Honestly I like the lovenox. It made me feel better. My contition is called sticky blood. Before I realized I had it i would donate blood with my bff and she would be done it 15 minutes and it would take me over an hour. Even though the asprin works I am sure. The lovenox seems to just make my blood flow better.
I am concerned about ulcers but I pretty much always forget to take it anyway.
OMG is that how you figure out you had the condition from the PE? So scary!
Maternity ward sucks in that no one cares how you feel, what you think, or for your opinion. When you are ill or injured in the normal hospital they are concerned about how you are doing, looking for sign of further issues but in the maternity ward you are not dieing so they just kind of want to run the show for you.
I was on bed rest in the hospital I had nurses call me lazy, lie on my chart because I wouldn't do what they said, One put on my chart I had gestational diabetes and I was only allowed diabetic food because on a particularly bad night after two shots of terbutaline to stop contractions I asked her if I could pee in a bed pan because getting up and peeing (my water broke with both of my losses while peeing) seemed to scary for me. It took me a week before they would correct it.
I finally learned I just had to be firm. No choices for them. If I needed help I had to tell them to help me not ask. But the biggest thing was my partner. We were on the same page and he stepped in many times to correct and direct people when I was not well enough too.
Even at my induction they did a purposely small does of pitocin for 4 hours. So when my doctor came he could say "Well you not progressing lets stop for now and start in the morning" because he wanted to go home and sleep. My specialist had sent me there after an ultrasound was not good for an emergency induction. At first I agreed it was my partner who said no. We came here because the specialist thinks there might be something wrong we are not waiting until tomorrow. The nurse told us to be prepared cause the baby was not going to come until 5 am the next day. My partner said "No get going, he will be here at 10" sure enough he was born at 10:22. Barely 5 or 6 hours after the pitocin started. When my water broke at 5 cm after 2 hours of pitocin I had them turn it off. She thought I was nuts but I knew labor after my water broke was always fast and furious. They fought me but I just held my ground.
As much as they act superior and so on they are there to help you, you and you insurance pay them, and unless the baby or you is in serious danger they should not be controlling your every move.
