    Default Hello!

    Hello all.

    I am Kailin and I came to a forum finally because I am in my second trimester of pregnancy and starting to freak out a bit. I was diagnosed (and maybe I should say still trying to figure out what is going on) with Lupus Anticoagulant issues. I give myself a shot daily (Lovenox) to thin the blood so that I dont clot in the umbilical cord or in the placenta.

    I am here hoping to seek other women that have gone through pregnancy and had good outcomes. or just their experience. This is such a scary time! The doctors tested my Kidney function and they are already starting to shut down production and my Uterine Arteries are looking preeclampsia-ish. I am so scared little baby girl will come too early but hoping that some women here with the same diagnoses had great outcomes!

    Hi Kailin,

    Welcome to WHL.
    I can't help you with your question, because I was 51, when I was diagnosed with Lupus.
    As far as I remember, we have had a few women here, who had babies recently. I am sure, somebody with an answer will come along soon.
    I can imagine, that you are scared, but try to relax, I know it's easier said than done.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    Hi Kailin,
    Welcome to WHL. I don't have any answers for you, since I had my children long before my diagnosis.
    We do have several new moms in the group, and some who are currently preggers.
    I hope that one of them reads this thread and give you some good advice.
    The rest of us will gladly give our support - we love being cyber aunties and uncles.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Hi Kailin! Welcome to WHL! There are several members here that have gone through pregnancy while having lupus. I am sure they will be back around during the week and will be glad to help you through.

    As Marla said, we are family here so welcome to the WHL family!
