I thought ANA antibodies had a link to MC.....A book by Dr Beers is V good, "is your body baby friendly" can you get hold of that?
Thanks, yes I have heard of that book. I haven't read it, but I know he talks about ANA antibodies.
My rhumetologist shot me down for steriods again this week, but he did recommend a doctor who works with Dr. Beer's clinic. I have an appointment for January! I'm on the cancellation list, hopefully I'll see him sooner.
Any auto antibodies have the potential to cause pregnancy problems. Although pregnancy is a natural thing it is still considered a foreign body. Antibodies, even those considered specific to particular areas in the body, have the potential to affect other areas. I have high ANA along with antibodies against my thyroid, but the antibodies have affected many other parts of my body including my heart and neurological system. ANA can definitely cause multiple MC. Also, do you have the Raynaud's phenomenon? If so, remember that the placenta is made of MANY blood vessels. Spasms of blood vessels causing any blood flow restriction in the placenta could also be a cause since the baby may not be getting the accurate amount of oxygen and nutrients necessary for survival.
I suggest seeing any and every doctor until one does...You know you body better than anyone and a doctor that doesn't listen to what you say isn't a good doctor.
I was luck enough to have doctors that listened to me and didn't think they knew everything. Unfortunately, the OB I was seeing for my pregnancy did and that's why mine ended the way it did. I was suppose to be getting monthly unltrasounds throughout the pregnancy, but only had too the entire almost 7 months! So when she was running out of amniotic fluid we never knew until it was too late.
