  • New Treatment Plan

    Well my doctor visit went very well. I'm on a new treatment plan, including weekly Heparin instillations. A complete list of all my new medications is in my signature. Anyway.. he said that my husband and I can continue to try to conceive. I asked what to do when I do get pregnant.. if I should stop taking my meds right then or not. He said to not worry about it now, because it could be months before I am pregnant - and once that stick turns pink I should call him and he will let me know what to do at that point, depending on how everything is going. He put a note in my chart to inform him if I call to let him know I'm pregnant - so that made me very happy Things are going well I suppose.. the instillation was a big relief. And I feel much better and more hopefully about things than I did a few days ago <3
