I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your babies. It is so hard to miscarry, and unfortunately many women with "sticky blood" do.
Sticky blood is also called Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS or Hughes Syndrome). It CAN occur without Lupus present, many women find out that they have APS when they do miscarry a few times. If you have APS, it is nearly impossible to keep a pregnancy because your body produces clots and will abort the fetus. You need to be treated in order to have a healthy pregnancy!
The treatment for APS can be either Heparin (which are the shots), warfarin or even asprin in less severe cases. I would think that Heparin shots would be better in your case, seeing as how you are having miscarraiges. You will notice a DRAMATIC improvement with the shots! What you need to do is see a specialist that knows a lot about Antiphospholipid Syndrome. Do you get headaches?
You need to get your blood thinned out, you can have strokes or Trans-ischemic attacks (mini strokes) in more severe cases and if your blood isn't thinned! Your especially at high risk because you have the bloodwork. And you can be on Heparin while pregnant, to help your blood stay thin so that you do not miscarry. If you are in the UK, Dr. Graham Hughes and his collegues work out of St. Thomas Hospital with women with primary APS so that they can be treated and have "normal" pregnancies. You really need to be treated!!! I hope this helps you, if you have any questions.. please stick them in here and I will try and help
I have APS too, and I am on warfarin and all of my symptoms got better! I do get the bruising on my legs, it helped with the warfarin
