Tears, shaking, throat lump.
I sat in her office and asked to call my husband. He came to the office and we went in for the ultrasound. The technician said something about how she saw where I ovulated blah blah blah. Then she said she didn’t see any cardiac activity, but it could still be early. I explained to her that we had already seen the heartbeat at our last appointment 3 weeks earlier.
More tears and the start of sobbing.
The testing revealed I was positive for Lupus anticoagulants and I’ve since been diagnosed with Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome. My treatment plan was to take a prenatal vitamin and low dose aspirin. On April 25, 2010 I found out I was pregnant for the third time. I was on Heparin for the first trimester, and now I’m on Lovenox up until around 36 weeks, when I’ll switch back to heparin until delivery. I continue to take the prenatal vitamins and low dose aspirin.
