Hi ladies! I had no idea this board even existed so I am very happy to have found it. I haven't done any lurking yet but have been active first on TTGP then TTCAL and a little on PGAL during the brief recent pregnancies I've had. My history is pretty much summed up in my siggy. Just last week I went for a first ultrasound and was told they couldn't see a fetal pole. I was supposed to be 6 w 5 d. I have a follow up u/s scheduled for Tue but I definitely don't have my hopes up at all. My betas are rising but way, way slow and were only at 2,364 Monday when I had the u/s.
I actually had my first RE appointment the day I got this recent BFP so I was able to talk to him in terms of what to do to try to save this pregnancy. I have been on progesterone supplements since that time 12 DPO since last time we tested my progesterone and found that it was EXTREMELY low. We tested my thyroid this time too since last time it also came back out of whack. But it came back at 2.5 which he said was within normal range.
So at this point I don't know if my recurrent losses are only due to poor egg quality due to my age or if there is something else gong on in terms of maybe immunological changes, just that I didn't start progesterone supplements soon enough, or maybe some scarring in my ute I don't know about. This time around I will probably opt for a D C so we could do testing if it would be valuable. After that I would be having an AMH test. Does this looks at egg quality?? So do they see the actual eggs or just looking at the follies??. I will also have an HSG. Can they tell if there is built up scarring or polyps by doing that or does it just look at shape of ute and blockage in tubes?
Well thanks for reading my long intro. Look forward to getting to know you all. I am really hoping to connect with some others in my situation of secondary recurrent loss. Please say hello and share your journey!
I wish none of us were going through this struggle but am glad to have found this board.
PS I bump from my phone most of the time so please forgive spelling and punctuation and know that I unfortunately can't see siggys. Grrrr I hate the mobile now!
