My dr. just called me on my work phone so i was freaking out and scared. He said "Do you have a minute to talk" which scared me even more. He started to get into everything, and said it all came back normal accept one thing. So we have your answer! He said "We tested for MTHFR" right there my heart dropped. I started to bawl my eyes out I dont know if it was because I knew that I did have something and I wasnt crazy and all these miscarriages were happening and now I have a reason for it all, or because I do have something wrong with me and its upsetting. Anyway he went on to explain I dont have both genetic MTHFR mutations...I just have one mutation. Which he explained is good! I mean its bad, because thats the reason for all my lost babies...but its better to only have one mutation instead of two. So I am "MTHFR heterozygeous" as he put it. The AWESOME thing is since I dont have the two mutations...all I have to do is take a pill called folgard twice a day and he said the effects are immediate. I CAN HAVE A HEALTHY BABY AS EARLY AS NEXT CYCLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cant believe this!!!! This totally takes away the sadness from my huge temp drop today. Because even if I was pregnant I would have most likely miscarried anyway...so now I can take my medicine and be confident next time I get pregnant it WILL BE A STICKY ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

of course I didn't mean amazing that you have something wrong, but amazing that you know what it is and it is a relatively easy fix, meaning you can have a healthy pregnancy very soon!

Did you tell DH? Is he excited!?

What fantastic news! I'm thrilled for you. It's wonderful that it's something as simple as taking a pill. It looks like you will be pregnant this year and have a baby late this year or early next year!!!!

Yep Chelle! I have to take it throughout the whole pregnancy (because my body doesnt metabolize folic acid and vitamins the way it should, so i need about 10 times the normal amount in prenatal vitamins) so i have to take this pill twice a day + my regular prenatal + when i get pregnant i will have to do the baby aspirin once a day because MTHFR is a genetic blood clotting disorder so the baby aspririn is meant to prevent clotting!
