Hi everyone, I'm back after a lovely long relaxing weekend camping.
Welcome momof2 and confuzion!
Still - how are you today? Did the bleeding stop?
Gagrl...you have a ton of willpower waiting until Saturday to test! Did you end up going to Disney? We dream of taking our own little ones there some day.
As for me...I'm 15 dpo today (CD34) and did not bother testing this morning since I've had a couple of days of brown spotting and usually for me that means AF is on her way. I really would like to know one way or another before our fertility appt on Thursday!
Confuzion I'm so sorry about your losses. I also have mthfr. What gender do you have?
I'm homozygous for the c677T mutation. Double the fun with 2 copies . But I had a lot of testing for RPL with a clean bill of health all the way through except for that and an on-the-early side ovulation (with my daughter I O'ed CD11 for expample).
Gagrlin sorry you didn't get to do Disney! Aaghhh how have you not caved and tested yet?
Wish glad you enjoyed camping? Are you going to test before your appointment?
AFM had horrible cramping again yesterday and passed a quarter sized dark clot but still bleeding
MTHFR is a common gene mutation often linked to pregnancy loss as well as other health problems. C677T is one type of the mutation. Homozygous just means we have 2 copies of the mutated gene rather than being heterozygous (1 healthy gene and 1 mutated gene). Which also means it would affect us more than someone who only has one copy. It messes with your absorption of B vitamins so if you have it, you typically need to be on higher doses of B vitamins.
I'm sorry I had one miscarriage that was never ending like this. I think it lasted about 10 days. If the bleeding lasts more than 2 weeks I would see a doctor to make sure there is no retained tissue.
Thank you for explaining, I Googled it and felt like I was in a science class that I really didn't understand. Does taking vitamin b help prevent losses? I'm past the 2 weeks mark already and stiiiilll bleeding
Yes in theory it should. I took a bunch of methylated b vitamins (them being methylated makes them more absorbable) before having my daughter and my pregnancy with her was picture perfect (though the birth experience was a whole other story lol). Hoping it does the trick for us again FX.
Have you been following up with your doctor? Did they follow your hcg back down to close to zero?
Should be taking them while TTC. Really should be taking them life-long. It's not just pregnancy problems that it creates. But I slacked off and now I'm back on them. Hopefully I should be good to go by December. And please ask away I don't mind at all.
And yes I recommend you call. Even if induced there could tissue left behind. I thought I was done with one of my MCs but kept bleeding until a piece of placenta finally made its way out. That's when the bleeding completely went away and my cycle was back on track. If it doesn't come out on its own it can cause some dangerous complications so definitely let them know what's going on. It may be that your body is taking longer than normal to shed the lining (very possible with such a late loss) but better safe than sorry.
