7/31 At 11am my son was fine heart beat 166, 7/31 at 4pm I went back into the hospital in so much pain. They couldnt find my sons heartbeat. I gave birth to my sleeping angle on 8/1. I had alot of clotting and needed a blood transfusion. My doctor said there were alot of clots and they were big clots. On 8/3 I was rushed to the hospital after being home for one day with pain. I dont really remember alot about it but they found that i had blood clots on my lungs. I was treated wtih heprin, lovenox and warfrain. I have been home for about a week and I have so many questions.
I want to try again one day for another baby but will my placenta tear again? Can have a healthy baby? will I get the blood clots again? Did I get the clot just because of the Placenta abruption?
I am trying to deal with all of this but it is really hard. I dont want to complain but i need someone to talk to. My husband is amazing but i dont want to annoy him and my friends. I feel like every pain or ache i have is going to be a blood clot and kill me. I dont wanna die and I want to give my husband a healthy baby.

That's terrible so sorry for your loss. I can't say I've had any experience in this area but feel welcome to talk to me any time. I guess the main thing would be to come up with a plan with your doctor and discuss if there is anything that can be done to make sure that it doesn't happen again. These are probably all things that you need to talk to the doctor about. If he doesn't have answers find a second opinion or do some of your own research. Their is more than likely something you can do to reduce the risk of blood clots. I don't know if aspirin temporarily would be safe that would be one thing to discuss. http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/fact+sheet...,12665?gclid=COGwwZ3f9bECFaRMpgodp0QA7A here is some information I thought may be a little helpful. Good luck anyway. I hope in the near future you have a happy healthy baby and have good health yourself :)
