Hi! My name is Jody, 36. My husband, Bryan is 34. We have 2 girls who are 7 & 8 1/2. We have been TTC #3 since July 2007. We became pregnant with both of our girls our 1st month of not trying/not preventing. So, we thought #3 would be just as easy. Boy were we wrong! When we did get pregnant, we would miscarry. I went through many different doctors who told me it was "just bad luck". It didn't make sense. How was it possible for us to get pregnant so easy with the girls & not now? I did so many tests, my tubes are clear, SA says DH has super sperm, etc. We are both "normal" I was put on clomid & unmonitored for a couple of years. Just, here I put in another order for clomid for you, good luck. The last pregnancy I had (via our 1st IUI) seemed like it ended just the same as the others, I started bleeding in the 4-5 1/2 week range. I passed a sac just like the other 3 miscarriages I had. My numbers dropped, etc. A week and a half later, we went to a water park. I contracted a UTI while there. I felt pain on my right side & thought the UTI was going to my kidneys. So I called to ask if I could get some antibiotics. They wanted to also check my HCG numbers. My numbers went back up. They ordered an u/s & found that I had an ectopic. This is a rare case called a heterotopic pregnancy-1 in the uterus & 1 is ectopic. So, I lost babies #4 & 5. I gave up TTC for a while, I became very depressed. A year ago, I found a new OBGYN who is known for helping women with multiple miscarriages get pregnant & carry to term. I had a new hope & we got back on the TTC wagon. He ran more tests & found that I have 2 blood clotting disorders (MTHFR & PIA-1 4G/4G). He is sure that to keep from miscarrying again, I will need to start blood thinners when I become pregnant again. We have done several rounds of clomid & 2 IUI's with him. My last cycle was a "holiday" cycle per drs. orders. So, we did nothing. Not even charting. Today started my new cycle. I am waiting for instructions on what we are going to do. We were to the point of me taking clomid & then I would do estrogen draws daily until I ovulated. So, I am sure we will be back on a similar plan. I do have a blog that is very detailed on my journey, I am unable to post it until I have 10 posts though. So, let me know if you are interested in reading it & I'll get it to you now. I will post it later when I'm able to. I hope to find some new friends & be as helpful as possible. Good Luck to all of you!
