I had PE, was undiagnosed until after my son was stillborn though. Initially we were told PE was to blame, now we have a descent doctor, we know it was only a complicating factor to the MTHFR.

Well yesterday i went to my Haematology appointment and it looks like i might need a transfusion.
I lost a lot of blood during my emergency c-section with my son and my iorn levels are not coming up like my specialist would like. So he wants me to keep on the iorn tablets for a little bit longer and i need weekly blood tests to check my levels and if they don't come up i will need one.

I am officially subscribing to your thread.
I have read back and know a few names - Kimnus from June and PA from around the forums.
Well I have just got back from my appointment at the recurrent miscarriage clinic and I have tested positive to heterozygous (meaning from one parent not both) Factor 5 Leiden.
I can't tell you how relieved I am - our chromosomes, 3d ultrasound and everything else came back fine.
They think the factor 5 caused my last two missed miscarriages, both babies died at 11 weeks and it was picked up at my nuchal scan at 12 and 13 weeks. I did a lot of research after the last miscarriage and had concluded that this might be caused by a blood clotting disorder as the fetus is relying on the placenta to take over at 10 weeks and if tiny blood clots have formed, the baby doesn't get nourished and then dies. I have no idea how i managed to have DS11.
Anyway, I have read back and seen that there are some others on here with the same factor 5. At the moment I am continuing on my low dose baby asprin (100mg) that I have been taking for the last month or so. I am also taking Ellevit and mega dose folic acid.
So I hope to share your journies and most of all I hope for a bfp and successful pregnancy very soon. They will monitor me at the clinic from 4 weeks and have said I can have weekly ultrasounds from 6 weeks onwards or less frequent - what I want. The clinic is so wonderful and the staff so amazingly supportive. The ultrasound today showed my corpos luteum and I would have ovulated about 6 days ago so I am really hoping we get a bfp.

Can I ask what the baby asprin does?
Is it for implantation or lining etc?
Wondering if I should try it

It's to thin your blood enough for bubs to attach to your lining properly...they have told me my lining is perfect but my blood is clotting too quick for a placenta to form..hence the early losses...

Well with factor 5 most miscarriages don't occur until after the tenth week. In my case a healthy heart beat was seen at 8 weeks and then the baby had died by 11. So the purpose of the baby aspirin is to act as a blood thinner to stop the tiny clots forming in the placenta so that the baby continues to be nourished. You can get it over the counter 100mg, it won't hurt. I highly recommend the book avoiding miscarriage by Susan rousselot. It has a whole chapter on blood clotting disorders and real life stories.
