My daughter was stillborn on April 14, 2011. It has been a long hard road but we r ready to TTC again in July. I have a beautiful 2 year old daughter named Emily. I recently just got all my bloodwork back and it showed I have two blood clotting disorders that may have been the culprit behind the stillbirth. I have
PAI-1 4G/4G and homozygous C677t MTHFR. I also had a miscarriage at 9 weeks before my daughter. Anyone have these blood clotting disorders and go on to have a healthy baby? What medicine did u take? I'm taking a baby aspirin, 4000 mg of folic acid, prenatal vitamin, DHA, and possibly lovenox injections if I decide I want them. Thanks for listening

hey i have the MTHFR disorder. it did not contribute to my son being stillborn but i was told it could cause problems in the future. that being said when i got pregnant with my daughter (who is now 7 months) i took everything you mentioned and i took the Lovenox shots once a day
