@meagan-t fear of losing the potential placebo effect 😂. Really that's all it is because I know it really doesn't mean much and nothing can be done about it if I do have it. I know there are different forms, it's the C form I beleive I have and based on migrane triggers/symptoms, 1 copy.
Anyone have a prenatal gummy that has Methylfoate (I do not want folic acid) to recommend? I want to switch because mine includes a DHA soft gel which is not going over well with my stomach. I don't see the point in buying that if I can't take half of it (and really the gummy flavor is getting old). ETA I have tried the Smarty Pants but hate that I have to take 6! And the banana flavor is a big fat no....
Question for the STM+ crowd: are food aversions related to nausea? I'm wondering if I'll be able to eat better when the nausea goes away (assuming does.... LOL), or if the aversions stick around the whole pregnancy?
@steminist please keep in mind that this is a very simple explanation...... I *think* based on my own experience and family history that I have MTHFR genetic mutation. I started looking into it after my second loss. Studies use to think it was a key component to RPL. Now it's looking like it's not. BUT, in my research, I found a lot of things I suffer from can be linked. One of the biggest for me was weather induced migranes. I've seen a neurologist who put me on CoQ10 which helps but not significantly. It turns out that people who have this mutation can have difficulty processing folic acid into methylfolate, the bioavailable form, which in turn causes a whole chain reaction of complications with energy production (this is where the CoQ10 comes in to assist mitochondrian). Obviously I was taking in a lot of FA while TTC and I was having a lot of migranes. I figured switching would not hurt anything even if it wouldn't prevent another loss. So I did. This is the first thing that has shown me sustained relief. I have 50% few headache days and ones I was having were easily treated with Advil. It doesn't mean I for sure have the mutation (I'm on the fence with being tested) but it does lean me in that direction. I'm afraid to start using FA again because I don't like the migrane lifestyle and quite honestly it makes me feel more comfortable with my loss history to avoid it just in case.
Is anyone else taking a magnesium supplement? I am and notice that some days I have no bloat. Currently 7 weeks. Just curious if anyone else has zero bloat?

@meagan-t I feel the same way. I remember getting anxiety around this time during my first pregnancy because this is the time when unfortunately some people leave so there’s a lot of bad news/uncertain news. Just remember each day you are still pregnant, and it’s ok to sometimes skip those threads until you are ready.
Hi all - has anyone had any experience with a subchorionic hematoma? I had my 7 week scan today and all looks well but they spotted a SCH. I'm waiting on a call for any further instructions, but a little concerned. I'm on Lovenox & baby aspirin and I'm wondering if these contributed. I haven't had any bleeding yet... was told to expect it.
So I went in for my first ultrasound today thinking I was 7w5d. However, when she did the ultrasound, baby was measuring at 6 weeks. We did see the heartbeat, but it’s was pretty low, around 82bpm, which she said was normal at 6 weeks. I’m just confused though, because this means I got a very positive pregnancy test at exactly 3 weeks pregnant....but at that point, I was actually 5 days late for my period so I really should’ve been 4w5d..Has this happened to anyone else? Should I be worried?

Is anyone else pregnant and nursing? It hasn’t hurt like this since he was a newborn!
