Also known as lupus anticoagulant or anticardiolipin antibodies. Does anyone have this? Does anyone know how common this is? Does anyone know anything about it?
I went to my OB today and she is classifying me as having "multiple m/c's" and suggested that I see a high risk Dr and get a full blood work up to test for all kind of things but this is the only one she really mentioned.
I don't understand how my two losses can be connected? My first was at 20 weeks, 3 days due to placental abruption and my most recent loss was at 4-5 weeks. I brought this up to my OB and she agreed and said they were two totally different situations. Do you think if I had the antibody thing it could cause both of these losses that were totally different?
Also, is a loss at 20 weeks a m/c if the she was born alive and moving? I don't consider that a m/c but my OB is saying I have had 2 m/c now.
Today was a VERY overwhelming appt and gave me a lot to think about. I am going to get a 2nd opinion at another OB that came highly recommended to me next Friday. Then I have a consultation with a high risk Dr on September 6th. Can anyone help ease my mind about this? I am really freaking out that I have some blood clotting disorder now and that's why I have had two losses. Help!
