On Coumadin, found out I'm pregnant

I'm on Coumadin and just found out yesterday that I am pregnant. I know that there is danger of miscarriage, birth defects, etc.  I really need to hear some true stories right now.  Good and bad.  Anyone have any real cases they can discuss with me?

Hi!
I hope you have called your doctor and switched your medication.  Lovenox is an excellent alternative when one is pregnant.  Call today if you haven't already!  Coumadin can cause significant birth defects.
Good luck!

I did get it switched.  I'm taking the injections now.  I'm just terrified of the damage that may have already been caused.
