Specialist Update

Tuesday we got the results from our specialist appointment. My genetic test (the only non curable problem) came back negative, the test to determine changes in my body since having Aiden came back negative, and all my blood work test came by negative except one test. The doc told use he's had patients that have had problems in all areas, Yikes! The one blood test I was postive for is called- A 1298C Homozygous genetic mutation..... UMM yea ok! In short I have 2 mutated genes which I inherited this from my mom AND dad that do not allow my folic acid, B12, B6 to circulate. Basically the baby will not get folic acid and will not survive and if they do about 70% will have birth defects. SOOO Aiden......basically a miracle!! Luckily this can be treated very easy, I started taking a prescribed vitamin yesterday! I also had low progesterone levels so I will take medicine for that too. Overall everything went well and we feel like we finally have answers.
