I hope so grin We deserve a shorter labour after all those injections!

oooh, that is very good news and might just explain why i went from 1cm to 10cm in 3 hours during my first delivery. I was on heparin from 6 weeks to 38 weeks.

Really sugar? shock thats pretty amazing for a first!
It took me 14 hours to get from 4cm but I wasn't on Heparin last time so I am really hoping this could be true!! I started on it this time at 16 weeks. smile

Ooh, interesting - might explain my 1hr45 labour with DD2 (rather than just my crap pelvic floor!).

TheSugarPlumFairy - I also went from 1 - 10 in about 3 hours! I didn't even have time for the epidural which they do as standard for twins...

Fingers crossed it's not too quick this time - I might not make it!!

hmmm i'm not convinced i had a 26 hour labour with my first and was on blood thinners lol

Well its 3 -1 baby, don't spoil it grin! Was it Clexane you were on?

Well that has decided it, I refuse to be on heparin on my next pregnancy! With my non-heparin pregnancies: My dc2 was 2.5hours labour 0-delivery, and dc3 was 1.5hours from 1st contraction to delivery. I can't possibly be on heparin for any future pregnancy, I can't risk getting any quicker!

(I have been on heparin for recurrent MC, but it is not helping, this has definitely helped me to decide to quit taking it!)

Gosh willitbe! grin
Sorry the heparin hasnt helped with the miscarriages though. Some people are resistant to it arent they?
