I was devastated, especially when I had my second one. I've had 3 miscarriages, and I definitely wanted answers. I just recently learned that I have MTHFR and some other clotting factors, which *may* be the cause of my miscarriages. It's nice to know what's going on with my body, but it doesn't guarantee a healthy pregnancy in the future.

I've had two miscarriages and one chemical pregnancy. With all of them I was very upset and concerned that I would never have another baby. I'm now 36 weeks pregnant with my second daughter. I'm sorry for your loss.

I just remember feeling so empty and guilty with myself no matter that other told me it was just a chromosomal defect. I felt.like there was something wrong with me and I was a basket case full of emotions esp when about 4 weeks later I got another postive pregnancy test and.hadn't started my period yet. I was so scared the same thing was going.g to happen and I felt like I was forgetting about my other baby. But when I think about the one I MC with in the back of my head something wasn't right, and with the second pregnancy well I'm 28 weeks 4 days. But it was definitely a roller coaster!

That's how I felt with my last. I didn't even cry. It's becoming routine. I expect a pregnancy to end in miscarriage now. So glad you're getting your rainbow baby!

thats how it was for me
when they were running all of the tests on me it was like "for what? i just cant have anymore babies, i suck." then we figured it out.
im still nervous at 36+5 days.



did your dr's suggest progesterone for you?
that in combo with lovenox/aspirin is what is giving me my rainbow baby.
i hope you get yours soon, too.

Yeah, they'll start progesterone after I get pregnant, but by then it may be too late, so I use the cream after ovulation. I'm taking aspirin now and will switch to Lovenox as soon as I get pregnant (if I ever get pregnant).

I was heartbroken, but I clung to my faith. It 100% completely got me through it.

i always started testing really early, though. like 5dpo. i got a bfp at 8dpo and started the progesterone right away, along with lovenox.
have you talked to them about clomid?
they gave me a low dose on cd 4-7 and i ovulated 3 healthy/mature eggs and was knocked up.

No, we haven't discussed Clomid.

This.



I prayed my heart out with my last pregnancy, and you know what? It still ended in miscarriage. I think it's wonderful that some people can keep the faith, but that's something I'm struggling with.

Damn right I want answers!
I'm still coping with my second loss. It happened 4 days after DH left, so I've been extremely vulnerable without him here.
I have come to the conclusion though, that I get pregnant again, no matter how it ends I'm getting my tubes tied. With or without having another baby. I've told DH but he seems to skirt around telling me how he feels about it.
I'd be ok with just Heathen, but we still would love to have another one. But , it would be the third time actually trying. I can't even stand to think of it happening again.

Well when you got answers, was it satisfying? I mean did it help in the whole "wtf is wrong with me?" or did it hurt more knowing why?
