Hi, I'm very new here and after our difficult year a friend suggested I join to help cope with what we are going through.
So this year my husband and I have lost our two little boys. The first was in Jan, and our second was just recently on 11 Sept. We are devastated.
In both pregnancies I made it to 16 wks, but then went into labour and lost the babies. Apart from the pain I was experiencing for 2 days prior, both babies looked well until I miscarried.
After testing etc. the drs have discovered that I am getting infections in my uterus which then have then turned to septicemia. The infections irritate my uterus and trigger labour. The problem is that apart from some minor bleeding prior to the MC, I don't have any symptoms of infection leading up to the MCs. The bacteria I tested positive for is also a normal type that we all carry in our vaginas, respiratory system and teeth. Somehow it is getting out of control and is creating problems in my uterus and blood stream. I also ended up with pneumonia after the first MC.
Sorry for the long-winded post. I'm just trying to see if anyone else has had a similar experience? I'm a few weeks away from hearing more info from the drs about how this could be prevented in the future and would love to know if anyone's had some success. Thank you!
