Yes, Jamie and Kara are exactly right -- your doc knows your history, and should be able to explain his or her reasoning.

Good luck!

My MFM told me to start when TTC. I don't have any underlying conditions that the require anticoagulation, borderline HTN. However, my dad had a blood clot resulting in a stroke at the age of 45 so my MFM is still debating whether even further anticoagulation (Lovenox) would be helpful in the pregnancy.

I would just ask your doc why he chooses 12 weeks to know what his reasoning is. I was worried the LDA would be linked to miscarriage but my MFM and OB think the risk is minimal.

Good luck!

My doctor had me start it at 12 weeks.

Best of luck to you!

You should start it when your doctor tells you. Some people start it earlier, or are on it when not pregnant due to blood clotting disorders. Others aren't on it at all. Some docs don't want it started until 12 weeks, and others start it first positive pregnancy test. Everyone is different and each doc is different, and since your doc knows the intimate details of your medical history, it's best to go with his/her recommendation!

HOW EXCITING, btw! Wishing you much success with TTC #2!

My husband and are planning on TTC #2 in November. When I saw my MFM, she recommended starting LDA on a positive HPT. Is this a normal starting time? I have been noticing that some women are starting it months prior to TTC. Just curious.
