Okay Hi everyone, I recently heard about Justmommies from a friend and thought id come by, I was referred to this board by someone on the trying to conceive with Medical Assistance board, said some of you might have more insight/advice, all of which I am open to
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?

Thanks, I am super nervous and apprehensive and a little scared to go to this appointment, so I am hoping for some advice.. But thank you for being so welcoming.

Lots and lots of additional testing. They may even want to repeat the tests you've already had.

As far as the MTHFR goes, you are compound heterozygous since you have 2 single copies of each gene. Fortunately that's not as serious as being homozygous but it's more serious than being heterozygous. Being compound hetero will put you at a higher risk of blood clots and recurrent miscarriage.

I would recommend starting a regimen of baby aspirin and ask the RE about Lovenox injections during pregnancy.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy Follow us on Facebook
