Happy it seems we're worrying about the same thing!
Yes I'm on Clexane, progesterone (Cyclogest), intralipids and low dose aspirin. I had a panel of NHS immune tests and then more tests privately. I'm on the clexane because I have Raynauds syndrome, an autoimmune condition that restricts blood flow. Like you I don't want to stop it now. My consultant is keeping me on progesterone until 16 wks- i tested for certain immune cells that causes progesterone to drop rapidly but generally 12 wks is when most stop.With your condition I doubt they will ask you to stop clexane now, too much of risk. A few ladies on here stopped 24-48hrs before a scheduled C section and then the epidural is ok. I read that it's ok to have the epi if you stop in the 48hr mark. That does mean you have to go for a scheduled delivery though. Other ladies stop between 36-38 weeks. It's nerve wrecking! I think I will keep doing the aspirin longer than clexane even if just every second day. My condition is worse during winter so no way will I stop it now.

Nottrusty, you will be surprised how the risk is lowered by your actual blood test and NT measurement. My consultant said the chart values are just background analysis. A lady here in her 40's also did the Harmony test and her risk came out lower than mine at 38. Fingers crossed you will be fine xxx

I'm wondering if anyone here has suggestions on affordable quality vitamins. I'm going to give this cocktail of vitamins a try. I've been feeling great ever since I tried Coq10, b12, cited, and bee pollen. Want to up the anty!

Thanks!!

yes, I am worried and I did call the clinic and they told me to stop everything at 12 weeks! But to be honest, the nurses at the fertility clinic (NHS clinic) don't seem to know what they are talking about!! I am not going to stop the pessaries at 12 weeks, I will stop at 16, I got enough left overs for it. And the clexane, stop at 12 weeks? I don't think so! the only good thing is that they don't seem to care about my case and said my GP would need to give it to me, so I told the GP (when i didn't know they wanted me to stop at 12 weeks) that I have to take it for the whole pregnancy and all I have to do is ask for a repeat prescription. You gotta play the system sometimes girl! I am not stopping at 12 weeks! No way! I am a bit concerned to keep going with the clexane right up until almost due date because I am not being monitored but I will crossed that bridge when I get there!

Thanks!!
get DHEA from Biovea (internet) it is reasonable priced. Also one of the specialist told me to take 60.000 IU of Vitamin D3 which I was meant to have done for 8 weeks but I only managed 7 as I turned out pregnant.
