Second miscarriage after healthy pregnancy

I'm writing this post hoping to find some positive stories or maybe someone who went through or is going through exactly what I am. In November 2014 I gave birth to my healthy daughter. I had zero complications with pregnancy and birth. I loved every second of it. In August of 2016 we got pregnant with our second and then I miscarried in October. They said it was a blighted ovum but also my progesterone was very low at 8 weeks pregnant it was a 5. They suggested I wait 3 months to try again which was torture. So I'm February we tried again and in March I had a positive pregnancy test. They tested my levels for hcg and progesterone, everything came back awesome! Then yesterday I started some brown discharge in the morning which then turned into nonstop bleeding and insane cramps. They confirmed I was having another miscarriage at 5 weeks. I am so confused and hurt. Two miscarriages after a healthy awesome pregnancy. I feel like a complete failure and the emotional roller coaster is insane. Thank god for my awesome 2 year old to make the pain a little more tolerable.

Hi, I don't have any advice for you but you're not alone. I'm in exactly the same boat. I had our son, now 4 and half, in 2012 after a miscarriage at 5 weeks. Then we decided to try for number 2 in 2013 as I'm not young and it took us 8 months to conceive our son. I fell 1st month and couldn't believe it. Everything was great until a week before my 12 week scan. I miscarried and it was awful! Then, we tried and tried for almost 3 years now and nothing until last month, I suddenly fell pregnant again. We were ecstatic but I found out at my 7 week viability scan that there was nothing there and I was already spotting and miscarrying. I am completely distraught!! I'm almost 41 so time isn't on my side either and I just can't get over the sadness of not being able to give my son a sibling.

Anyway, just to say that you're not alone. X
