TTC After a Loss

2 healthy kids followed by 3 miscarriages

I have a 5 year old and 18 month old. I'm 25, 150lbs with no medical conditions. I've lost 3 pregnancies before 9 weeks in the last 8 months. All basic testing has been normal. Currently waiting for karyotyping and a saline ultrasound. Any suggestions? I'm waiting to get in to the specialist.

  • brittneybaby3  First, just FYI, we TW mentions of living children on this board.  Also, I'm very sorry for your losses. RPL is very difficult to deal with. Getting the tests done is about the best that you can do, because it will help rule out the easy/obvious complications. However, please keep in mind that 50-75% of RPL sufferers will end up with unexplained RPL (my current situation). The good news is that of that 50-75%, approximately 60% of us will go on to conceive without medical intervention. So don't give up hope. If you were able to conceive 2 children, then the odds are in your favor.
  • I'm in the same boat, 2 kids with no problems and now we've been trying for almost 2 years with 2 miscarriages. Just know you're not alone and your feelings are completely valid.This group is great, welcome.

  • Similar situation here, one easy pregnancy and now two miscarriages before ten weeks and a couple chemical pregnancies in there. Also waiting on some DNA testing. I’m so sorry for your losses! This sucks and I hope we all get some helpful answers!

    I am lurking but found this thread and curious if anyone went on to have a healthy pregnancy. *tw* I have 2 beautiful boys ages 6 and 4 and have been TTC #3 for the last year with 3 MC.  Not sure where our journey will take us, but good to know we are not alone.
  • jd614  I know that dpjennifer went on to have a 5th MC in January of this year.  So no, we don't all go on to have a healthy pregnancy... in fact some of us NEVER get a healthy pregnancy.
  • @jd614 We've had a lot of women come on this board with 1 loss and move on with a successful pregnancy. We've also had women with RPL on this board that have moved on with a successful pregnancy. And then we've had women like myself, (and @dpjennifer and a few others)who  are still here. Bitter and defeated.
