How are you ladies fairing?
How are you ladies fairing?
@No3please , how are you going Hun? Are you trying again straight away or having a bit of a rest first? I posted this update from today on another thread.....
AFM- I had what was supposed to be my dating scan today (I'm 7+4 weeks today) and it's also the first time I've seen my Fertility Specialist since getting pregnant this time as I've been getting all of my bloods with the fertility nurses. Even though my hCG and Progesterone showed that they had both dropped with Tuesdays bloods, he decided to go ahead with the scan (he just does it in his rooms) to rule out an ectopic and there was actually still a heartbeat but it was very slow and erratic so our poor lil bub is still slowly passing away. It is several days smaller than what it should be at this stage too So I guess my actual m/c is still a little while away. My FS will scan me again if nothing has happened by Wednesday-week and then it might be time to start looking towards a D&C. I asked if I could try naturally and he was happy enough for me to wait some more , specially as there was still a little bit of a heartbeat This sucks, I SO wish this could've been our healthy take home bub Onto IVF it is....we're going to try a low dose of steroids and blood thinners with the next ( hopeful !) pregnancy to see if that might prevent a 4th loss in a row.
Hi Lady, I'm going ok. FS wants karyotype testing done to see if chromosomes are playing a part in our recurring miscarriages. Hcg is 55, so still coming down but I've definitely done my thing
I feel horrible for you going through this, such a long and horrible experience
Yeah, hubby and I both had that tested while we were still TTC our dd...I think it's definitely a good idea , just to rule any problems like that out. When our 11week m/c bub came back as having a Trisomy 13 problem, it was heartbreaking but a relief to know that it was a 1-in-10,000 bad luck thing and not hereditary from either if us. Wishing you the very best of luck!
I still think our first and this eventual third loss is more than likely from chromosome problems too though as all three bub have seemed to be burrowed nice and deep into my nice think lining and as all 3 are/were missed m/c with not a drop of blood until they actually pass away.....makes me feel that the problem isn't that my body can't carry them, just that they aren't healthy embryos to begin with So I'll give IVF a go to see if growing them in a Petri dish for 5 days before only putting the very best looking one back in HOPEFULLY weeds out the not so healthy ones and gives us a chance of getting a sticky take home bub?! Worth a try anyway.....I think I'd regret not at least trying. This will be my last or second last loss though before I csll it a day and give up Just incas it might be a high natural killer cell problem, my FS is going to look into trying me on a low dose of steroids and blood thinners next (hopeful) pregnancy to see if that helps too.
