I was just diagnosed with placental tearing at 19w5d.
The OBGYN on cal at the hospital admitted me immediately and i was there for three days while they monitored the tear, the babys heartbeat, and my bloodwork. He told me all of the risks and said that he recommended I be placed on bedrest for the remainder of the pregnancy. The tear is affecting 1/3 of my placenta.
Here's the part where I'm confused. There was some time between my release from the hospital and my next OBGYN appointment with my regular doctor. I've been trying to get an idea of what the next couple of months were going to look like because the O/C doc that helped me during my stay was pretty clear about what he thought should happen, but said he would forward everything to my DR and HE would be the one to make any final decisions about my care. It's been about a week, my DR still has yet to call. I left him voicemail because I'm trying to figure out if I should start getting my disability together for work but I'm still not entirely sure what he's going to recommend for treatment.
Do any of you have experience? If you do, how big was your tear and what was your pregnancy like? Should I expect bedrest?View Thread

I was diagnosed with renal artery stenosis at the age of 24, I had a stent placed June 2013, and ANOTHER in March 2014. This past week I was informed by the looks of my BP readings again and symptoms it is probably re-narrowing. I am pretty scared, this will be my third attempt. This time he is going to place a drug medicated balloon to continuously release medicine and hope this works. I am scheduled next week for this. If this does not work last option is a Kidney Bypass which is even scarier to think about. This past week I was in the hospital the whole time and now I am back at work but still have hypertension going on. It comes in waves and is hard to work past, but bills have to be paid. I have thought about the future too, I have a 4 year old son and hoped someday I could give him a sibling but it sounds like it could be a complicated pregnancy from what I have heard. I would love to hear from more women with the condition to relate too. This is a rough time and rough issue to deal with .View Thread
I have the MTHFR gene mutation and I have a healthy 3 year old son. I was recently told by my doctor that if I was to get pregnant with twins that it could be deadly. I'm not sure what the depth of your condition, but I do wish you the best. If you do get pregnant please take care of your self.View Thread
Recently I was told I was pregnant and my HCG levels are 1289 when an ultrasound was done they could see a sack like thing in my uterus. The doctor told me it could be healthy or ectopic because of the low number. I was taken out of work just in case. This is only my 2nd pregnancy the last one ended in miscarriage. Any advice??View Thread
My daughter went in for her level 2 sonogram-confirmed they were having a boy, even a pic of him smiling. Then yesterday she gets an EMAIL from doctors office that everything looked pretty good but she had low lying placenta & bright light bowel. She was told to call their office & could get an Appt. with a high risk prg DR. She called & we are now waiting for a phone call from HR prg doctors office to set the appt. In the mean-time she is scared, worried out of her mind & constantly crying. I really feel its extremely insensitive for any doctor to EMAIL-those types of results to any patient-especially a first time young mom to be! Its just not right! So she had to find out what BLB was from the internet & of course its a marker for so many different abnormalities. We will love this baby no matter what! For now, its' the waiting that is emotionally damaging-and how she was informed-none of which can be good for any pregnancy! Please pray for us & we will be praying for other posters in this position! GOD BLESS!View Thread

I know this was posted a while ago and I'm not sure if and when anyone will see this but I am on pregnancy number nine. My Dr started me in lovenox today.

