healthy pregnancy, then 3 miscarriages...

I carried a healthy pregnancy to term in 2005. January 2007 we started tying for #2 and have had three known miscarriages. Has this happened to any of you? Has anyone gone on to have a healthy pregnancy in this situation? Any info would be appreciated, Thanks

I have read (while I worry about miscarrying again myself) that each time that you miscarry consecutively, your chances of a successful pregnancy go up dramatically each time.

I have miscarried once, and my mom twice in a row, she had 3 kids after her miscarries and now i am pregnant again.

hiya

I saw your post and just had to write to you.

I had my first son in 99, my second son in 2001, then found out i was pregnant with #3 but lost it in june 2002, i fell pregnant with #4 but lost it too in dec 2002, i was totally devestated but i hadn't given up hope so i waited a while the fell pregnant with #5 in june 2003 but unfortuantly lost this wee one too. So i gave up and decided i wasn't having anymore as i had lost 3 in a row obviously i couldn't have children anymore, i even got rid of my cot and things.

Then in october 2004 i found out i was pregnant again and didn't dare to hope, the usual started to happen i had cramps, then the brown staing started, it was just a matter of waiting for the inevitable but i waited and the staining got lighter and the cramps went away. i went into labour at 25 weeks but thankfully the drugs they gave me stopped the labour until 37 weeks my waters broke nothing else happened and i ended up getting an infection which led to another c-section, i had lost of complications afterwards but i got my 1st little girl!! how amazing and to think i had lost all hope! silly me !

So as my body had been through much my partner and i decided enough was enough so he put his name down to get a vasectomy. but guess what??

I only fell pregnant again!! once again i had another complicated pregnancy preclampsia and posteclampsia but i had another sweet little girl.

2 boys and 2 girls and to think i had given up!

We've been unlucky to have had 3 miscarriages but at least at that time we already had children

but please don't give up hope x x

good luck

hi, thanks so much for your reply. I find people don't talk to much about micarriage so you think you are alone when actually so many of us are going through this. Happy to hear you went on to have two more daughters! We will try a little longer and them count our blessings with our one wonderful daughter and call it a day...
Thanks, Katerine

My friends mother had three healthy kids, all to term, and all natural. She then went on to have 9 miscarriages, and the 10th one finally went to term. She did however have to have a cesarean due to severe hemorrhaging. She now has 4 healthy kids. I hope everything goes well for you! She came to the conclusion that her body just wasn't ready for a baby at that exact time, she didn't do anything different for any of her pregnancies.

Good Luck!

hiya Misy

Sorry to hear what your going through, I know what it's like x

This might sound a bit odd but i was wondering if you were on the pill before you fell pregnant with your first born and also if all your miscarriages are early?

hey misy
This again might sound weird and may be wrong but it worked for me.

I came off the pill and fell pregnant with my firstborn and had a healthy son. I went on the pill again and fell pregnant with my second child and also had a son.

After that i stayed off the pill and fell pregnant with number 3, which ended in early pregnancy, then i fell pregnant with number 4 which also ended in early pregnancy, same happened with number 5. (all my m/c were around 6 weeks and 3 days)

So i had lots of dna test done and nothing came back abnormal, so i reaserched more at home and realised one of the main causes of miscarriage are lack of progestrone, the more i thought about it i realised the pill had an artificial progestrone.

So i went back on the pill for a couple of months, came of it and tried again, thats when i fell pregnant with my first daughter no 6, Then i went on to have my second daughter.

I have no idea whether my theory is correct and really i don't care as something worked, possibly it was a coincidence but it's worth a try?

Don't give up even though i know it hurts

Hi everyone,
Iunderstand exactly how you all feel, I had a gorgeous little boy Nov 2003, my first pregnancy and everything was fine the whole way through. I got pregnant again 11 months later and lost the baby at 9wks & 3d, I went on to have 7 more miscarriages all before 8 wks and one more last year) at just over 9wks again. I've had blood tests & scans and they can find nothing wrong. After the last, I was referred to a specialist who told me to start taking LOW DOSE (75mg) asprin as soon as I found out I was pregnant. Guess what? I'm 25 weeks and so far everything is going fine. It could be worth asking your doctors about if asprin could help, obviously I don't recommend taking it without proper medical advice as it can also cause other complications, but it has worked for me & if it prevents any one else from going through this heartache then it has to be worth it. Good luck everyone

I know what you are going through
Hi, I am 30 and in 2006 I gave birth to a healthy baby boy. I had a perfect textbook pregnancy. About a year later we decided to try again, since then I have had 3 early miscarriages. All of them have been missed misscarriages and required D and C's. Financially and emotionally spent we decided we couldn't go through it anymore.I have thought about having testing done, but I am scared to try again. I am so thankful to have my son but I would love for him to have a sibling.We now use protection because we don't want to keep having miscarriages. I keep praying that God will give us wisdom. If it's his plan for us to only have 1 child we can accept it, but it's so hard to know what to do.

