I'm New and Nervous
Fri, 05-07-2004 - 12:42pm
I was for four and a half months when I miscarried my first baby. After miscarrying, I found out that I have Factor V Leiden, a blood clot disorder. I am now pregnant again (Due on Christmas day) and very nervous. I am on Heparin injections twice a day and am very scared that something might happen again to discontinue this pregnancy. Is there anyone that can relate????

Welcome to our "worry" board and HUGE HUGS! I am sorry about your loss and it must of been so hard to lose a baby that late in pg. I am so sorry you have to go through that pain. But I am so glad they were able to find out the cause and even though I don't have clotting disorder I know about many women who were successful with proper treatment.

Hi, Renee,

I don't know much about this disorder, but I do want to welcome you. There are so many extraordinary and supportive women on this board (ya just met Katherine, always there with kind words and thoughts) that I'm sure you'll find answers to your questions and fellow worriers! Post often, vent often. We're here!
