Okay Hi everyone, I recently heard about Justmommies from a friend and thought id come by

I was recently referred to a RE (Tuesday) by a High Risk OBGYN that I was referred to after my second miscarriage, well since I have had a 3rd (Nov 7) she has decided to refer me to a RE, for further tests and possible treatments.

I have had quite a bit of blood work done so far, and all that has been found at this time is 2 MTHFR mutations C677T and A1298C I was put on 4mg of Folic Acid daily. My husband and I went today for chromosome analysis and I have the appointment with the RE on 20th.

I was just hoping to get any insight from anyone on what I might be able to expect on this first appointment with the RE?

I'm not sure what your first appointment will be like, mine wasn't standard, but I did want to point you in the direction of the High Risk board (I'm the host). The MTHFR mutation is probably the most common complication women on our board have, and in addition to a resource thread about blood disorders in the Subforum we have A LOT of women who can provide you with support. Your RE will most likely put you on blood thinners during your pregnancy, baby aspirin and Lovenox are the most common combination. My sister has MTHFR - do you know if you are heterozygous or homozygous, that can impact what treatment you'll have.

heterozygous from what the paper says:
"she is heterozygous for the MTHFR C677T mutation, as well as A1298C, making for a compound heterozygote for MTHFR. But I am unsure as to what that all means...

Thank you for your suggestion of the other message board I will be visiting there...

Welcome to the board. I had three miscarriages before I had my first. I never saw an RE at the time because I didn't even know what an RE was. I did have a bunch of tests done through my regular OB. It took a few months to get all the tests done. But, it sounds like your RE is moving faster.

I really hope you get some answers and a treatment plan. I also wanted to point you in the direction of this group. The girls over there should be able to relate and answer some of your questions.

I can't answer your q about the RE, but I was just told that I have two MTHFR mutations as well. (I'm not sure which mutations yet...) I'll be taking 2mg of folic acid, b6, b12, and a prenatal vitamin daily. Once I get pregnant he wants to add in a blood thinner.

I'm new to the TTCMA board as well.

My first RE appointment wasn't very dramatic - she asked a bunch of questions and ordered more tests.
