Re: Miscarraige at 19 weeks and what I found out
I'm sorry for your loss too. I know how hard it is to go on without your baby with whom you should be holding. =( I think about my daughter everyday.
I would encourage you to have blood work to see if you are positive for this mutated gene - MTHFR. If you are positive and become pregnant again, you should see a high risk obgyn. In their testing, make sure they are testing for all the blood disorders such as factor V leiden; might as well rule them all out.
One of the problems with this gene mutation is your body does not absorb folic acid and you would need to be on a special vitamin that has folic acid in methylfolate form. I need extra B-6 and B-12 as well. Folic acid also help in controlling your homocysteine levels as well. When you homocysteine levels are high, you could develop blood clots. When I lost the baby, my homocysteine levels were normal and I still had a blood clot, so that doesn't necessarily mean anything.
I'm currently pregnant again and I'm waiting for my appt with a high risk ob. Some people who have this need to take daily injections of a blood thinner. I'm not sure if I have to or not, we'll see.
Best of luck to you, lots of baby dust!!
