I just found out today from the hospital I have this blood issue. I've never heard of it, well I have but I haven't looked into it. I know it will bring on vascular and artial disorders. But how does this affect pregnancy? I read I should be taking folic acid, which I can't keep down the vitamins, but how do i do it? The ob's don't know I found out. I just picked up the results by chance today.

I don't know anything about this either, but I just wanted to say I will be thinking about you.

You can take Folic Acid on it's own.

What? The doctors didn't even tell you??? I would be steaming mad about that!

I'm not sure what it is but I'm positive there are ladies on JM with the same diagnosis. I wish I could remember their names..........?

I tried to google it but found a lot of conflicting information. Anything from possible serious complications to little to no complications.

I wonder if anyone on the high risk pregnancy board would be familiar with it?

I have MTHFR hetro.

Did you see what kind you have? There is about 5 kinds I believe.

With mine, I just have to be watched closer take of course a prenatal vitamin and a folic acid pill. I also take omega 3. MTHFR gives you a higher risk of recurrent miscarriages, hypertension and pre-E. Some have to take Herpin but mine isn't the worst kind.

It might be one of the answers to while you had a miscarriage so late last time.

I've never heard of it. If the Dr didn't even tell you though maybe they aren't worried about it? You can take folic acid on it's own. You can also eat foods that are high in folic acid if you have trouble with the pills.

If i were u i'd find out exactly which kind I had because not only is that morally wrong but if the doctors knew u had that and didnt tell you finding out that could be the reason for your horrible miscarraige experience that woudl be a law suit on their as*es!!
