Well I had another o.b appt today and still could not here heartbeat yet :smileysad: but doc did see the sack and yolk:smileyhappy:..He said it looks okay so far. Now here is my question..my blood panel came back and I tested positive for the blood clotting factor thing (sorry I can't remember the name) anyway I have to do shots everyday until week 34. The doc was going to have me on loevnox (I think that's the name) but it was way spendy for me so I am going to do Heparin instead and I guess it is about the same thing but Heparin is older and has to be mixed and the other med you don't have to. Heparin is covered buy my insurance and cost way less for me. Has anyone done this? I am really scared to do this not because I am afraid of shots but because giving them to myself makes me feel qeezy:smileysurprised:! Also I don't know the side effects and I have a heart issue with irregular rhythms ect. Not dangerous just scares me when I feel the flip flopping of my heart..I have a cardiac doc..do you think I should call him and ask about this? I don't know ..what if any of you have experienced with this med? Please help I start tomorrow after I pick it up .

Triona thank you so much for your helpful info!!! It is nice to have all this helpful advice and know that I am not alone and not to be so scared. Let me tell you that I have been a complete mess for the last couple days or so. I am so glad to be apart of this board and have founf many comforting people like yourself!! I got my first shot today and the doc changed mine from twice a day to once a day..just more heparin at once rather than a half of a dose twice. Anyway I hope this helps to save my little one and continues to agree with my body!
