My baby was stillborn 36 weeks into the pregnancy. It looks right now to be an antibody I have that produces blood clots. My doctor said I have to wait for 1 cycle and then I can start trying again. She has me set up for appointments with specialists.
I was just wondering if you knew of any people who have lost so late into the pregnancy and have had a successful pregnancy after that.
Thank you for your quick response.
My client had two miscarriages prior to having her last baby. Her previous pregnancies ended in the 1st & 2nd trimesters. After the miscarriages she saw the perinatologist and when she conceived the last time she had to take heparin shots throughout the pregnancy to prevent the blood clots and had a beautiful baby boy.
My other friend had lost two babies in the 3rd trimester one as late as 34 weeks and went on to have a healthy baby. Again, once they identified the antiphosphilipid syndrome they treated her last pregnancy with heparin as well and she went on to deliver a full term baby.
Heparin is a blood thinner and helps to prevent the clotting.I hope this information is helpful to you.
