@Reina83 - oh no I'm so so sorry to read about your loss! The biggest of hugs to you Xxx
I had 4 losses in a row during 2014 and after a bottle (or two) of wine after each one, I found the only way I could move forward was to go into total research mode so I could come up with a bunch of questions or suggestions for my follow up FS appointment.....are you the same?? Have you got a diagnosis for your 8 losses? As I'm sure you know, 8 is not "normal". One or even two could be considered pretty normal but....not 8! Have you had D&C's for any of your losses? Have you had an Hysteroscopy since to check for Ashermans Syndrome or polyps or other uterine problems? Have you had an MRI to check for Adenomyosis? Have you been checked for High Natural Killer Cells?? There are three very informative threads right here on BH about all of these conditions. When you started bleeding this cycle, and knowing your history of loss.....what did your FS instruct you to do or take? Anything or....the useless "let's wait and see" approach?
What about supplements to improve egg/ sperm/ lining quality??
My FS (who us now my Ob) doesn't know that I was also seeing and actually following 100% Dr Warren (Wazza) DeAmbrosis drug plan this cycle for the first time. I wanted to go 100% Wazza but had already started this cycle with my current FS so I did this awkward half'n'half thing before I was moving my frozen embryos to Wazza's rooms next cycle. My very first Progesterone results came back at 10.7(!!!!) which is ridiculously low. My clinic likes it above 60 but minimum 30. I read that once it gets to 6 or 7, that's when your body triggers a period. Anyway, my current FS was not in the least concerned and told me to add an extra 200mg progesterone pessary a day which would take me from 400mg/ day to 600mg/day. Had I just done that, I would've had a chemical pregnancy FOR SURE. Wazza on the other hand immediately bumped me up to 1000mg pessaries/day, 80mg Provera/day, 1ml of progesterone in oil intra-muscular injection per day. Four days later, my Progesterone was 67. When I started bleeding at Christmas time, my current FS did seem concerned but only suggested not DTD. Wazza on the other hand (who was on his holidays) immediately called my nearest chemist and gave them a verbal prescription for me to start on 4x2 tablets of Cykloprakton per day and three 1/2 tablets of Valium (Diazapam) to stop uterine contractions as I was also getting belly tightenings and deferred pain in my lower back and upper thighs. He then gave his nurse his personal mobile number for me to immediately call him so he could give me strict instructions that I was to be on complete bed rest.....only get up to go to the loo then straight back to bed or couch. He said not to stand up long enough to even make myself some toast! If you ever read any of his "appreciation" thread here on BH, you'll see that there have been other ladies in similar positions who either now have their bubs in their arms or are just about to .....and they all followed their own versions of his strict instructions as he is such a pro- active specialist......none of this "let's wait and see and hope for the best" business! Im not saying he is the only specialist in Australia who is pro-active in multiple loss but......I hope you've got yourself a specialist who is taking your history ***very*** seriously and who is prepared to throw absolutely everything at your next BFP because f@rk, enough is a freak'n enough!!! There only so much absolute heart break a person can take There is obviously an actual problem that needs to be first diagnosed and then treated, monitored and controlled so that this never ever happens to you again I'm so ****ed off and heart broken for you Xxx
@ Reina83, i am so sorry this has happened to you yet again What an awfully cruel blow by mother nature. She really needs a swift kick into gear.
I hope with time you can get some answers and hopefully a super sticky take home bubba. You more than deserve to snuggle your own little one.
Please rest up and take your time, i hope to see you back here as soon as you are ready.