Okay, so I didn't ask my doctor this, as for some reason I can have her doing her thing down there and feel comfortable, but asking sex related questions gets me awkward.
I am 10 weeks tomorrow, and a week ago I went in for an ultrasound. My Dr. said everything was looking wonderful, except a tiny uterus blood clot she said was healing and going away. She told me to take it easy until our next appointment in 3 weeks.
Well, it has been over a months since myself, and my hubby have had sex, but I do "help" him out. Well, he feels bad that he's the only one on the receiving end, and he wants to please me. My Dr. didn't mention sex specifically, but said to take it easy, and I didn't dare to ask about oral sex.. So my question is:
Is it safe for our little gummy bear, having a small healing blood clot, for me to "O", and receive oral from my hubby?
I have Factor 2 and 5 genetic mutation and have had a huge blood clot in the past, I'm now 6 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child but this time I'm on Lovenox shots every 12 hours.. has anyone been on these shots and how was your pregnancy/delivery?View Thread
I have a heart sha[ed uterus im 24 weeks they expect that i will have the baby early because she is so tiny. but this is my third pregnancy and my other two were 7 pounds and full term. they said if i do full term its only gonna be 5 to 6 pounds. I guess it depends on every pregnancy. from what i read rarely do you have a full term delivery but a way to prolong pregnancy is to do alot of walking it will strengthen your uterus to hold the baby longer.View Thread
I am just over 8 weeks pregnant. This is my second pregnancy. At my first prenatal appt, my CBC showed a slightly elevated platelet count. They rechecked it a week later and although it had gone down a little bit, they still werent happy with the numbers. I now have an appt with a hematologist in 2 weeks. Ofcourse i went to google, and got all kinds of bad news. Has anyone ever had a high platelet count during pregnancy? were there complications? thank you.View Thread
I had it happen to me too, I have one of the genetic factors too 25% chance of blood clots so I take a baby aspirin daily, but when pregnant I had to be on lovenox for all my pregnancies. the last few weeks I had to switch to heparin to BC lovenox can cause clots in spine if you need a epidermal when delivering. If you have a genetic factor and are on birth control your risk is even higher, bc birth control causes clots on its own. When I was on heparin I had to take calcium vit D supplements daily as well and still do. subcutaneous heparin is easy to stop not like warfarin Plavix or other blood thinners heparins bleeding risk is low. but I never saw a pregnant woman use heparin until end of third trimester. good luckView Thread

My husband and I expected to have our family complete by this point in our lives. Unfortunately, we have now joined so many others in the struggle to bring healthy babies into the world.
After two miscarriages, a preterm birth at 33 weeks and a very recent stillbirth at almost 26 weeks, I finally have a reason why. I was diagnosed with the Prothrombin gene mutation. We would really like to have at least one more child but we are afraid of having another loss. We are heartbroken over losing our baby girl last week.
I am hoping to get information from others who have similar histories on how their future pregnancies have gone after receiving treatment for the mutation. This will help us decide if we want to risk going through this again.
Hi there! I am new to this but I am 7w5d with my first pregnancy and I was just informed that I have 2 blood clots in my uterus I was so caught off guard I didn't know what to ask or what to say. All I was told was that they are very small and no heavy lifting no exercise no sex and if there is any pain or bleeding to go to the hospital. I haven't had any pain or bleeding. I just don't know what to think.View Thread
I have been suffering from grand mal seizures since 2004. I had just returned from a lengthy deployment to iraq as an army nurse. About 3 months after returning home, I suffered my first seizure. After a battery of tests, including an eeg, my doctors at the veteran's hospital concluded thatmy seizure was caused by 2 many concussions I.e. getting my bell rung. Plus a traumatic brain injury caused by an improvised explosive device. They tried many different medications but the seizures continued n appeared to get worse in severity. After about 2 years of suffering they finally found a medication that stopped the seizures altogether. I have been seizure free for about 6 years taking this medication religiously. I just found out I am expecting my first child n couldn't be happier. The only problem is the medication I'm on for my seizures is contraindicated during pregnacy. My doctor at the VA took me off it n did not prescribe any other medication in its place. The VA does not take care of pregnant veterans n outsources us to private practioners. The practioner I chose to go to won't take my case because she considers me way to high risk. Instead she has recommended that I see an ob-gyn in boston. The VA has to approve payment for this special treatment and they are taking their time. In the meantime, I am beside myself with worry about my health n the health of my unborn child. UView Thread
Hi, I'm from india & posting on-behalf of my wife. Little history --- 3 m/c at 5, 6 & 8 month respectively. 3rd m/c (2008): ACLA IgM positive (+45) diagonsed at 5th month. Clexane induced but stillbirth. 2013: PTT normal. ACLA IgG/IgM test results normal in Jun'13 & Sep'13 (tested twice), then conceived. LMP - 20-Oct-13 Started ecoaspirin 75mg since conception with folic acid. Following up with 2 doctors -- Local clinic & major hospital. Tests done so far.. TSH (1.56), GTT -- Normal (below 100) Now, on 2nd visit (@ 12weeks), the ob/gyn (hospital) is asking to get the ACLA test done again to see the results. My questions: 1) As per local Ob/Gyn, if we do ANTIBODIES test during pregnancy, then the result are likely to be positive. As it's been done twice before pregnancy & no anamolies seen, everything seems good. 2) If we do the test again & say, the results are positive, then will it be mis-diagnosis or need another intervention. Pl. help & share. deepakView Thread

