So I am new here...found this site while googling my clotting problem. Looks like a great place to come for advice and support, which you might have gotten from my post title! I am looking for anyone who has been in my shoes to tell me their story. I am so unsure. My backround is this- we have 2 kids (boy,14 and girl,10) I am 37, dh is 42. I have always wanted another one but he was on the fence until last year, when his mom passed away. We got pg and lost it right away. Got pg again and lost that baby at 10 weeks. Our first ones were so easy, no probs at all. My OB did some testing and discovered I have Factor 2 prothrombin mutation and that it could be the cause of these two losses. If we decide to try again, I will need Lovenox shots to keep the pregnancy. This scares my dh, and I admit I'm a little scared too. But add this in with the whole "advanced age" thing, am I crazy to take the risk?
My mom keeps asking me why do I want to start over when we are older and so close to being done (able to go out without getting a sitter, take small trips alone, etc). And I can't explain it, I just get so sad when I think of being done with having kids. It's all I have ever wanted, to be a mom. Don't get me wrong, I know our kids will need us still as they get older. But I miss the "little" stage.
Am I tempting fate here? Has anyone gone on to have healthy babies with all this "stuff" to deal with? I know someone must have! I can't be alone in this!
