My Appointment is TOMORROW!

Jan 12, 2011 - 8 comments

I don't write on here much but after going to the doctor last week and having 13 ulcers in my mouth my doctor told me I need to get my stress out and find a way to express myself...to share what I'm stressed about.  Other than DH I can't do that with anyone else...they don't understand.  So, I figured you ladies do!  

I'm scared, nervous, excited, stressed and anxious about my appointment tomorrow.  I go to see the Reproductive Endocrinologist at 11 AM tomorrow.  I don't know what to do or say.  I've filled out all the paperwork.  I feel like I'm over analyzing this.  I'm just scared to death he's gonna say there is nothing they can do.  We pray each night that we will be blessed with a health baby in the near future and I'm so scared it is not going to happen.  

It's been a long journey and I just pray that tomorrow brings closure...but a happy closure.  To find out what's wrong and how we exactly can treat it.  I have MTHFR and my doctors here have NO CLUE how to treat it.  The standard B6, B12, Folate, Baby Aspirin doesn't work.  Also, when I get pregnant my body doesn't make enough progesterone...so finally by the time I'm seen by the doctor they put me on progesterone it's too late.

Okay I seem to be rambling so I'm gonna go back to work and I'll update tomorrow about how it went.  It will probably be after 4 since we have an hour and half drive home and I have to go close at work.  Thanks for listening to me!



FINALLY KNOW MY PROBLEM!!!

Apr 20, 2009 - 8 comments

So after sitting in the doctor I no longer have finger nails.  The doctor came in and told me that I have a B6 B12 and Folic Acid deficiency.  He said that it causes Venous thrombosis.  The veins of the baby constrict therefore no blood or hardly any blood goes through the baby and the baby can't get the proper nutrients or something like that.  Then I look it up somewhere else and it's the formation of blood clots. So, I dont' know.  Anyway because I can't take large amounts of folic acid b/c my mouth breaks out with ulcers and everything else.  I have to now take prescription lower dose more times a day.  So I take it 3 or 4 times a day just in smaller doses.  The B6 and B12 I know I have to take multiple times but I'm not sure.  It's an easy fix!  As for the production of milk.  It's just b/c I've been pregnant before and the milk never dried.  They were worried about a tumor but my pro-lactin levels came back normal.  All I can say is THANK YOU GOD!!!!!  It could have been a lot worse.....but instead a quick and easy fix!

Post D & C appointment

Mar 25, 2009 - 1 comments

Okay so I'm just going to write it here so that I don't take up room in the forums.  I went back to the doc today (tomorrow will be 3 weeks since D & C)  they asked me how I was doing and feeling.  She wants to run every test they possibly can on me to find out why I keep having these miscarriages.  So I had blood work done today and I'm waiting for the office to call and tell me if my hcg is back at 0.  If so BRING ON THE TEST!!!  If not I have to wait a few more weeks then go back for another reading.  I'm just ready to get these test over with.  She told me also that if they do come back at 0 and I get the lab work done I should be able to ttc again within a couple of weeks.  I absolutly LOVE the doctors I have....if it wasn't for them I literally will be going out of state.  ( I live within minutes of NC, so not too long of a trip)

Finally my doc appointment

Jan 13, 2009 - 0 comments

I went to the doctor today for a check of my hormones.  He said that he wanted to check my levels at 6 months past miscarriage.  I went today and I showed him my ovulation chart.  He really doesn't like medhelp's version but I don't know why.  Anyway, he is going to actually do all the test next month.  He said it was to close to me starting so there is really no reason to do the test now....not knowing what the outcome would be since he did not do it after ovulation.  So I am to start doing more ovulation kits on CD 16+  He told me to call as soon as I got a positive test.  He would test me on day 6 and 8 after ovulation to check my progesterone.   He said if my progesterone is low he would put me on clomid.  And we would go from there.  If it was normal and not low he would figure out what else could be wrong.  He is also testing my thyroid gland too during the blood work.

He also seems to think that I had two miscarriages back in May and July.  I was talking about what the miscarriage was looking like b/c he said he needed to know to estimate how far I was.  So he expected me to be 8-12 weeks when I m/c.  I told him I had two cycles...one in May and one in June then found out on June 30 I was pregnant.  He thinks that I was preggers with twins and miscarried one then the next month miscarried again in July.  SO....I still don't know what's going on but I feel kind of content.


Anyway...I am just ready to know something and go from there.
