Important to know: It sounds like you are being treated for a thrombophilia (clotting disorder), antiphospholipid antibodies or recurrent miscarriage. It is imperative that you ask your doctor why you are getting these drugs. This sounds like a high risk pregnancy and you need to make sure you understand the plan, risks and benefits each step of the way. Get involved in your care. Good luck.
