MC #2 - what now??

Postby Romseygirl » Mon Jun 17, 2013 11:09 am

So it has been confirmed, I have miscarried for the second time this year!! I have an appointment with my GYN this afternoon to talk about a D & C as I am not bleeding or cramping and baby is meauring 7weeks when I am 9 weeks along.

Last time I didn't need and a D & C it just happened naturally, I really don't know what to expect and how long before we can try again?

I also don't understand why I keep mc'ing, I obviously can get pregnant I just cannot keep it.... what are we doing wrong? Doc says its chromosomes, so does that mean me or dh have bad genes????

We are not getting any younger and I am frustrated and angry!!! :cry:

If doc is saying chromosomes it just means the embryo wasn't up to snuff. IT isn't anything personally with you or DH.

Have they run any other labwork to rule out anything else or did everything come back okay and it's just basically abnormal embryo?

I had a D&C with my ectopic for testing purposes and I had the all clear to BD within a week and was okay'd to try again even before my first AF. It depends on the doctor, but I imagine you should be cleared quickly as well to try again.

Thanks Radkitten

My D & C is booked for Wednesday - GYN didnt say anything about time frame for trying again after D & C. He did say that he will proscribe Progesterone for the first 12 weeks once I get pregnant again....

Romseygirl, sorry for your loss.

I had an mc in Jan and a D&C in Feb. We opted to send the tissue out for lab results and found there was a problem with the chromosome. (an extra on 13 that caused the miscarriage) Basically, they didn't divide correctly in the early phases. It was a bit of a relief for me to find out that it wasn't anything I did, even though I knew it was highly improbable. The error also is one of the most common causes of mc. If you want more concrete answers, you may want to send out the tissue after your d&c.

I hope all goes well for you tomorrow and that you're able to ttc again soon!

GL tomorrow with the D&C hun. I had one as well with my ectopic and it wasn't too bad. Like hopeful88 said, if you can request it to be sent out for labwork. My OB & RE send all stuff like that out by default, but some might not. That could potentially give you the answers you are looking for.
