Well....MOTHER F*****!!! Looks like I've got MTHFR to deal with too. The doctor said they don't think that is what is causing the recurrent m/c but they don't really know for sure. Looks like Dr. Google will be my friend tonight.
On the bright side I have a good size follicle and a few smaller ones that are coming along nicely. She asked if I wanted to do the trigger shot but I think we'll see how this month goes and try that next month if we have to.

I went in for another round of trigger point injections this morning too. They did 2 more nerve blocks in my forehead Oh my god those hurt! I started to hyperventalate and got a little lightheaded before she reminded me to breath S L O W L Y. After letting me catch my breath Dr. D did a couple more in my lower jaw 4 more in my scalp. It feels weird to raise my eyebrows now so of course that is what I am sitting here doing.

Is the MTHFR heterozygous (just one copy) or homozygous (two copies)? I have hetero MTHFR, and a hematologist and two REs have said that MTHFR isn't really something that needs to be addressed unless it's homozygous - it's Factor V Leiden that they tend to think is more of an issue.

I didn't realize until I started consulting Dr. Google last night that there was a difference. I'm calling the doctor's office this morning to find out more.
I think the only thing I need to do is up my folic acid intake and keep taking the baby asprin.
