Hi everyone I'm fairly new to this forum. I've had a really bad few months, as I mentioned before I lost a set of identical twins because of a placenta blood clot at 30 weeks. They discovered i had LA. It was the worst experience of my entire life and I will never truly get over it. I found out a few weeks back I was expecting again but despite Fragmin and aspirin an early scan confirmed the pregnancy had not developed so back to square one. They said it was probably a genetic fault - not down to the condition. Anyway I've been doing a lot of thinking. The consultant has said I've probably had this condition for 10 years (due to funny episode 10 years ago) but I feel physically ok. I exercise a lot, travel and have a full term job. I have lots of energy. The consultant is pretty certain my grandmother had this condition due to her medical history (Graves, blood clot episode and only one tiny baby at full term) yet she lived a full and otherwise healthy life until aged 95. I kept thinking 'should I stop exercising? Should I be ill? Should I stop doing what I normally would just because I 'now know' I have a condition. No! It's made me want to live my life more and be more determined to have a successful pregnancy in future. Believe me I've seen one of the worst possible 'symptoms' of this disease. But life goes on and just because I now know I have a disease will not change my mindset. It effects people in so many different ways. In terms of the history of medicine (that I teach!) I can't wait for this one to unravel!
