Re : Officially scared

Clexane is called lovenox in the US. It is a blood thinner that works if you've got a blood clotting disorder. That plus LDA are used to help with the blood clots that form in the placenta when it implants and after. That's why they like to start it sooner rather than later!

Re : HELLP and heredity

Hello! All I know is that they do say if your sister or mother has had it, your risk is higher. Have your sisters been tested for blood clotting disorders? If they test positive on something, it may be good to test yourself for whatever the doctors picked up on!

Re : Giving up on breastfeeding

I expressed 100 ml this morning, but I find he is too hungry to try the breast, he screams his little head off! But over all I can see the XS prem clothes are getting smaller, I'll just keep it up as long as I can...miracles do happen!
