There's a couple of things I have been curious about. When you're pregnant you are suppose to be careful of what you eat and drink because it goes to the baby. Is it possible for the baby to have an allergic reaction to something you eat or drink? I always hear about women having a miscarriage and they don't know why. I also wonder if doctors ever run a test on the fetus to figure out what happened.

I don't think they devolop allergic reactions until after birth.
Second, Miscarriages are very common, especially during the first trimester(2-12 weeks) and most due to chromosomial defects(I believe) so they don't even test or worry about pregnancies until after you've had three in a row.

They will run tests on the baby if they can. I toften doesn't yield many results though. The othe rposter is correct tha t*most& single time losses are related to spontaneous chromosomal issues,., but recurrent losses have many different causes & chromosomal issues make up a small portion of the possible reasons (things liek thyroid disorders, undiagnosed diaetes, clotting disroders, tubal or uterine abnormalities, you name it). There are a TON of tests they do if you have recurrent loss. Most are blood tests for mom though.
