Since my ultrasound on Monday, a few things have changed. I have continued to have red spotting. I emailed Dr. Kim on Tuesday to let her know that my RE found a SCH. I received an email back from her nurse a few hours later stating that Dr. Kim wanted me to stop the lovenox completely. That freaked me out! Just this last week I still tested positive for 7 APS markers ( which is clotting issues). So the thought of stopping one of the main drugs that I feel have gotten me this far was not good. I laid in bed all night and wondered if I should listen to Dr. Kim or continue doing my injections at least every other day. I decided I would email her again today and see what the plan was. Luckily they were on top of things and first thing this morning I received this email from her nurse:
" Tonisha, the following are some recommendations per Dr. Kwak in regards to your bleeding episodes:......... RECOMMENDATIONS: a. Continue IVIG 15 gms weekly........ b. Start Lovenox 40 mg every other day........ c. Start Progesterone in oil injections 2 cc every day........ d. Ultrasounds weekly.......... e. Repeat NK and Cytokines post every 2nd infusion (I will email you an order)........ Where should I call the progesterone in oil to? It is an injection that needs to go in your buttock........ Thanks! this from Dr. Kims clinic"
After seeing this email this morning I felt so much better. This Friday will be my first infusion with 15grams. I talked to my boss last week because I have been missing every Friday for infusions. I am starting this week by getting them at work. I have my own office so it really won't be that big of a deal. I am also trying to talk him into putting his couch in my office to make my infusions easier and it will also be a benefit later in pregnancy to curl up during lunch and take a nice nap. My other boss already said it was a great idea!
Today is 8 weeks! I have made it a whole two months with little people growing in me and they are still alive. Wow I never thought this day would come. So incredibly thankful for every single moment I have with them. I also know the statistics on actually carrying both of them past the miscarriage phase. All I can do it take it day by day.
