I was diagnosed as being a compound heterozyous (C677T & A1298C) in July of 2008. I was 8 wks pregnant with my DD at the time and had lost my dad to a pulmonary embolism almost 2 years prior. This alone prompted my OB to look for a clotting factor. I thank heaven everyday he did. I was put on Foltx twice a day, 1 baby asprin once a day and a once a day shot of Fragmin for my entire pregnancy. The last week I was pregnant I was on Heprin twice a day instead of the Fragmin. In February of 2009, I delivered a beautiful little girl weighing in at only 6lbs 3oz. Due to Pre-eclampsia and the fact her growth had slowed down a lot in the recent weeks, she was delivered a little more than two weeks early healthy as can be!
Today I take 1 Foltx a day as a prevention to keep my homocystine levels in check. Life is back to normal (well as normal as it gets!) and is wonderful.
