TTC After a Loss


Hello! Just wanted to introduce myself. MH and I conceived naturally (1st pregnancy) in November. We got a BFP on Dec 25 - everything was typical. I had a MMC 2/1 and D&C on 2/7. The past month has been an emotional journey for both of us, but now we are at a place where we are ready to TTC. 

Basically, my mood is haywire, which leads me to believe I'm going to see AF in the next few days, which is exciting at this point because we really want to begin trying ASAP. My doc (at our D&C follow up) gave us the all clear to start trying once AF comes - so we've been anxiously awaiting. 

I elected to get genetic pathology after my D&C (basically, my insurance covered it 100%, so what not?). To everybody's surprise, there was no genetic abnormality - which is not what we were hoping for. My doctor referred me to a Reproductive Endocrinologist to test both MH's and my Chromosomes as well as check me out for any autoimmune or coagulation disorders that may have been the cause of this loss. It's really kind of nerve wracking, since I have no idea what could have caused this and I'm afraid it will happen again. Have any of you been in the same boat before?

    Welcome to the group.  I’m sorry for your loss.   I have not been in that situation.  I’m older so they assume my losses have been due to my age.  I didn’t have any testing until my 3rd one which two sperm fertilized giving it a full set of extra male chromosomes.   That was my last loss which was December 2017.  I haven’t been pregnant since.  Hopefully there is nothing wrong and you will move on shortly with a healthy pregnancy

    Hey there! I'm new here too!

    I'm so sorry for your loss :( I am in a similar situation.. I had a MC and had it tested to reveal no genetic abnormalities, which made the loss feel so much worse. I'm also going through a bunch of testing (Bloodwork, Saline Sono, and biopsy) And everything has come back mostly okay except the biopsy revealed I had inflammation of the endometrium. I definitely understand about being scared about having no answers and worrying it might happen again... It really sucks! I can't offer you much in the way of things to make you feel better or cope since I'm trying to figure that out myself...But if you want, we could definitely talk more about it ^^

    Welcome to the group and I'm sorry you find yourself here. Unfortunately many women never find out the cause of miscarriages. But the good news is, most women will go on to have a successful pregnancy after their loss. I'm not one of those cases but I've seen a lot of women come and go on this board. I hope your stay is short.
