Got my blood test results back..who wants to play doctor LOL

So everything looks good except for my PTT LA screen is a little high, and the haxagonal phase is still confirmed... So basically the same as it was 6 years ago... PTT was high back then and lupus anticoagulant comes up not detected unless they run the hexagonal pattern... any opinions?

Lupus Anticoagulant with relex NOT DETECTED

PTT - LA screen 41h normal is < OR = 40sec (so i'm 1 second over I guess)
DRVVT Screen 38 normal is < OR = 45 sec (so i'm okay there)
HEXAGONAL PHASE CONFIRM Weakly Positive, normal is negative

Cardiolipin AB (IGA) (IGG) (IGM) are all negative

Beta 2 Glycoprotein I AB (IGG, IGA, IGM) all <9, reference range is <=20
Glucose Plasma 78 (normal 65-99)
Hemoglobin A1C with MPG 5.1 (Decreased risk of diabetes)

Creatinine 164 (normal 20-320)
Protein/Creatinine Ratio 67 (21-161)
Protein 11 (5-24 normal)
TSI 28 (Normal <140)

The stuff from the LA panel is well beyond my amateur doctoring skills. I did find some information here:

When do you see your MFM? This could be good news that nothing got worse or more definitive.

So if you are weakly positive will you be on a blood thinner during next pregnancy? Or will LDA be enough?

I think I will be put on blood thinner since I have an auto-immune thing (Crohn's) and am weakly postive for a clotting disorder. I have to make a follow up with the peri after I get my echo and ekg done to see what he thinks.

Just talked to the doc and he said if I got pregnant I would be on low dose aspirin and low does heparin starting at 12 weeks. He said my other blood work looks really good, but he wants to send me for a few more blood tests to make sure I don't have lupus and check a few other things. Soooo, I feel a little more hopeful knowing that I will be on something, maybe that will mean a different out come!
