I am DESPERATELY seeking a doctor to help me with lovenox. My OB was pretty shocked I was even on it. I am on it because I have the MTHFR heterozygous c677t mutation and after my loss last fall of a normal girl, I am grasping at straws as to what caused that and how to prevent it from happening to the twins. The MTHFR mutation has been linked with early pregnancy loss because of clotting. My RE gave me a script for it to last through my first trimester. I would like to be on it until week 35 and then switch to heparin (a less form). Anyways, I asked my OB's office for a referral to a local hematologist and a referral to an MFM that travels to Erie to see high risk patients. I hope they give me both. In the meantime I also contacted Cleveland Clinic to see an MFM there. Erie is a little behind on stuff and Cleveland may give me better care.
I also had a tiny bit of brown spotting again today.
My next sono isn't for 5 whole weeks! I'll be 12 weeks already by the time it happens. I asked my OB if we could do another one before then (because of my loss at 9.5 weeks) and she said not officially but she did say she'd be okay with me calling in and saying I'm "cramping" or "spotting" (this one would actually be true) and I could get one. She asked I didn't do it more than once a week. I won't. But now I'm debating when I should do one. I definitely can't wait until 12 weeks. My m/c happened at 9w4d last fall. I'm 7w2d today. I'm thinking AT LEAST one at 10w. But can I even wait that long to see the twins again???

- After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.
