3 consecutive miscarriages, anticardiolipin IGM positive

i am 32 years old. i got married in one and half years before. since then i had consective 3 miscarriges. my first miscarrige was in may 2011, it is of 14 week. at that time i had very bad throat, fever and body alergy. due to my acute illness and continues fever of about 1 week i had heavy bleeding and explelled the fetus. no D&C was carried out. reason of miscarriage was not found by doctors.

2nd obrtion was in march 2012. it was of 10 week pregancy. suddenly i had spotting problem that converted in bleeding within one day. ultrasound report b4 miscarrige state. a well formed gestational sac corresponding 6week is seen, yolk sac seen, NO FETAL POLE seen. this time my doctor intentionally did D&C , as it was 2nd consective miscarrige. this time blood screeing showed that my anticardiolipin IGM level is positive and this will be taken care in your next pregnanacy.

3rd miscarriage in august, 2012. it is of 8 week. no gastational sac was seen in ultrasound. but beta HCG level raised upto 3700. i was given treatment of aniticardiolipin IGM. medicines were, Loprin 75mg daily, deltacartril 3 times a day n in 8th weeks it was raised to 4 times a day (5mg), folic acid 3 times a day, Claxane 40mg alternate days. last time i visited my doctor on 04-08-2012, that time my beta hcg was 3700 (test date 25-07-2012) and anicardiolipin IGM was droped down from 24 (18-07-2012) to 14.5 (25-07-2012) she asked my to discontinue claxane 40mg and visit me with fresh beta hcg after 2 week. soon i discontinued claxane , i started bleeding on
very next day, doctors tried to stop the process but couldn't. now my beta hcg has droped upto 625.

please guide me what should i do to avoid further miscarriges, i am very much upset. what necessary test i should go through before next conception? should i need bed rest in next conception, why always it happens in 1st trimester? please guide

why woudl they want u to discontinue them if u ahve a true antiocardiolipid \u shoudl ahve been takein the injections of either heprin or lovenox from day after ur period until after u deliver. no questions asked. my doctor told em if i even miss a dose of my meds it could cause a miscarriage. we were in hopes that we found this anticardiolpid intime but didnt find it till i was 5 weeks so we didnt get it started in time and i miscarried. my advise to u woudl be get a different dr and talk to them about lovenox or heparin and they are only once a days not 3 and 4 times daily. its kinda of ironic all my miscarriages were rigth around the same time as urs. good luck with this and let me know what u find out please
