Hello Ladies - New to the board but not to the site. Don't know if my signature will show up with the repeated miscarriages (5). My last one I made it to a heartbeat and then lost it the day after Christmas. It's taken that long for me to get my primary care physician and the referral department to get the referral to a specialist that was suggested by my OB. I'm beyond frustrated and have spent the better half of the afternoon googling "can get pregnant, just can't stay that way". I know, ultimately that I will have more of a real answer once I have seen the specialist, but considering it has taken, oh, almost 5 months and I'm not getting any younger, I just feel like crying. (Which may just be a pregnancy symptom, I won't know for another week).
I have progesterone suppositories left over from my last pregnancy and am considering starting them. I purchased baby aspirin yesterday and took one (haven't taken one today yet). Sort of taking my care into my own hands just form what I've seen successful for others because I just cannot stand having things out of my control.
My OB did blood tests, hysteroscopy to check my uterus... everything was fine. He never bothered to test my progesterone (just put me on it last time) and they only once tested my HCG levels.... I feel like I've gotten crap care and for someone who is used to fixing everything, it makes it even more frustrating.
I just want to know WHY this is happening and WHAT to do to have a baby. Not sit around and wait for the red tape to be cut as I grow older and more high risk. Thanks for listening
