but still??? He said i should take them to ensure a healthy blood flood to uterus etc, but am worried... Should i just take them? My next appointment is on the 26th and would hate for something to go wrong either way.

Snoekie, nice to hear from you again!

@Bondelq - i ENVY you!!!! You are so lucky the MS has passed! If it does end at 10weeks or so i still have about 2 weeks left hopefully... i like your attitude re: the telling early. Its how we feel about it too....

Are you wearing maternity clothes yet?

Going for our scan today - EEEEEKKKKKKK! I cant wait :woohoo: :woohoo: At least we will then know for certain how far along we are :blush:

Thanks to all for ur words of encouragement and ur support. Losing my JT was terrible and now with this miscarriage , but I am hanging in there and won't give up until I have my baby in my arms. I long for that. The doc has put me on metformin and said to continue taking even when I fall pregnant and to take it till 12 weeks as it minimises the risk of mc in the first trimester. Also he said I can ttc as soon as I feel up to it as there is no damage done to my body. He says that losing a baby at 24 weeks or 5 weeks isn't easy on any woman so I must do whatever I feel comfortable with. So I am hoping for a healthy pregnancy soon. Good luck to all the ladies that are pregnant. May God protect you and ur little ones and to all ttc good luck to u too.
