I have an almost 4 year old, but since trying for the 2nd, we've had 3 miscarriages within 2 years. Tested positive for antiphospholipids and elevated NK Cells. I'm starting femara this weekend then I go for my mid cycle ultrasound around Oct 31. If my eggs are ready to go, I'll do an intralipid infusion on Nov 1 and then if I get pregnant, they will start Lovenox and do another infusion at time heartbeat is detected on ultrasound. Does this sound like a good treatment plan. Shouldn't I get another infusion at the time of positive pregnancy test instead of waiting for a heartbeat and throughout the first trimester? It seems like my body attacks the baby instantly. Will there be enough of the intralipid from the time of ovulation to fight off the NK cells?

Without knowing all of your immune testing , I cant address correct treatment for you , that would be a blind diagnosis. I do agree with the lovenox in this case however, and the intralipids certainly wont hurt, but without complete testing I can tell you if this is correct or all that you need.
