I am 36 years old and 6 1/2 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I have 2 copies of MTHFR A1298C. My homocysteine level was 4.7 in Dec. 2007. I have been tested for Factor V Leiden and according to the results, it says that I am negative for the R506Q mutation, but that this does not rule out other mutations within the Factor V gene. What does that mean???
My fertility doctor has me taking 1 baby aspirin a day and also folamin (I'm not sure what the dosage is, but I take 2 peach-colored pills a day). My 2 questions are: 1. Do I need more testing for Factor V Leiden? 2. Are the pills I am taking now sufficient to help sustain this pregnancy or should I be taking lovenox or some other blood thinner?
I appreciate your help!
