This has felt like a long journey. TTC for 2 years. Started seeing a RE last Nov. Got pregnant in Jan of this year for the first time with an iui. It was heterotopic. I miscarried the one in my uterus at almost 6 weeks and the other was ectopic. I had to have surgery and my right tube was removed.
We've been trying with just timed intercourse since then and I started acupuncture in May. We saw that my uterine lining wasn't thickening enough and I can no longer take Clomid. Acupuncture helped. Things had been feeling more hopeful.
Last week I took a beta at 12 dpo and it came back at 8. 48 hrs later it was 28. Another 48 hrs later and I had some cramping and light spotting with 2 little blood clots (dark brown). That beta came back at only 31. Saw my RE the next day took another beta and did u/s. U/s showed that the uterus looked thick, no fluids or bleeding, and no masses. Still too early to see a sac. The beta from that day came back at 37. Today, 48 hrs later, beta is at 20. We are heartbroken and have no idea why I keep miscarrying so early (today makes it 4 weeks 6 days). I haven't started bleeding yet but I'm sure it's inevitable.
I need some advice on what questions to ask my Dr. I know that most people never find out why their mc happens but are there some things I should be looking at?
I'm 36. 37 in December. Had hyperthyroidisn in my 20's. Went into remission about 8 or 9 yrs ago. Recently in the last year, it's switched over to hypothyroidism. I'm on medication and it's being monitored. Other than that, I'm healthy. We've done some genetic testing and neither of us have anything we really need to worry about. I do have low ovarian reserves but my egg quality is good.
It's heartbreaking to lose again and I have no idea how I'll be if it happens a 3rd time. We just can't even get to the stage of hearing a heartbeat. If anyone has any advice or knows of any good questions I should keep in mind when I go in to my next appointment, I'd really appreciate it.
