The nurse called to tell me that the test for lupus anti-phospolipid antibody came back positive...I'm just shocked since i've been told for the last 10 months that I was fine and nothing was wrong with me...I'm glad they found something, but i'm so worried i'm not going to have another baby ...I need to do some more reading...does anyone know anything about it? Can you have a healthy pregnancy with it? What do they do to keep you pregnant with that? It's just a mess because i'm switching doctors, but don't have an appointment till September 27th, so I can't even meet with a doctor yet...I wanted to get pregnant again next month, but I was told that I can not get pregnant before I see a doctor and get more tests done...My problem isn't getting pregnant, it's staying pregnant, so it's going to be hard for me not to try...It's all i've been doing for over 2 years...I'm supposed to call the new office next week to see if they got the info and if I can get in sooner.

I'm heading out the door for work and don't have time for a long reply at the moment. I have done some research on this though, and it should be fairly easy to control and to have a successful pregnancy now that you have this diagnosis.

Here is a link for you to check out. APS FOUNDATION

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

I don't know a whole heck of a lot about it, but I know that it's more common than you probably think. I didn't come back positive for that whole panel, but part of the panel came back positive for me. I was treated with baby asprin and had a mostly uneventful pregnancy until pre-e set in at 28 weeks.

I'm so glad you got an answer, though I know that sometimes just the knowing can be almost as scary as not knowing anything at all. I do think that now that you have a diagnosis that you can be treated correctly and have a successful pregnancy! Best of luck!

*Thank you so much to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!*

Yikes...I wish I had some knowledge to share with you about it, but I really don't know a thing about it.
I just wanted to tell you we are here for you & even though It's heartbreaking to actually know you have a disease, it IS nice to atleast KNOW. Kwim?

Hopefuly it is easily corrected/controlled.

This is a good site for information about lupus & its relation to fertility: The Alan E. Beer Center for Reproductive Immunolog

This is a Yahoo support group for people with immunological issues with questions or comments about fertility: immunologysupport : Reproductive Immunology Support

There are nurses there who are very helpful. You can ask anything, and they are very forthcoming and friendly. Good luck!!

I am glad the other ladies have a couple links to share with you. I don't know too much about lupus, I know some.

I am glad you have an answer and can start working towards something.
