Come across someone on an unrelated forum who has lost a baby due to APS. A family member died of APS related condition and so she was tested -first test positive, second test negative - her consultant said a false positive. Wasn't treated, went on to lose baby - then test positive for APS again.
(This makes me so angry - but that's another story)
Now pregnant again - coming up to 20 weeks - under better care. She tested negative for APS at start of pregnancy.
Her (seemingly knowledgeable) consultant has come across some recent research showing a link between placental abruption and heparin - so at the moment she is on 150mg aspirin and frequent growth scans - but will go onto heparin if she has a positive APS test -
Did say this forum existed...maybe she will head over sometime - I said you were all nice and helpful! - but for now wants me to ask if anyone has tested negative in early pregnancy and then positive in later pregnancy?
(And I guess anyone come across the heparin and abruption research/argument???)
