I am wondering if anyone else has had the APS affect them during pregnancy but then their levels gradually improve afterwards? My levels seem to be getting better the longer I go on since my last pregnancy finished in 2011. My most recent bloods were only 9 for Beta, 7 for IgG but still positive for lupus anticoagulant. Platelets are also now 195 (the best they have been since 2008 with 1st pregnancy). My platelets have always been on the low side (around 120) since diagnosed in 2008 so I was surprised to see such an improvement in Sept tests. They did drop to 62 at the end of my 2nd pregnancy. I have currently had some symptoms such as the pins and needles in fingers, joint pain in knees and fatigue on and off but overall much better since starting low dose aspirin end of last year.
I would love to try for a 3rd pregnancy and child but wonder if I am just pushing my luck? I have 2 beautiful children (7yr and 4yrs) who despite being born premmie (27wks and 33wks) and growth restricted (605 grams and 1050grams) are healthy and developing well. I was on twice daily 60mg Clexane injections and baby aspirin during 2nd pregnancy and once a day 40mg Clexane and aspirin for 1st pregnancy.
Now that my body seems to be recovering I feel like I should just be grateful for what I have and move on with life.......especially knowing what another pregnancy would involve. However now that I have received these recent results I have started dreaming again and wondering whether my body could react differently next time since the levels are so low at the moment.
I am just voicing my thoughts that I feel I can't really discuss with any friends or family-no one really understands and everyone would think I was crazy to even want to go through it all again.
Thanks for listening,
