After having 2 healthy children with no known problems during pregnancy, I lost my 3rd baby last year. I was 16 weeks (for those who haven't seen my previous post) but did not find out until I was supposed to be 18 weeks. Now they say I have a clotting disorder and I'm taking Lovenox shots every day to remedy this. What no one has discussed with me yet is how this will affect delivery. I have read several other places that after going on this medication they should have discussed a birth plan with me etc. I'm just wondering if they haven't because it's too early (I'm 11 weeks tomorrow) or if this is something we should begin to plan? I am SO hoping to not need pitocin or epidural but with my son I begged for none of that and after just 2 hours in the hospital (4 hours at 5cm) they ignored my requests and gave pitocin because they claimed it had been too long since I progressed. My son was born after just 4 hours of me being in the hospital. I've also read that being on Lovenox I can't have an epidural anyway unless they plan ahead and have me stop taking my medication and plan to induce me, but inducing means pitocin which means terrrrrrible pain I know I need to discuss this with my doctor but my next appointment isn't for another 2 weeks so any of your stories would be appreciated!
