I tested negative for factor v and all of the other blood disorders, but I want to be retested after I get off coumadin (just in case my postpartum hormones plaid a part in my results). How did you find out you were positive for factor v? Isn't taking lovenox/heparin super expensive (not that you can put a price on a healthy mom and baby)? I was on lovenox for 5 days and the shots were like $300 and that was with insurance.

I don't know what happen with your lupus anticoagulant after you re-did the test, but I wanted to tell you that a borderline lupus anticoagulant (real borderline, always stable in further labs) without any other clotting disorder was enough to cause (most probably) my hellp syndrome at 32 +2 during my first pregnancy and deliver an iugr baby. The good news is that Lovenox (Clexane 4000 in Italy), along with LDA, is working very well for me during this second pregnancy. I am now 37 + 1, having my c-section this Monday with very mild or no PE at all and an estimated normal though not big second daughter. I'll keep you updated, feel free to ask if you want to know more (I was very moved by your posts on Mason, I think you are a great human being)
