Going through miscarriage #5

Postby photofashionista » Thu May 26, 2016 1:20 pm

I'm currently going through another miscarriage. I had 3 before I had my daughter and then my boys followed in fairly quick succession. I really thought RPL was behind me. But now I had a msicarriage at 8 weeks in Nov of last year and another at 10 weeks this week. This one is a LOT more painful physically and it's difficult emotionally because I'm only a few days away from the due date of the last baby.

I'm just wishing it was all over. I'm very happy with my 3 children and I don't feel the same despair and heartbreak like I did with the first ones. These last two pregnancies weren't planned and a very happy surprise. I wasn't sure if I wanted more children but now having lost 2 more, I feel like I do want another.

Processing all of the feelings that go with a miscarriage is so difficult and it really makes you scare to try again for fear of going through it all over again.

I don't have anything in particular I'm needing to hear, just wanted to get this off my chest to a group of women that understand.

Thanks :)

I'm so sorry for your losses. I've had 4 total and it never really does get easier. I think the further along you are, the harder it is, too. God Bless you for going through all of that while trying to stay "normal" and happy for the children you are raising.

So sorry to hear about your miscarrying. I had a loss at 9+2 in December after trying so long to get pregnant it was devastating. You must be a strong lady! If I were you I woukd ask my doctor to do some testing. My DH and I just had blood testing done to see if we had translocated DNA that woukd explain our loss, and the doctor said that if we had a translocation it would mean the possibility of multiple losses and we might want to consider IVF so that we could find the embies without translocation and avoid repeated heartache.

Good luck to you and I'll keep you in my prayers as you go through this.

I am sorry to know about yr mcs. I have read that in case of recurrent mcs it is advised to consider doing additional testing as karyotype and preimplantation diagnosis PGD/PGS NGS to increase chances of having a problem-free pregnancy

You've got a beautiful family, honey. Miscarriages can be quite common. They're not that big a deal. If you feel like it, you can always get it checked. It's better to be safe than sorry! Good luck with your TTC. I hope it works this time around! x

Sorry to hear about your loss. It's good to see that you have the support of the rest of your family. It can be even harder if the miscarriage occurs during your initial TTC. You can make through it! Keep trying, I hope you get lucky. Good luck to you, honey! Keep us posted on it.
