Being diagnosed with Anitphospholipid Antibodies Syndrome (APS) has been a blessing and a curse.
Blessing: I now know the reason to why I keep having miscarriages.
Curse: I have to watch my intake of green veggies because they cause blood clots. And I love me some green veggies.
APS is a blood clotting disorder that causes my body to build blood clots to kill anything in my body that isn't me. So that sweet little baby that I have growing inside of me is being attacked and starved of its nutritional supply causing me to have miscarriages.
I wish my body wasn't so mean to my unborn children, but it's what I have. I cannot change the fact that I was born with this. I just have to live with it. So if that means taking baby aspirin on a daily basis and becoming a chick with injectables, then that's what I'll do. Even though the lovely heparin gives me bruises, those bruises are there for love. For the love of the child that I am trying to create for my family.
