    Default two miscarriages help

    Hello,
    I have just had my second miscarriage in the past few months and very sadly both my pregnancies came to an end in the 7th pregnancy week. The first miscarriage(June 07) my gynae saw the heartbeat at 6 weeks but a week later I miscarried and the second miscarriage(August 0/) has just happened so I am feeling emotionally weak and keep asking the question why? Both times the miscarriage has happened naturally at home and I had a regular period inbetween these.

    I gave birth to my healthy son in feb 05 and had a very straight forward pregnancy and so am confused on what is happening now.My gynae has said to go back in a months time for some tests.

    I have never had morning sickness in any pregnancies and wonder if this is because my hormones levels are too low.Me and my husband both have blood groups O negative.
    My questions are.... which tests I should be asking for and any possible causes or advice.
    Thankyou in advance for sharing any thoughts with me

    I'm sorry for your loss. After 3 early m/c's I have done lots of research. One thing I did come across was that most women who have had 1 or 2 miscarriages and are under 35 will go on to have a healthy baby without any treatment at all. I think that's why most doctors wont start to investigate m/c's until you've had 3, but some will. If however you are over 35 (like me) then you have around a 50/50 chance with each pregnancy.

    I am in the investigation stage at the moment but my gyno thinks the last two were caused by what looks like a fibroid and I am waiting for a lap to have this dealt with.

    You can't judge anything by the lack of morning sickness or other symptoms as some women don't get it at all and go on to have healthy babies. In my last short lived pregnancy my symptoms were quite strong compared to other ladies that were just finding out they were pregnant but my HCG levels turned out to be low and I m/c but those ladies are still pregnant.

    There is a thread on here somewhere that tells you what tests to ask for, I suggest you have a read of it.

    Hello Sunflower- I have also had 2 m/c this year, one at 6 weeks in Jan and one at 12 weeks in July but I waited to m/c naturally (it was a missed m/c) and am just m/c now, so it was a long wait. I totally understand your confusion, especially if you had a child easily before. It is a real shock and rarely makes sense to anyone. Try not to beat yourself up over it as there may not be a specific reason for them to occur. Most women never know why it happens to them. I never expected it once, let alone twice. I'm healthy and my DF is also very healthy. We've had his blood checked to see that all his chromosomes are normal. You can ask for that test for you and your DH, although I think it cost around $500. I'm going to have that test done when this m/c is over. The other test you will be able to find on another thread as Satya said. Have you been onto the TTCAML thread? It's worth popping into if you want to chat to women that have been through m/c. I hope that wasn't too long and boring and you found it a bit useful.

    Cheers,
    EMs

    Hi Sunflower
    Take heed that you are not alone! I have had 3 m/c's after a very easy, healthy pregnancy with my son. There is no explanation for the first two but the third I had tests and there was a chromosomal abnormality with the baby. It is nothing that you have done it is just the matching of egg and sperm and mother nature that takes care of the rest. They did LOTS of tests on me, including the chomosome tests for hubby and I all of which came back normal. Clotting factors was the big one they looked at for me and I do take 100mg of asprin once a week. I am also seeing a reflexologist who specialises in fertility and she got my cycle back in order. I left it up to my Gynae to tell me what tests I needed done and also spoke to my GP about it all and she was very cofident that everything that needed to be covered was covered. And here I am 15 1/2 weeks pregnant.... so far so good!
    Take care of yourself and DH!
