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.
Can't offer much advice, but I too am on the back of a third miscarriage (MC in Dec, chemical in Jan, and now needing a D&C in March).
I too had a normal pregnancy.. we did use IVF, but that was due to my husbands sperm, and we have been using the same embryos to try and get No2 from the cycle that produced our son. So all I can say is that we've been shocked to have so much trouble, after it seeming much more straight forward with our son.
Sorry you're going through something similar. It's not easy and takes all the fun out of trying to get pregnant, and being pregnant once you are .
I'm so sorry. No happy ending yet, but I'm in the same boat. DD is just a few months younger than your son. She was born April 2015, we started trying again March 2016 and got it first try, but MC in May, then got pg again in October, but baby had anencephaly and MC him naturally right after Christmas. Had a chemical last month that I wouldn't have known about if I hadn't tested at 10DPO. Hoping we've just had a run of bad luck and this month will be a sticker.
You're totally not alone. I have a friend who had 5 MC before having two beautiful kids, so there are happy endings.
Im so sorry for your loss hun. I had a miscarriage at 13 weeks in November after having 3 health children and pregnancies. I also had a blighted ovum in February which really added salt to the wound. I am still an emotional wreck, especially since its getting closer and closer to the due date.
I still have hope, and sometimes I struggle to remain positive but it does get better hun.
