  1. James- Thanks for taking the time to respond with all the helpful and informative links. I have not seen a doctor who seems to know a whole lot about PSD, I plan on seeing a heamatologist (sp?) but I was hoping that mine was pregnancy acquired and that possibly I tested to early. I have no history of DVT or PE. Thanks again, Missy
  2. I found out I had PSD when I was about 12 weeks pregnant, I have read on this site that in order for it to be hereditary that you have to get it from your mother or father, that it doesnt skip generations. I had both my parents tested and they were negative, so I got tested about 8 weeks post partem, and tested deficient. So my main question is did I test to early and if so How long should I wait? Any info would be great Missy
  3. Jennifer- I always heard that PSD can cause growth problems or produce a smaller baby, but my son was 8 lbs 12 ozs. I guess it all depends on the person. From What I understand, girls tend to be smaller than boys.
  4. Im sorry to hear of your losses. If you continue to read through the forum, you will see many sucessful pregnancy stories. I have had 5 m/c over the last 4 years, but delivered a healthy baby boy 2 weeks ago. I was diagnosed with PSD with this pregnancy but my high risk suspected the PSD was the cause of my m/c which all occured before 8 weeks. This site has been invaluable to me, and I hope it helps ease your fears about deciding on whether or not to continue to try for more children. Missy
  5. Harriet- welcome and congratulations on your pregnancy! I have not been around as long as some others but I can assure you this is a great place for information and support. I was injecting Lovenox 80mg 2 x day up until 30 weeks then was switched to Fragmin 10,000 units once daily, at 34 weeks I was switched to regular heparin 20,000 units 2 x day, which Im currently still doing. Most of us are familiar with some form of Heparin. The injecting will defintely get better and soon you will be a real pro! Good luck and keep us updated Missy
  6. Is this strep B a vaginal infection? I actually had a vaginal swab done today, they said it was routine to check for some type of strep infection that is completely harmless to us but could be fatal to the baby if left untreated. They say it is passed to the baby through a vaginal delivery. Just wondering if we are talking about the same thing. My results wont be back until next week.
  7. Leo- Hope things continue to go well for you!! I am currently 36 weeks- 4 weeks and counting....
  8. I get knots frequently, usually when I give myself the shot. Im also taking aspirin. My stomach looks like a war zone, but my OB assures me its all normal.
