Positive ANA and Anit DS DNA..no symptoms????

The short version of my story is I went to a fertility doctor after having trouble conceiving my 2nd child and having a miscarriage..the dr ran a ton of blood work and I cam up with with a positive abnormal ANA (no numbers listed) and a positive high anti ds dna at 38..I think it said over 9 was considered positive.  I have zero symptoms of lupus and am now scared to death I have lupus.  Could this mean anything else??I have an appointment with a rheumotologist next week but this is the hardest week while I wait.  I spoke to a friends aunt who is a rheumatologist and she thinks the positive anti dna is rare in people in my age to be false (i'm 32) and thinks I may be developing lupus..Any suggestions? advice?? I am assuming the rheumotologist will re-run all these blood tests and add some of their own but could this be something else? or nothing at all???
