I'm Augie, DH is Chris. We were ttc for about a year before getting married and had three losses during that time. We then took about a year off for insurance and wedding purposes. After the wedding I started seeing a new doctor who was willing to start testing immediately since my cycles are irregular and I have had recurrent losses. I got the results back today. All but one test was normal. I have two MTHFR mutations. He's having me take 2 mg of folic acid, B6, and B12 daily in addition to the regular prenatal vitamin. Once pregnant I'll be started on blood thinners (from my research it looks likely to be Lovenox but I really am not sure). Though the doctor didn't say anything about it, from my research and talking to KaryRN DH and I have decided to add a daily baby aspirin as well.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.
Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

Hi, my name is Ana. I actively post on the TTC 6+months board and lurk here. My husband (30)and I (29) are on our 12th cycle TTC and we've got nothin' to show for it. However, the reason I post now is because I've been diagnosed with the same mutation and have the same "plan". I'm on baby aspirin and B6 with my prenatals and as soon as I get pregnant it'll be the lovenox or heparin injections. Be sure that you get referred to a perinatologist for your pregnancy care. You and your future baby are considered high risk because of the clotting disorder and the peri clinic will take care of you as such.
I had a stroke when I was 20 and that's why I was tested in the first place. They're no joke, let me tell you.
I feel like I'm mentally prepared for the injections, etc... now, I just can't seem to get pregnant. We'll be pursuing infertility work-up here in the next month. Crap! is all I've got to say

Hey Augie! My sister has MTHFR mutations so I know a lot about them. I want you to swing by the High Risk board. In the resources subforum I've made a thread called blood disorders with lots of MTHFR resources. MTHFR mutations are easily the most common complication in the women of the high risk board, so you will have LOTS of support there!!!
