how many miscarriages have you had before you had a baby?

Postby creative_cutie » Mon Apr 19, 2010 1:57 pm

I had my DD in 2007 with no problems and we started TTC again September 2009. We conceived that cycle and I had a natural m/c at 6w3d. We waited 1 cycle then TTC again. We conceived on that 1st cycle and I lost the baby at 8w5d after seeing the heartbeat 2 times. The pathology report from the d&c reports that the baby had chromosomal abnormalities.

Just looking for some hope that I can successfully go on to have another child. I feel like I'll never be able to carry another child to term. And, with my 2 year old asking me for a baby brother or sister, I feel like I'm letting the entire family down.

Any inspirational stories would really lift my spirits!

My first pregnancy was 10 years ago. It was ectopic and DH and I were not trying, in fact, I was on birth control. 3 years ago, we started actively TTC. For 2 years, we got pergnant 3 times, and MC 3 times. All early (under 8 weeks) and never had them tested for genetic defects. I was told I have low progesterone, so the next pregnacy, I took suppliments. Lost that one at 11 weeks. The fetus was tested and it was a genetic defect (triplody) This time, I had no issues, and carried to term :)

I had three consecutive mc's before having my first. It was a very long and tough road for us. Our first loss was a chemical, follow by a loss at 11.5 weeks (abnormal chromosones) and our third was at 10.5 weeks (triploidy 69).

Sorry about your loss hun.

So sorry for your losses and your daughter is beautiful!
We also had our first DD w/no problems and started ttc again when she was 1.5. That one only lasted 8 wks, and the one after that 6. We had some testing, no problems found. Then another 1st tri. loss. Then support groups,more tests, no answers. Approaching 40, we decided we'd keep trying until it worked or we were too old. :) Two more losses, both random chromosomal issues. This all took 5 years with all the ttc and emotional recovery.

Last Jan I got pg again, and it was due the week of dd1's 8th bday. Major stress, but no problems and I sit here bf-ing her as I type. We are so amazingly happy and pleased by our stubbornness and still don't know why it was sooo hard or why we got a happy ending when so many people don't.

It can be really hard, but keep at it as long as you feel that is what you are meant to do!

We struggled for 4 years with unexplained infertility before having our DD. Then since then we've had 2 m/c's one at 12w5d in Jan. '09 and the other was a chemical in Mar. '10. I'm expecting now and hoping this one's a keeper! It's due in Feb. '11.

I had my DS 7 years ago, then got married almost 2 years ago and had a m/c at 6 weeks. I had a chemical last year, which didn't affect me as bad as the m/c the previous year. Then earlier this year we weren't even trying and *bam* I ended up pregnant.

I've been terrified the whole time, but I think that's completely normal for anyone whose had a loss.

Man, I know this thread is old, but just for future reference for anyone else....


DS1 in 2005, DS2 in 2006 (m/c his twin), DD in 2008, m/c at 7w 4/09, 10w 7/09, loss at 17w 2/10, 5w 3/10, one other suspected early loss, two of those weren't confirmed lossed, but this here stands at my 9th pregnancy, 10th baby... hopefully I will go to term this time. :)

I tend to give up hope back and forth. Sometimes I feel all will be well but others I feel like it simply can't and won't I dunno.
