    Me and my hubby-to-be have had a little talk tonight and we're going to start trying for a baby again. Is there anything i can do/take to help prevent me having a 3rd miscarriage? I'm currently taking Folic Acid and i'm also thinking about taking those pregnacare(sp?) tablets...

    Any help appreciated x

    Just wanted to say sorry for your losses :hug:There isn't anything you can do to prevent a m/c happening as you have been told its very common for women to suffer m/c even more than 1, they say that's why they don't investigate until you have had 3 or more which is ridiculous.....

    Just keep doing what you are doing taking folic acid and pregnacare vits and lots of :sex: :hug:
    Sending you lots of :dust::dust::dust:and pray you get your sticky :bfp:very soon x x x x

    Hey hun :hugs:

    Im exactly the same as you. I had 2 m/c's on the run..1 in April and the other in July, I Caught again straight after the 2nd and am now 13w 4d:happydance:

    I dont think I did anything different, other than take baby aspirin...maybe you could talk to your doc aboout it? I dont know if It helped me hang onto this baby though..supoose I'll never know.

    The best thing you can do, is stay strong and dont give up hope....you will get your sticky, like I did xxx:hug:

    Where can i buy baby aspirin? lol.

    I've decided to take Pregnacare because that contains lots minerals and vitamins so that'd be much better than just normal Folic Acid.

    You can buy it at any chemist, its actually referred to as low dose aspirin, mines 75 mg. I would recommend you either ask your doc for it or make him/her aware you are going to start taking it. I started taking it right after my m/c and was pg again 3 1/2 weeks later!

    If you do decide to take it, you will need special care if you do get caught whilst on it. I had to see my consultant at 12 weeks to discuss my options. Because I was only put on it as 'a precaution' there was no evidence it was actually keeping the pg going, BUT there was no evidence it wasnt! He said he would advise to stop taking it but he cant be 100% sure that I dont need it, so I decided to keep taking it. It doesnt harm the growing baby or you at all, so for me, was the best option.

    I went to the DR after 2 m/c and they investigated me, although, I had been TTC for a long time as well, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to go to the DR to see if there is any test they can do. Is there anything that makes you suspect it might happen again, such as, do you know if you ovulate late in your cycle (short luteal phase). If you do a few things on your own, that might help your case. Also, how long have you been TTC in total (m/c included)? This might also be a reason to get checked out. I have two kids, so some of the tests that they do, they didn't apply to me. I had been diagnosed with low progesterone right before I had my daughter, in fact, so low, they didn't think I even ovulated, and I was prescribed Clomid. I was waiting for AF to arrive, and she didn't...turns out I somehow managed to get PG with my daughter. This time around tho, not so lucky, and I have been TTC for 2 years DEC. 1, and I have gone almost 4 years without birth control. In that 2 years time actively TTC, I have lost three pregnancies. But, I also used OPK's and saw that I was ovulating late, and since I had been diagnosed before, that certainly helped my case, although they did a couple other investigations too. So, I would go to the DR and just tell them as much as you can that you know about yourself. And, then at the very least, they are aware of the problem. I have heard that taking a 3-5mg of Folic Acid can help (but only if that is the reason for the m/c). I also take Omega 3's, Vit B6, and I go on a diabetic diet (only in 2WW), and I avoid ALL caffiene-also prescribed meds of Clomid and Progesterone. These are just some things that I try to do personally, as a suggestion. I have heard that baby asprin can help, but only for women whose immune system attacks the baby (which is diagnosed by a simple blood test). This is all what my specialist told me...but, I would def see your DR. Good luck, and keep us posted. xo

    I am also in your situation. I am TTC after 2 m/c. It's scary to think "Oh I could be pregnant again" because in your mind you're really thinking "this could be the start to another m/c" I also thought about what I could take to reduce the risk of m/c but honestly I don't know either. If I could find something I would feel so much better. Talk to your doctor about what you can do, you never know they may know of something that some of us dont. To me it sounds like you are on a good start just taking the folic acid and if you were to take pregnacare than that wouldnt be a bad idea either. Im taking both folic acid and Materna prenatal. Good luck, I hope you get pregnant quick and I hope you have a sticky bean!! xx
