Hello! A bit of history first:
Pregnancy #1 - Heavy bleeding starting at 16 weeks, placental abruption at 22w6d, loss of DD.
Pregnancy #2 - On progesterone. Bleeding started at 25w4d, hospital bed rest for 5 weeks, placental abruption at 30w4d, DS spent 6.5 weeks in NICU but is a healthy 2 year old now.
I am now on pregnancy #3, 5w2d, and with a different doctor. I've been taking baby aspirin for months, and started progesterone the day after the BFP. We ran all of the tests we could, I saw a hematologist and genetic counselor, and basically nothing is clearly wrong, as in no clotting disorders. But both the hematologist and my OB agreed that I should be on Lovenox for the pregnancy. The problem is, my insurance has denied it at least once, possibly twice already. I talked to my doctor today and he said he is giving more details, clarifying that two doctors are recommending this, and he said he will "resubmit every 3 seconds if I need to." But I'm wondering if anyone has had issues like this, and what they did in the meantime. I have my first appointment on Monday (3.13), so I am going to really push for either samples of Lovenox or Heparin, or a prescription for Heparin in the meantime. I just feel like this is my cure for my pregnancy issues, and I need to start taking it before the placenta gets too developed. Any advice or experience is more than welcome!
