3 early losses back to back. Need your success stories to give me some hope..


Hi everyone,

I'm going through what is likely to be my third early loss (between 5-6 weeks) in a matter of 5 months. Each loss follows the same pattern.. BFP around 10dpo and up until the time AF is due (yes I'm one of those that keeps testing to make sure), then the cramping starts, BFPs gradually fade and I get my 'period' around a week late. Right now I'm at the cramping/fading BFP stage with my 3rd successive pregnancy and although it's early (I can't imagine what it must be like to lose a baby later on in pregnancy ) I feel crushed.. I feel incredibly blessed to have a beautiful 2 year old son but I feel like I may never be able to complete my family..

GP is going to refer me for recurrent loss investigations if this one goes the way I suspect it will.. In the meantime can anyone give me any hope? Hearing your success stories after several losses is exactly what I need right now

Thank you..

Emma

I had 4 prior to having my son, similar story to yours, all testing came back ok and the only suggestion was to take baby aspirin after BFP, did the trick. DS is now 5 and DD is 4 (conceived when DS was 6 months as we assumed it would be a similar challenge to conceive #2!)

So sorry to hear this , I hope you're wrong and baby holds on- my story goes like this

Dd
Ds
Dd (died at 5 days old)
Dd
Ds
Ds (18 week loss)
Dd
Dd (15 week loss)
5 week loss
5 week loss
Twins (one lost at 7 weeks, the other born healthy)

So for me, all my pregnancy losses seemed to happen in one go. The last 4 happened within 6 months. Im not sure what was going on- just kept being told I was unlucky, I took Asprin in my last pregnancy and although we lost 1 baby, I have a beautiful little girl from that pregnancy. Always have hope x

Thank you for sharing your happy endings ladies and so sorry to hear of your losses.

LoraLoo - I can only imagine what it must be like to carry a baby to term and then to lose them You must be made of some seriously tough stuff to carry on in the face of that kind of heartbreak- I am in awe of your strength..

I hear a lot about baby aspirin and also progesterone supplements on these forums; neither of which have even been mentioned by my GP as an option.. I'm not sure if this is because I'm in the UK and isn't our first line of treatment/prevention?

Ah thank you. Losing Eve is the worst thing I've ever been through but I'm still here, somehow xx

I'm in the uk too, I don't think they do the whole progesterone supplements here- not as standard anyways. However, the baby aspirin was recommended to me by the consultant and gp after my first loss on the basis that 'it won't do any harm, and may do some good'

All my tests came back fine ( we never got as far as attending the recurrent mc clinic as thankfully the last pregnancy was successful) but it was still advised to me, as well as higher dose folic acid (prescription only) which i also took in my last pregnancy.

I can't say if the aspirin helped, but I think it's worth a try and I'm very surprised it's not been mentioned to you x

Hi hun, I've just gone through my 3rd back to back loss since July which was ectopic and I lost my tube, big hugs being sent to you. My gp has also referred me to the rmc which I'm awaiting the appointment, neither baby aspirin or progesterone have being mentioned to me either, I've being tempted to buy natural progesterone cream and baby aspirin myself, but I'm such a worrier. So I don't have my success story yet, but I wanted to send many xxx

It's so tempting isn't it?! You seem to get more information trawling the internet and speaking to other women who have experienced MCs than you do from your own doctor, its crazy. I have been seriously tempted with the baby aspirin but then I wouldn't know when to start/stop and I'm worried I'd get a right rollicking from my consultant when I am finally referred! I'm so sorry for your losses too.. mine have all been within a similar time frame (September to present) and the repeated heartbreak is awful. I hope we both get our happy ending.. please keep us updated with your referral? Sending hugs to you too xxx

It seems theres regional variation as well as a bit of a split in professional opinion with regards to the baby aspirin? It just adds to the confusion. Are you currently expecting LoraLoo? I've just read Eve's story and am sat here typing through very bleary eyes- you are an inspirationally strong woman xxx

Thank you for sharing her story- may her legacy live on in the awareness you have raised.. She was beautiful and I'm sure you carry her with you in your heart every single day.

Congratulations on the recent arrival of your youngest xxx
