Congrats! I am so very sorry for the loss of your baby girl. I know pregnancy after loss can be a roller coaster all on its own. I will be thinking peaceful and healthy wishes for you.

Keep us updated as you're able.

Hi laney_p, thank you for asking. Last year I was pregnant after 5 years of trying, unexplained infertility and treatments, the last, of course IVF, and then HELLP came unexpected. We found no underlying conditions, and no explaination at all why HELLP happened, and why so severe.. my body recovered very well, (it is like it never happened) and after (I don't count anymore how many) other IVF trials I am pregnant again, we are just now to 18 weeks.. and today 1 day longer than yesterday :) ..

So sorry for your loss, Allexx, but I'm glad that your health care providers were able to help you pinpoint what was happening. Are you pregnant now or just considering another pregnancy?

I am not sure on vitamine B12, but I got advice on B6. Due to genetic checks I've found out that I am a carrier of MTHFR mutation; that means an increased risk of pregnancy complications -and I've been adviced to take high dose of 4 mg folic acid and vitamin B6 100 mg/ day. There are studies which associate MTHFR mutation with HELLP Syndrome. I have developed HELLP last year at 22 weeks, my baby girl died and I made it home after been in IC for a week. I am having big hopes that I take my second baby at home healthy and alive.. so I believe that if you know that one value in your blood/ body is not at the right level, just take it: if it doesn't harm the baby, can only help!! Best luck and you are not alone!!

Hi and welcome to the forums. B12 deficiency is not something I have experienced myself, but you can do a search for old posts by typing in "B12 deficiency" or "pernicious anemia" in the search box in the upper right hand corner of your screen.

I was wondering if anybody is aware of or was ever tested for a vitamin B12 deficiency?
A few years before I developed hellp I was having some weird symptoms and did research and asked my doctor to check my B12 level since it is not regularly on a cbc. It came back i have a deficiency. I was wondering if anyone else has this that they know of and if there could be a correlation
