Second miscarriage after 3 healthy kids

Postby blessed03 » Thu Jan 29, 2015 4:46 pm

I am currently losing my 2nd pregnancy in 3 months. My first miscarriage was in October at 9 weeks (baby stopped growing at 6 weeks) and now I am miscarrying at 5 weeks. I am only 29 and in overall great health. I've had a normal blood panel just recently as well.

I know no one can give me a definitive answer as to why, but I am wondering how many healthy women who've had previous normal/healthy pregnancies, go on to have reoccurring losses? I am so afraid to try again, but I think I am more afraid not to try. Hoping it was just bad luck....

Anyone in the same boat?

I'm sorry for your loss. I'm not in the same boat exactly but I have lost two pregnancies in a row and gone on to have a healthy pregnancy. I learned in that time that I have hashimotos which is an auto immune disease. Have you been tested for antithyroid antibodies? Is not commonly tested for. Could you consider seeing an endocrinologist? I went on thyroid meds and had my second son.

My thoughts are with you. Feel free to ask any questions.

I'm facing the same thing. I have an 11 yr old and 5 yr old I'm 31. In Nov I had my first loss (chemical pregnancy) today at 8 weeks I was diagnosed with a blighted ovum. My blood panel cane back normal as well. I'm also scared to try again after this :( wish I could offer better advice but wanted you to know you're not alone.

I had two chemicals, then two healthy pregnancies, then another very early chemical, then a miscarriage where the baby's heart stopped at 9w. Now I'm ttc again and if I get pregnant it will be my 7th pregnancy, but (hopefully) third child! So I am super nervous too. Hugs x
