From what I understand, this syndrome produces antibodies that can form blood clots. As it relates to me, it can form blood clots in the placenta, which causes miscarriages. My doctor isn't sure if this is what happened to me a month ago, but he wants to treat it just in case. We are very thankful for that.
Starting on Sunday, I have to take Lovenox, which is another shot in the belly. The nurse said that it stings but it doesn't last too long. Lovenox is a blood thinner, similar to Heparin. Therefore, all of my shots should make me bleed more than they had previously, and she said that I'll bruise easier too. I'm thinking that the intramuscular shots in my butt are going to hurt even worse this time. Hopefully I'm wrong.
While I'm not looking forward to another shot and potential consequences of that, I'm very thankful that they found something and are treating it. I feel like we're being proactive, and that makes me very happy. Hopefully this is what happened last time, and we will have a better outcome this time around.
Sunday is day 1 of my cycle, and I have to go in the morning for an ultrasound to make sure everything looks good before we start estrogen and eventually progesterone. I'm nervous that they'll find something, so hopefully everything will be good to go. I'm ready to do this again and know what's going to happen once and for all.
