    I was just wondering if anyone had to take the Heparin injections during pregnancy?

    I was diagnosed with Protein S (not enough of it)in my last pregnancy and they started me on twice daily jabs at 17 weeks.
    I go for appointment next week about it again(11 weeks now) and they want to start me on them then until just before birth.

    If you started them,when did you start them?
    And I know that you can't have an epidural within a timeframe of having the injection but can't remember how long.

    I was shocked last time and didn't really take it all in except that c-sections they try and avoid with this.
    I have epilepsy(mild) too so they don't want me getting too tired during labour as it brings on seizures.

    Is anyone taking these or due to take them?

    Thanks :)
