IVF with PGD may never happen. I've developed a blood clot in my left lung. Likely from my D&C 2 weeks ago. I'm in critical care receiving IV Heparin. I'm still spotting so the concern is I'll re hemorrhage while they try to treat my clot with blood thinners.
I feel like this will end my TTC days. Scared to death I'll die and devastated.

Sophie - oh my goodness this is so scary. Sending you the best of thoughts that you recover. Really hope they can treat the clot with blood thinners. My husband has to be on them for life and has been on heparin after heart surgery and it really does wonders. So hoping it helps clear it out. Glad it was found but what a scary thing. You are definitely in my thoughts.

I'm devastated. I've been saying for years that I was clotting and my babies were dying 1st trimester. Will be interesting to see if genetics was normal for this loss. If so.... Regardless all future fertility efforts are on hold

You just worry about getting better and all the other stuff will work itself out. I know it's devastating though.

Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear.

I have a clotting disorder as well so I know the fear. Hang in there and give heparin a chance to work. I will keep you in my thoughts and please hang in there the best you can. It will be better soon!

Heading home tomorrow on Lovenox. Hematologist says I should have always been on Lovenox and that the Follistim elevated my estrogen beyond what my baby Asa could handle and caused the clot (PE). She is committed to working with my RE to help us carry a baby. I see my RE Tuesday. Let's hope he agrees to the plan.

Fingers crossed!

I was on Fragmin for the first two trimesters of my pregnancy. I never had it before, and I am convinced it helped keep the pregnancy going. I started the Fragmin around the time of the transfer of the embryo.

Well ladies, unless something else arises I'm scheduled to start my ivf with my 2nd cycle which will likely be the beginning of November. However I'm told the process is life threatening for me because I need a therapeutic dose of Lovenox for several more months (80mg twice a day) but I will have to come off my Lovenox completely for 7-10 days around egg retrieval to prevent my ovaries from bleeding. Of course no Lovenox during the time my E2 will be at its highest is life threatening due to my clotting disorder and my most recent clotting event that I'm not fully recovered from. I have mixed emotions. I just turned 44. I can't afford to wait til next year for ivf and I'm told the same risk applies regardless of when we begin ivf- now or next year. So feeling really scared and depressed and defeated. 😔

Sophie - I'm so sorry you have to deal with this. This is incredibly scary. Are you wanting to proceed regardless of the risks?

Do they think the clotting disorder caused the miscarriages? If so what's would be the plan to prevent it this time around now that you know it's a clotting issue.

Lots of tough decisions ahead I'm sure. Best wishes in deciding what's best for you.
