So sorry to hear about your third loss. I can only imagine what you and your DH are going through. I've seen you on the infertility boards - please feel free to get in touch with me if you want to vent or need someone to listen.
Thinking of you as you try to move forward on your journey.
Hi all! I've been looking around the boards and unfortunately I already know some of you from the infertility team. I'm sad this team even exists, but here I am...
I just had my third miscarriage this weekend. We've been TTC for 2½ years now. First 15 cycles nothing happened. Then we started the IF-workup. I found out I was pregnant in the middle of it, so the clinic cancelled the rest and just wished us good luck. That pregnancy ended in a missed miscarriage at 9 weeks. The embryo had stopped growing at around 7 weeks. I had to have a D&C.
We went back to the fertility clinic and found out the results. Apart from my endometriosis dx (that I already knew about) they also diagnosed my husband with MFI. They told us to try on our own for another 6 months before coming back for a possible IUI.
About 6 months later, I fell pregnant again. I spotted all the time, but no one took me seriously when I talked to Dr:s about it. At 6w5d I started bleeding and we went to the ER. The ultrasound showed a perfect embryo of the right size with a good heartbeat. They told me the bleeding would probably stop and everything would be fine. Well, just a few hours later, it was all over. Again.
Then it took us another 6 months to get a positive pregnancy test now in January. This time I had done a lot of research and I did everything I could. I ate baby aspirin, vit. C, D and E. I had an early scan at 6w4d that showed an embryo measuring just 5w5d with a slow heartbeat. The dr was optimistic and thought I had just calculated the ov. date wrong, but I knew I hadn't and at that point I just knew it was doomed. And I did miscarry AGAIN at 8 weeks.
I'm so tired of this. This time it was very hard on my husband as well. We were so sure it would work out this time, but it didn't.
We now have a referral to RPL testing, finally. It's a 3 month waiting list, but it doesn't matter since it's very unlikely for us to get pregnant again before that. Now I'm anxious to find the results of the testing. I want an explanation, but at the same time I don't. What if it's something that can't ever be treated? What if we don't get any answers and I will just keep on miscarrying once every year until I turn 40? This is not a fun situation to be in.
