  • I'm trying to stay positive but after having 4 consecutive losses, it's difficult to not think everything is going awry at every moment of the day. I try not to focus on it...but it's hard.

    I have given myself both of today's Heparin shots and I'm keeping my fingers crossed I'll get to keep doing it.
     


    Tomorrow morning is my second beta draw so we'll know more then.
     


    Keep those good thoughts and
     
    coming my way, ladies.

    So-- what does heparin do?

  • I guess the Heparin is supposed to encourage good placental attachment and growth. I did have a subchorionic bleed with our last loss (chromosomally normal). So hopefully it's going to help prevent that kind of thing, which might also prevent the placental abruption that we had with Charlotte.

  • The heparin is a blood thinner. It helps good blood flow and prevents clotting.
