Results are in...

So after my long 16 day wait my Doctor finally called me back today. My tests are good. I do have MTHFR gene mutation, but not another mutation that combined can cause miscarriages. It is all really confusing and even my doctor said she had to read some of the test results twice to make sure. She was reading the results of one that said MTHFR does not cause re-current miscarriages. It is very common and I guess a lot of people can have MTHFR and never know it. I asked for a copy of the results to be faxed to me. Not sure if those will help me understand either but good to keep a copy handy.
So now I'm left feeling relieved....but yet still not. That means that 1. Unfortunately I just had to have two miscarriages and will go on to have a healthy pregnancy or 2. There is still the possibility of chromosomal abnormality. A lot of miscarriages are actually the cause of chromosome problems but some parents can actually have chromosome abnormality which can lead to multiple miscarriages and problems having a healthy pregnancy. I just hope that I was unfortunate twice by chance and this is not my problem. So now we just pray that our next time will be the most joyful time in our lives! Please keep us in your thoughts and prays.


  1. you are definitely in mine, nicole. keep that chin up. ;-)

  2. U are in my prayers Nicole and FYI: one of my sisters had some miscarriages before her 1st healthy baby, then she had I think 2 or @ least one more miscarrage then she had her second healthy was a rollercoaster but it all worked out in the end. soo Don't worry girl you'll be having your share of babies soon. "They" are just giving -nana- time to save more $$ 'cuz u know she'll be soo broke w/ all the grandchildren. lol. Take care :o)
