  • We lost this baby, too. The first time I figured it was just a random thing, the baby wasn't developing properly and the second time there would be no problems. Unfortunately, I was wrong. I think that I have some kind of medical problem, since I have such bad pain and cramps when I'm pregnant and I end up losing the baby so quickly. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, were you diagnosed with anything? And most importantly, did anyone have multiple early miscarriages and then go on to have a healthy pregnancy and baby? I have Medicaid for anything related to the previous two pregnancies, but no health insurance, so testing that can be done without me paying out of pocket is very minimal. I'd like to try and find some answers on my own, and maybe some suggestions as to what I can do next time to prevent this. Any ideas? Thanks a lot.

  • Oh my Chandy I am so very sorry.
    I have had multiple losses, and a healthy baby. I had one loss at 5 weeks, then my healthy DD, then 2 more losses. I had testing done, but my insurance covered it. It was also VERY expensive. I did find out that I have something wrong with me, and it can be corrected, but it is with medication that a doctor must prescribe. I have some websites with info I will try and find for you. Again I am very sorry.

    Here are the websites

  • I may be the one to talk to. I have had four miscarriages that have been doctor confirmed, and several others that I suspect but never bothered to get tested for. I also have two living children.

    All my losses are before 5 weeks. After the last one my RE told me that I could undergo expensive/extensive/exhaustive tests, get results and then be told to take baby aspiring - or I could just take one baby aspirin every day.

    I left the RE, went and bought baby aspirin, and conceived and kept a baby only two days later. I believe the aspirin helped me keep that pregnancy. After all, my beta level was only 3 at 12 DPO and my progesterone was only 10. I chose not to supplement the progesterone, but I kept the baby anyway.

    So, my idea is to go out today and buy that aspirin. I don't think it can hurt, and it can definitely help.

    Good luck.

  • I think Melanie and Amy have given you some very sound advice, Chandra.

    I have had to losses, but only one was early in date. Sorry I cannot be more help to you, but I wanted to give my support.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss
    . There could be lots of different reasons. It just may have been too soon and your body wasn't ready, or there may be a problem. The protocol for testing in cases of early recurrent miscarriages is slowly shifting from 3 losses to two. If you're interested in testing, find an RE or fertility specialist in your area. Your OB may can do some basic testing (mycoplasma, ureaplasma, etc), but only a specialist can do the very in-depth stuff. Good luck.
