Yes, I'm seeing an MFM as well as my OB, I am taking LDA. They just said that ANA positive without any other factors and all other normal blood work could be mean that I will develop some sort of disease or problem down the road, or it could mean nothing at all. They said it's not a test typically done on "healthy" people with no cause for testing, so it's hard to know the exact numbers but that many healthy people just test positive for it. It's just frustrating because I got pre-e, one week later my son passed away, two days later they tell me I test positive for ANA...and yet they tell me all of these things are completely unrelated. I have two wonderful and caring doctors that I am seeing, but it's just hard to accept so many things happening together that are all unrelated and yet all have such low odds of happening to me. I guess I will find it all more believable if this rainbow baby comes home safe and sound and I avoid pre-e.

Our first child, Peyton Mark, was born sleeping at 33 weeks on Oct. 25th 2011. Developed pre-e at 32 weeks.
Pregnant again with what I pray is our rainbow baby, due Oct. 14th 2012. Will induce labor no later than 38 weeks if we make it that far!
