I have antiphospholipid Syndrome, a blood disorder that causes m/c, low birth weight, still born birth etc. I had 2 m/c before I was diagnosed with this. I am now almost 6 weeks pregnant have been giving myself Heprin shots every morning in my stomach and was taking baby asprin every day 3 months prior to getting pregnant. I everything seems to be fine, my progesterone was a little low so I am also taking pills for that twice a day. I have had 1 u/s but was to early to see anything but the sac. I go back again tomorrow. I am just so nervous. I want this baby so bad and want to know the sucess rate for this disorder. If you have any info, please let me know. I will keep you all in my prayers.

Yes, I do have APS. I don't know how long ago your poast was, but I can probably share my experiences with you. I have had one very healthy boy on treatment and twins s due in 4 weeks. I also now live in Memphis, TN where the doctor who discovered this condition is. I love getting to see him personally!

It is possible to have a child when you have APS. I have found several web sites that are very positive. I am currently on Lovenox and it has great results. I'm so sorry for your loss as I have had two of my own. Make sure you ask your doctor about the shots before you try again. check out this web site too.

i am currently taking aspirin only. Anyone else only on aspirin. What turnouts have u had from heprin? How long did u take to get pregnant again?


Ame - December 21

I just had my 3rd miscarriage and I was on Lovenox. This is very disheartening since I thought fore sure this would work. Has anyone else experienced a loss on Hephrin or Lovenox? I just had my D&C 3 days ago. I am so frustrated and don't know which way to turn.

Ame sorry to hear about your loss. I can't imagine the pain your going through. i know when i had my m/c it hit hard because i had tried to get pregnant for a yr and a half. Then to just loose it that fast

Thank you. I try not to get too depressed because I know there are so many people out there like us who are having the same problems. I just hope we can figure something out soon so I can have a child.

Hi, I too suffer from APS. I am 30 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child and he is doing fine. I am on heparin injections 3x's a day, and I am very nervous about preterm labor. My last child was born at 35 1/2 weeks and she was a little small. Has anyone else experienced early labor with this disease?


Ame - January 4

Thank you Emily, I really appreciate your kind words. Still no word from the doctor on the additional tests done from the D&C, but with luck, we are hoping to try again in March. I will keep fingers crossed that we can both have babies this year! Megan, I have heard that pre-term labor is a big part of APS, but hopefully your doctor is monitoring you closely and that won't be a factor. I will keep you in my prayers that you deliver a heathly baby no matter when he/she comes!

Yes, I am on Lovenox (60 mgs - 1x day) and baby aspirin. I also take calcium and vitamin D and a prenatal vitamin. I am now 29 wks, but my doctor intends on taking the baby no later than 36 wks. This is my 3rd pregnancy and I have never had issues with pre-term labor. My placenta abrupted partially with my daughter who lived - that was nearly 6 yrs ago. My son born 2 yrs ago was not so fortunate. He died at 38 wks after my placenta abrupted completely. This is when they diagnosed me with APS. So far, the baby is growing well and is actually 1lb 7 oz bigger than most babies at this stage. I am praying that all will go well. Loosing a child is devastating and the closer I get the more nervous I get. I pray for you all who are trying or there. If you have any other questions, I'll be glad to share.

hello to all! well i am here i was so excited because i thought i might be pregnant, but no not yet. How long will it take me to get pregnant again it has been 4 months and nothing yet. The doctor gave me this medication called metformin to help me over ovulate and nothing. I really pray that it happens soon, i am running out of things to try, but i am also scared that the same thing might happen again. Anybody with advice. I am hoping that i don 't need the heprin or lovenox, i think the asprin is really helping. That is better i think than having to inject yourself daily. Well keep you ladies in my prayers and hopefully we will be pregnant soon. Any advice please email

hello, i know nobody hasn't posted on here in a long while but i just wanted to know on how u ladies were doing. i was diagnosed with aps after my second m/c (third preg) and i wanted to know how well the medications works. i guess by now u ladies should've already had ur babies for those who were preg again. i hope all turned out good so maybe there's still hope for me. let me know how things went. thanks.
