Just some background information. I gave birth in Jan. of 2009 and 6 days later my baby passed away. All I know and the doctors know is that she suffered severe brain damage from oxygen deprivation. It broke my heart, so bad that I blamed myself. I went for my 6 week checkup and asked the midwife what testing could I get done to see if I caused this.

I went to a hematologist, he did a complete blood panel and found that my fibrinogen was 444, and my sed rate was 46 and my factor VII was slightly elevated. He thought that I could have APS and referred me to a Rheumatologist. Well, the Rheum. ran more tests, found my cardiolipins were 91. He came to the conclusion that I don't have APS, and told me to come back in 6 months. He said he didn't know what is wrong with me and that there could be nothing wrong with me.

I really need to know if whatever this is that I have or if there is anything wrong. I forgot to add that my daughter had a stroke sometime after delivery, or shortly during the delivery, they don;t know. If my body betrayed me and my daughters death is my fault I want to know. We want more children. If anyone has experienced these kind of test results please let me know. Thank you.
