Starting Heparin for afib...and pregnant
Anyone have experience taking heparin while pregnant?  My cardiologist says aspirin should be enough, but my GP and the Perinatologist I'm seeing say it's not enough, I should be taking heparin during the last trimester of my pregnancy

ooops....posted this before I was finished.

So, of course I'm concerned about this.  Does anyone else have experience with heparin (low molecular weight) during pregnancy?

I believe it's common to take heparin during pregnancy. It is taken by women with clotting disorders such as antiphospholipid syndrome to prevent miscarriage so it must be considered safe.
