HI Yesterday i came to know that i am MTHFR C677T homozygous. I already have a 2 year old girl and was planing another preg but now i am awarei am more at risk of having a miscarriage or stillborn. I am very worried and afraid and i have many questions since i already had a pregnancy and THANK GOD all went well. please help. am i really at more risk? am i really at more risk to have a stroke etc? what shall i do? i am 30 years old. Are there are vaccines i shall not give my daughter since she might have the same gene?
I called hospital and spoke to the haemogolist and told him my results. He said i do not need to worry cos i have nothing and if i become pregnant i do not need to take anything extra except from eating extra folic acid from foods. However, i am not convinced at all especially after reading online what could happen! My idea is to be healthy as much as possible, eat healthy, exercise etc but i think this will not be enough to carry a baby till birth (even though i already did) i am worried i might miscarry or have a stillbirth. I am trying to have an appointment with another haemotologist for a second opinion.My gynae told me i would need to take aspirin just as a precaution (as i already did in my first preg). What do you think? I am feeling as if they are not taking me seriously until something really bad happens and i do not want this of course!!!! :(
HAS ANYONE GONE THROUGH THIS? ANY ADVICE PLEASE?
