So my MFM nurse called this morning to tell me that my blood clotting results came back today (this was my 3rd time to be tested in 2 years.) She said that they were looking closely at my lupis anticoagulant test and while that particular test came back negative, I was positive for another part of that lupus testing. It was something that she's never actually seen in all her years and had to run it by the doc before calling me. He confirmed that I do have a blood clotting disorder but it seems pretty rare.

I have an appt and u/s with him Wed. morning and he'll go over the details and treatment then with us. (I'm already on a baby asprin a day.) Has anyone ever heard of test results like this? It doesn't seem to be very cut and dry like I would have expected if I had MTHFR or some other similar disorder. I'm a bit confused!

You might be getting heparin or similar injections. I don't know much about clotting disorders but lots of girls here do. Welcome to the high risk board. Good luck at your appointment wednesday.

I don't know much about it but I was tested for that and it came back fine. If you look up blood clotting disorders on google it should be listed on there because I know I remember seeing it. Good luck on wed!

Thanks for your reply! I've done extensive research online about blood clotting disorders in general, I was just confused about how the test results came back, since I haven't really been told what I have. It's just all so confusing! lol

It's hard to say, or give any information until you know exactly what it is that you tested positive for. I honestly don't know much about the lupus spectrum of the clotting issue. I hope that it's nothing too serious, and the treatment goes OK for you! KUP.
