Thank you! 6 weeks is an okay time in terms of fs I say!
I just posted this on my original post but thought I'd pop it in here. I suppose my next question is - Is FVL (blood clotting disorder) an autoimmune disorder? Does it cause my body to reject the baby and how? Is it different to NK cells and ANA or is there a link?
Just found this information on the Genea website which rules out blood to baby issues I think.
"For a long time, it was believed that thicker, "sticky" blood can cause first trimester miscarriages because it leads to blood clots in the developing placenta, preventing the embryo from getting the oxygen it needs. We now know that the first trimester placenta doesn't actually have any blood flowing through it- blood vessels are developing but they are plugged by placenta cells. In addition, our experience with embryos in IVF has taught us that oxygen is toxic to early embryos, so direct blood flow would be damaging."
But then this:
"It now appears that the antiphospholipid antibodies in acquired thrombophilias, or the proteins made by genes in inherited thrombophilias, prevent the placental cells from properly attaching to the mother's uterus. Without normal placenta development, the embryo cannot grow."
So...how do I get these placental cells to attach properly to the uterus???
Have any of you been told why you have had a normal pregnancy/ies and then gone on to having problems?
