Ok so I got a call from my Dr. saying that they gave me the wrong information. I actually have a gene mutation called (methylenetetrahydrofolate) otherwise known as MTHFR. All I really know is that it basically means I don't absorb folic acid. Which in turn puts me at high risk for children with Downs or Spina Bifida . Also increases my risk for heart attack and stroke.

I really don't know anything yet until I see the Dr. on Jan 5. In the mean time we are going to just wait till we get the go ahead to start trying again. Dr has put me on Metanx until then.

If you have this please comment and let me know what your Dr. Told you about it.



  1. Ansley,

    I am very sorry to hear all that has happened to you. Going through this is never easy.

    I have been absent from supporting you and I wanted to give you my support and condolences.

    I go tomorrow to see RE and I am scared crapless.

    If you need anyone to chat with...please feel free to contact me.

  2. Hi Ansley,
    I too am sorry to hear that this as well, and although I do not have experience with MTHFR, I have seen so many ladies on the online boards and pregnancy blogs with this gene who have gone on to have healthy children (and be healthy themselves). I will be thinking of you and praying for all the best for you (and can't wait to hear some good news from you in the future!)
