Im currently 11 weeks pregnant and following lots of tests (bad pregnancy history) have been put on heparin injections daily for protein s deficiency (protein s deficiency is basically thick blood which cant get through the placenta easily therefore causing all sorts of probs like miscarriage and stillbirth) -the thing is that when they took the blood from me to test for this i was already pregnant, just didn't know it at that time. Pregnancy is know to cause this decrease in the reading for protein s so my consultant doesn't know if i really am deficient or if it was just the pregnancy interfering with the reading.
Anyway Ive been put on these daily injections to thin the blood even tho i might not require them-it was ultimately my choice to take the treatment but i am worried about breast-feeding once (if) baby arrives as there is some concern over the drugs getting into the milk.
Basically does anyone on here have any experience with this? as im feeling really crappy at the mo, have legs covered in bruises from these damned injections and well just feeling poo i spose.