Hi! This was encouraging to read. I am 33 ( a week shy from 34) and have had 3 successful pregnancies then I started trying for a fourth with my new husband and I've had 3 miscarriages (all within the 5-6th week) in a row over the last 3 years. One in 6/07, 4/08 and now 5/09. I feel devastated and fearful to keep trying and having another miscarriage. The only testing they can consider is low progesterone or a blood clotting...issue I should know in 10 days. If its neither and not him...it was just not the right time. I know its scary to keep trying but if there is nothing wrong with either just pray and keep faith that whatever happens will happen Smile For Levismom...I am scared, too but it is just a simple blood draw to find out these 2 common reasons. Take care!

hi ladies,i know exactly how you are all feeling,im 26 and have a beautiful healthy daughter who is 3 years old,we decided to try and give her a sibbling...well i went on to have 3 consecutive miscarriges in 8 months!!! all at 6 weeks!! the first and second time i thought it was just bad luck...but when i got caught by pure chance with number 3...i knew there was a problem!! so i asked to be reffered to a specialist and iv enow had 16 lots of blood taken and have a scan on my womb booked,we will get the results back on july 21st!!! im petriffied,i know it sound wrong...but i want there to be something small wrong so they can fix it as im so desperate to have another child!!! as im sure you all are! i will let you know how i get on../but all i keep thinking is that i was on the pill before i had my daughter,but have been off it now for 4 years?im sure its tp do with hormones and progestertone? the specialist did say to me that sometimes women who have had children can develop a blood clotting disorder and women who tend to loose fetuses at 5-6 weeks may have a problem where the baby cant implant...due to the blood clotting??any way sorry to go...but your the first ladies ive told...as to everyone else it seems to be so hush hush!!!i wish you all luck and we should all remember that were not alone ...altho it sometimes feels like it.....hugs to you all.. xx

hi ladies,

Don't give up!! And thank you for all your encouraging stories.

I know exactly how you all feel. I am 31 yrs old and have a beautiful boy, just turned 3. I have had 3 consecutive m/c all between 6-7 weeks, the last one even had a healthy heartbeat.

I was refered to fertility specialist who totally made me feel so flat! He told me I look healthy and that every woman should expect to have at least 5 mc in her life! due to chromosome problems and didn't even do a single test.

I just know there is something wrong. My naturopath did some blood tests for me and i got a positive Anti NuclearAntibodies result, which the specialist said to ignore because all my other tests came back negative! But my naturopath thinks that it is the problem and is putting me on low dose aspirin the next time we try!

I managed to get the last fetus tested through my GP, still waiting for results, hopefully will get them back in the next 2 weeks! If they come back normal I will know that the ANA results probably do have something to do with it!

So please don't give up! Know that there are a few of us out there and we will eventually have our healthy little babies! Maybe we all just need a little more TLC and support!

xx

32 and no children with 3 miscarriages
I am 32 years old and in 2002 I had my first m/c and became pregnant again in december 2002 and m/c February 2003. Found out September 14th 2010 that I was once again finally pregnant. I went to the obgyn and had an ultrasound and could see the heartbeat,second appointment they done an ultrasound and the heartbeat was low they said,went this past Tuesday for another ultrasound and they said the baby had no heartbeat. I am devastated as I have no children at all. I am a diabetic and was keeping my blood sugars under tight control,checking often,taking several shots and eating a very well diet they put me on. I have had no cramping,no bleeding or anything. I go back to the doctor Monday and I am going to ask for another ultrasound. I have read many articles on the internet were women say they had misdiagnosed m/c's this early. I am 8 weeks with no heartbeat. I feel so alone and confused as I done everything I could to bring this baby into our lives. If no heartbeat and I haven't miscarried on my own Monday they said they could give me medicine or do a d/c but I am having issues with both of those ideas. I pray that God give me the chance to be a Mother as my husband and I have lots of love to give to a child. I am glad to see everyone share their experiences as many people don't talk about it but it does seem to help to know I am not alone. God bless each and every one of you and I am wishing you all the best of luck. Please pray for me!!!
