I posted a couple weeks back about my situation. Thought I would post in case this helps anyone with theirs. I just got my blood results back on Friday. I tested positive for Factor V Leiden. The nurse didn?t tell me heterozygous or homo so today I called and she told me I am homozygous. Wonderful! This puts me at an even greater risk of developing clots. They are setting up an appointment for me with a Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist out of town. Not sure when that will be yet, but hopefully soon. I only had two miscarriages but pushed for the testing and I am SOOO glad I did. If you are in my situation, it can?t hurt to ask, especially if you think something is wrong.
In case you are wondering, here is my history: 1st son born with microtia of the right ear (ear and ear canal not developed) which research doesn?t show really how this happens except could possibly be from blood flow restriction. Then I had a miscarriage at 12wks after him. I went on to have another boy with no complications. Now, I just experienced another miscarriage at 12wks at the beginning of the month.
Hope this helps someone, or if you are in a similar situation and want to share advice, please do!! I am really scared now and wish my appointment would hurry and get here. Thanks for listening?
