Hi ladies,
First of all I want to say how sorry I am that any of us are finding ourselves here. It really is the worst. I am coming over from the March '17 group. We found out at our 9w scan that the baby's heart and growth stopped a few days after our 7w scan.  
I have experienced two losses in the past four months, with a chemical pregnancy between the two. I am 29 and DH is 31. We have been trying for over a year and this last cycle we got pregnant through IUI. I am just devastated to lose another pregnancy. Sometimes I wonder if we will ever get to start a family. I have Hashimoto's and have been doing lots of research and found out that my endocrinologist did not follow standard protocol for TSH levels in pregnancy. So I have a lot of anger at the moment. I question if this is a factor.

I go for my D&C tomorrow, which will be the first time I have one. We are getting the cytogenics done to determine if it was a chromosomal issue. Of course there may be no way to ever know.
I feel good knowing my OB is referring me to a high risk OB before trying to get pregnant again and that my RE is going to be meeting with us for a new plan of action once we get our test results back. My OB mentioned really working to get my thyroid under control before trying again (I thought it WAS under control bc I was seeing a dr who specializes in that, but apparently not....) Really trying to stay positive for a better outcome next time. 

Thanks for letting me share my story/vent about my health.

  • @Sugargirl1019 & @JDW0325 thanks ladies. I went in yesterday and all went well. dealing w. Cramps and a sore throat. The anesthesia did a number on me (dizziness for hours and nausea) but I'm better today. Sorry again for your losses.