My close friend found out that she has a perfect little surprise on the way she is now 12 weeks and 2 days. She has many blood clots in her uterus with baby and she was told to be emotionally prepared when she went to her visit on Monday there may not be a heartbeat?! She went to her appt expecting this terrible news. Baby is doing well heartbeat is strong baby is kicking around in the womb. My friend is scared that this little baby could go any day and she would not know. The doctors are not really being helpful any advise or experiences that you can share?View Thread
I'm 29 weeks today and have been in the hospital since yesterday for a partially separated placenta. I had some severe stomach pains and after having an ultrasound at my ob, I was sent here. Has anyone else had this? The doctors haven't told us much of anything. I've been given the first of 2 steroid shots to help his lungs, but they are holding off on the magnesium for his brain. I've had no active bleeding this entire time and my little boy looks great on all the monitors. The doctors said my placenta and uterus should be flush against each other, kind of like ll (sorry that's the best visual I can give), however mine look like this: l) and have a blood clot in between them. Has anyone continued to have a full term pregnancy with this? I'm very scared and in complete shock.View Thread

I recently found out that I have a heterozygous prothrombin gene mutation and a homozygous MTHFR c677t gene mutation. I was primarily advised by my physician to stop birth control and to go see my OB GYN. When I visited the OBGYN, they referred me to a hematologist (I am still waiting for an appointment). What implications do these have on fertility? Pregnancy? My husband and I would like to try to conceive in the next year, but this news (and some blog posts online) have me a bit worried about it. Does anyone have a similar story or experience they would be willing to share? Tips about visiting the hematologist?View Thread

Last night I started bleeding (not spotting) red blood. almost like the first day of your period. not too much but not a small amount either. I've been bleeding less and less ever since, & blood is getting darker, like the last day of period. No clots or tissue, yet. No cramps or pain. I'm so confused! I don't know what is going on. I have a dr's appointment later today but the wait is torture! Has anyone went through this early on in pregnancy? Thanks.View Thread

Hello. Has anyone used Lovenox prior to conception? My doctor first recommended to use Lovenox a week prior to when trying to conceive. Later he changed and said to come into the office when I get a positive pregnancy result. Isn't it too late to start Lovenox if I am already pregnant? Some background. After 2 miscarriages, I was tested and found out I am heterozygous for all of the following mutations. MTHFR Factor V Leiden Factor II
I am on Folbic (Folic Acid, B6 and B12) as well as Vitamin D3 (5,000 IU daily).
My husband is Homozygous for MTHFR and Heterozygous for Factor V Leiden. Negative on Factor II.
My husband and i have started to try for our first child this month. My period was one day late (which it never is) and is pretty regular so of course i got excited. However, it did show up. I had the leep procedure done years ago and had one ovary removed do to a cyst. I am trying to stay positive that I will conceive without any issues, but I still worry. I used an ovulation test this month and did get a positive result which was good to know. I am going to try using the clearblue digital test this month once my period is done. I am looking for some feedback/advice from anyone who has been in a similar situation, has one ovary and is trying/or is pregnant, and/or has had the leep procedure done. How long did you try to conceive? How was your pregnancy? High risk potential? etc etc.View Thread
