I have started this thread for those who are suffering with recurrent miscarriages. Whether it has been a couple or several losses in a row, or losses between babies, this is a safe place where we can share our stories and find support. One miscarriage is hard enough but to suffer many is heartbreaking
I am feeling quite lost at the moment and would love to chat to others who are in or have been in similar situation

Surely I can't be the only one who suffers from recurrent miscarriage or multiple losses

Hi, I had 2 miscarriages before DD1. The first I was 8 weeks, 2nd I was 13 weeks. The reason remains unknown, my DD2 is a result of IVF. During the fertilization process it was identified that I had 3 times the "usual" amount of embryos showing abnormal growth, perhaps this was the reason for my miscarriages?
It was a very dark and painful part of my life, I struggled deeply for quite some time, I do consider those 2 miscarriages as my babies that became angels before I could meet them.

Thanks for your response Smyles, I have 1 beautiful baby and have had 6 m/c all early. All unexplained which is very frustrating. We have been told IVF may be our next step to screen the embryos but there is still no certainty that will prevent a miscarriage.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It must be so frustrating to not have any answers.
The IVF process gave us a teensy clue as to why I "may" have miscarried & the reason for our secondary infertility.
Have you & your partner had genetic testing? We had this to rule out a possibility of our genes being incompatible.

We have had chromosome testing, is that the same thing?

Sorry to hear of your losses op. I had 3 mc before DS2. Because they were all under 12 weeks we never had any official medical reason but my belief is that the following happened. 1st mc 2 eggs fertilised, one was blighted ovum and the other, at approx 8wks, had a low heart rate. We went back a wk later for a follow up scan - no heart beat :-( 2nd was very very early (like5weeks) and was never confirmed my dr . And 3rd I got a lump in my throat, which they believe was thyroiditus which would have messed up the hormones and loss was around 8wks. This 18months of my life was an awful time. After the 3rd I really just could not comprehend that we'd lost another one :-(. I can't imagine 6. I really hope the Ivf had some resolution for you.

IVF was helpful for us in identifying an egg quality problem and giving us information to make decisions on how to proceed. We were able to do a PGD cycle to look at the chromosomal makeup of our embryos as well as go through extensive testing to rule out immune/ thyroid issues etc. PGD will minimise your chances of transferring an abnormal embryo and hence another mc provided there is nothing else going on.
Have you also been tested for blood clotting factors? I also have factor V leiden which can cause recurrent mc when not appropriately treated.
All the best, I hope you have some answers soon and your journey to no. 2 will swiftly follow

I am just plodding along and trying to figure out what to do next. Thinking of getting a second opinion from a different FS but I don't even know where to start looking
