Are you super-fertile?

I have a new outlook on life today.

The reason…?
A recent study on recurrent miscarriage that has turned the whole theory of maternal rejection on its head.

Results from a new study now indicate that, rather than some women being prone to rejecting healthy embryos, these women might instead be more conductive for inplanting embryos – healthy and unhealthy.

These ‘super receptive’ women therefore often have multiple miscarriages.

I’m sadly one of those women that sits firmly in the recurrent miscarriage corner. I’ve sat through all the tests and stared back at the blank doctors faces who have no concrete answer for you. Every time it was ‘just one of those things’, or an explanation with the word ‘abnormality’ in it (I’ve never really heard the rest of those sentences… despite hearing them many times).

This study however, gives me some sort of closure on every one of those losses. It gives me a reason, gives me an answer, and allows me to view every pregnancy, not as a loss, but rather that I was giving every single baby its very best chance.
