Worried about repeated MMC


I don't know if I really fit in here or not. I have a nearly 4yr old son and a 1yr old daughter. I had a MMC between them, immediately before we conceived our daughter. I am mow expecting baby #4. I knew from the moment I got my BFP with my mmc that something was wrong, largley because of my lack of symptoms. I'd had all the usual with my son and pretty severe sickness but I had nothing. I spent weeks researching miscarriages, found out about missed miscarriages and was certain that was what I was having. I told my partner I was worried and got the usual, "I'm sure it'll all be fine". In fact I also got the same response from my best friend. I didn't tell my midwife my concerns because I knew it would fall on deaf ears. By the time I went for the 12wk US I had decided which treatment option I wanted. And sure enough, there was a tiny baby, with no hb. It had stopped growing at around 7wks. I just laid on the US table crying and saying, "I knew it. I knew there was something wrong. I knew it."
We conceived our daughter the cycle immediately after the bleeding had stopped and apart from some episodes of reduced movement and a couple of scans which showed her growth was going down she picked herself back up right at the end and was born at 40+1 weighing a healthy 7lbs 1oz.
And that brings me to this pregnancy. And again I have this sense of doom. I've talked about it on the First Tri board but obviously it is an upsetting topic.
There is some confusion surrounding my dates (I put myself at about 9wks but because of my strange last period the Doc I saw yesterday thinks it's possible I could have been expecting then. I have my first MW appt on Tuesday and the Doc said she thinks I might be sent for a dating scan to make sure I'm not further along than I thought. And I honestly don't WANT a scan because I feel so sure it's going to be bad news again. And I know there is no way of knowing and it's no good delaying the inevitable if that is what's going on... I just... I don't know. I guess I just feel so out of control. I was just hoping for a bit of support I guess.

I'm so sorry you had to go through that. I had a very similar experience with my last pregnancy (mc and D&C). I just found out I was pregnant again a few days ago. I feel more confident this time, but am so very nervous about it happening again.

I have no idea how to make it easier, but I just wanted to say you aren't alone.

Same here ladies.
Pregnant again after 4 losses back to back. Last MC in November. Recently diagnosed with high NK cells and clotting disorder.
Really didn't think I would be pregnant again just yet as we have never conceiveid this fast We only started trying in May. I can't believe I am here!
Just taking it a day at a time. But despite all the medication i can't see a happy ending just yet. Hoping I will later on. Time will tell

Trying, good luck. How far along are you? I am 5&6 after 4 losses (3 miscarriages and one chemical). I have one DD also.

I have slightly elevated NK cells although no explanation re why my DD was born fine and OH has high DNA fragmentation which leads to chromosomal issues with embryos. Second and third was definitely chromosomal (second was always behind and third had trisomy 21). I am not feeling hopeful.

Hi sweet Kat.
I am only 4+5 so it's mega early days still. Found out last Wednesday at 11dpo.
Same as me I've had 3MMC and one chemical.
With NK cells the levels can vary from cycle to cycle. So you probably conceived your DD on a cycle where they were low, indicating a good environment for the pregnancy to take place.
I only had our third loss tested and that was normal. My second was a Blighted Ovum and that may have been chromosomal
Which meds are you on?
I'm on clexane 20mg once daily, prednisolone 20mg once a day and 200mg cyclogest (progesterone) twice a day

I am not on any medication, as I think all my losses were due to bad luck/ OH's sperm fragmentation. The last two were definitely chromosomal.

I am only 5&5, found out at just over 3 weeks so I have known for ages.... Time is going so slowly

Hi ladies. Thanks for the input. It's nice just to know I'm not the only one. I'm not the sort of person that can just bury my head in the sand when something may wrong so I tend to dwell on it instead.
Had my MW appt today and they aren't too worried about the dates being too out. They've put me at the upper end of what I think though so they've put 10wks on my file. So should have the routine scan in a couple of weeks.

Trying I hope these early days go easy on you. It's so hard not to worry isn't it, especially after experiencing a MMC. The idea that it can have gone so utterly wrong and your body not know is terrifying. I try to keep in mind that MMC are rare. So hard when you read so many horror stories from so many ladies though.

Sweet kat the early days do always seem to drag don't they?

Ahhh sounds like they may have been bad luck for sure.
Wishing all the luck Sweet Kat.
Yeah I was 3+6 when I found out but only 11dpo as i ovaulate later.
This time is going to drag.
Really hoping all this medication will be worth it.
Finally did a clexane injection this evening that didn't hurt 😊

You are drfinatley not alone here at all. PAL is so so difficult.
good that your scan will be soon. Hoping the time passes quickly for you. Mine is two weeks today. I will be 6+6. So just to check if anything is there I guess and what the situation is.
Thank you. I hope I manage ok. MMC is awful. Two of mine weee MMC but luckily as I get extra scans I found out before 12 weeks. They are very rare but mine were obv caused by my medical conditions.
Symptom wise I just need to pee more than usual but unsure if it's an infection? I go a lot but pee tiny amounts sometimes. Especiallly at night. Feel quite tired today and boobs sore, would say def a lot sorer than they are before AF.
I think sickness kicked in around 6 weeks last time but never really went up a notch before next scan which told me something was wrong. So will see what haooens this time

How are you doing girls? I am 6&2. Have had quite bad MS for the last few days (although have just woken up and am ok).

Not been for a scan as last time had a good scan at 8 weeks and no hb at 10&2. So I am just assuming it's another miscarriage unless I have a good 12 week scan, although I am sure I will worry after that too.

I have known for 3 weeks and one day....
