I had a doctor appointment yesterday for the baby. I left feeling really good and happy! And then I got a phone call.. my midwife wants me to see a high risk OB/GYN. Now I am feeling bummed.
Here is the story..
I was diagnosed with having a partially positive MTHFR, which is a rare blood clotting disorder. My original doctor wanted me to take the baby aspirin until I was 36 weeks pregnant. I did some research, talked to 2 other family members who were diagnosed with this as well, and I decided to stop taking the baby aspirin.
I went and saw a new midwife yesterday, she asked why I was on baby aspirin, I told her why they put me on it, and then told her that I stopped, she said she would talk to another midwife about what they think I should do (they just got back from an MTHFR seminar)
I get a phone call 3 hours later, letting me know she wants me to see a high risk OB/GYN to discuss my MTHFR.
My husband said they call it MTHFR for a reason because its a motherF'er.... that made me laugh!! :)
I am completely bummed. I don't want to be high risk. I don't want to have any complications. I want to have the freedom of all other non high risk pregnant peeps out there.
I was cheered up this morning when I opened my eyes and saw this:
