Remember how everything has been going perfect since the beginning of this pregnancy? Well that came to a complete stop last night. It was about 6 pm and I felt a huge gush of something warm going down my leg. I went to the bathroom and my worst fears were realized. My panties were full of blood and as I sat down a huge splash hit the toilet. I looked and there was a blood clot about the size of my hand with LOTS of red blood. I called my RE and told him what just happened. No cramps, no back pain, just blood and huge clots. He told me to lay down for the rest of the night and come in this morning for a u/s. As you can imagine I didn't sleep at all last night. I think it was one of the longest nights of my life. So please excuse all the typos and grammar mistakes.
We went in this morning and immediately saw two gestational sacs measuring . The sacs are measuring 6w6d. Baby "A" is measuring 6w4d with a
heartbeat of 123bpm. Baby "B' is measuring 6w3d with a heartbeat of
120bpm. As you can see on the attached u/s there is a third sac right at
the bottom of Baby "B" (which is top pic). At this point he is unsure
if that is a third gestational sac or a fluid sac in where the blood is
coming from. Now on to his main concern. He is very concerned
at the amount of lovenox I am taking daily. He said that he wouldn't
even prescribe a patient with an active lung blood clot 80 mg daily. He
is concerned that Dr. Kim is in Chicago and I am here being on such a
high dose. He said it is completely my decision and he will support me
regardless, but is not surprised I am bleeding on this dosage and will
most likely continue to bleed. I won't lie, I think he has a valid
point. I was only diagnosed with clotting factors. I am going to talk
talk with Dr. Kim, but I think after discussions with Al and Dr. H I am
going to stay with 40mg a day from here on out.
Any ideas on the lovenox from ladies that are familiar with this? Even though I am scared shit less of the bleeding, I am so thankful we had two heartbeats today.
