For those of you who have spent the last couple months with me...thank you. For those of you new here that I haven't talked to...sorry for your loss. So many of you were supportive of me when I was fighting for all the blood tests for clotting disorders and hormone imbalances, thank you for that, ya kept me strong! For those who don't know, I had a missed m/c on 9-11 at 10 weeks, it was my first loss. Most OB's don't do any testing until after the 3rd loss, but I threw a fit and had them done after 1. They called with the results today...I tested positive for the anticardiolipin antibody. I guess there is IGG and IGM, mine was the IGM. I have no idea what that means yet as far as the IGG or IGM. They want to test again in 2 months to make sure it isn't a false positive, but I doubt it is. All I know right now is that it is some kind of clotting thing and if it is truly positive, then I will have to take baby aspirin until conception and then possibly even heparin shots throughout pregnancy...that's worst case. Like I said, I'll know more in 2 months. I'm starting the baby aspirin just in case, she said we could start TTC again and I don't want to take chances. I was told I could wait the 2 months and then if (+) start the baby aspirin, but it isn't going to hurt me to take it if I'm really (-) and they said it would be fine. I asked if it could have possibly caused our loss, and the MA had the nerve to tell me basically and a little nicer than this but still...that if I'd waited for the 3 losses, and then tested (+) we would know for sure, but with only one, it MIGHT have caused it. Anyway, that's what I know so far. I'm going to do some research now. Thanks for all your support through this.
I have started visiting a TTC after loss board (just considering it) so I'm not on this one as much, but I still come here and read up on everyone daily. I guess I've become a *lurker*. I feel really close to some of you, you sat with me through some of my darkest days. I owe you the world for helping me keep my sanity.
