Some random stuff

Hey all! I just wanted to do a quick update on the blood work and this past week. I have part of the results back but the majority of the antiphospholipid panel is still pending. The lupus eval. was negative but slightly elevated and on the panel the cardolipin antibodies were skeptical. The IgG was negative but the IgA and IgM were indeterminate and were flagged. It may be because of hormones or something like that too. I have also been looking into getting a MTHFR mutation test done but I haven’t talked to the doctor yet. As you know, I was put on a folic acid supplement for ttc/pregnancy but I have found that synthetic folate can make things worse and actually prevent the body from absorbing folate from natural sources. So I ordered a new supplement online called folinic acid which is a bioavailable version and not synthetic so it is easier for the body to absorb. Plus its half the cost of the folic acid that I take now. Also the MTHFR can cause birth defects (I was born with a cleft) and thyroid problems (my mom has) and it is genetically passed down. I think I will wait to get tested for it until I get all of the results back from the panel, just in case.
I have also been sick for a while (like two weeks) and I thought it was a cold. I am going to the doctor tomorrow and I did a throat culture that was positive so hopefully I can get on some antibiotics and get rid of this nasty cough. So far we have not been ttc this cycle. I am thinking about starting up again in my April cycle. Its going to be difficult though because my cycles have shifted with the miscarriages. I went from starting my cycles between the 10th-12th of the month to the 17th of the month. I am going to have to sit down and do some calculating on due dates to make sure that it will be well past the new year before I would be due. My app on my cell that I use for cycle tracking needs two normal cycles to resume my normal days. When I logged the two MC, it re set the app to a 28 day cycle and mine are 30-31 days. So I will have to get out a calendar and do it myself. According to the app I should ovulate today but I haven’t and it is way too soon compared to my normal.
I don’t really have a whole lot else to say. Just keep sending some baby dust my way! Hopefully we will have our rainbow baby soon! ttyl
