RLP update — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

RLP update

As expected, nothing came back to indicate any reason for our losses.  They ran the gamut of tests, both on myself and DH.  We are both chromosomally normal.  I do carry one gene for MTHFR, but it isn't the "contributory" one that would cause any weird blood stuff.  There was also a autoimmune lab that came back funky, so he did a retest today, but seems to think it was a lab error, as nothing else indicated an autoimmune problem.  So, the plan is to forge ahead when we are ready.  

ETA:  For documentation reasons, he is ruling the first M/C a chemical pregnancy, the second loss a "twin accident", as he thinks something may have happened either cord entanglement or placenta, and the third loss was obviously chromosomal. 

Added BONUS:  When I asked him if he is concerned about my age (35 in august), he said "What?!  You're in my young group.  Relax."   I am not sure how to feel about any of this, so we'll take it one day at a time.  Thanks for all the support yesterday!

     I second this, as I had some borderline stuff go back and forth, and last time the blood was drawn I had a VERY slightly positive autoimmune disorder come up,.  It would come with pregnancy complication and future health issues, but the doc insisted it was so very low and on the top of the normal range that I have nothing to worry about.  Anyways, I still am going to request extra blood testing next time I get pg, as I am just not interested in being surprised by anything.

    But it is GREAT you got an all clear, other than the alternative of going down yet another difficult path!  Hugs!

  • I'm glad that you got some answers...even if it didn't really help to explain your losses. ((hugs))  I think it's gerat that your doctor sounds positive about working with you and is encouraging you to try again when you're ready though.

  • I am so sorry for your losses.  It must be frustrating to not have any answers.  Even if your doctor doesn't believe that your MTHFR mutation is causing clotting you still have a limited ability to break down synthetic folic acid which puts you at risk for folate deficiency related pregnancy complications.   You might want to ask your doctor about L-methylfolate.  I work with NeevoDHA, a prenatal specifically indicated for women with the MTHFR polymorphism.  It contains active, already broken down L-methylfolate as an alternative to synthetic folic acid (found in enriched foods and most supplements).  Active L-methylfolate bypasses the MTHFR mutation and 100% bioavailable.  It is something simple and safe you can do to be certain MTHFR-related folate deficiency is not an issue while trying to conceive and during pregnancy.  

    Your doctor is right.  You are young!  I was 40 with my last one.  I will cross my fingers for a bfp in the near future.  Best of luck!.
