Well here goes..... Im pregnant again, after miscarrying in July. Prior to miscarrying, I found out I was pregnant fathers day weekend. I was stunned, because Im 34, and for so long I thought I couldnt get pregnant. My well around July, 2nd, I started cramping and then came the blood. My doctor had me come in for some test, my hcg levels were not doubling and eventually I miscarried the first part of July.During the first pregnancy, I was really under a lot of stress. We were getting married in early July, and I was outside cutting grass, going without food and really pushing myself, because I really didnt know I was pregnant. Now Im pregnant again (5weeks and 3 days), and every twinge, every cramp has me running to the bathroom checking for blood. I was told that having some cramping is normal, and Im trying to relax, but its easier said than done. lol. Sept 12th im scheduled for my first ultrasound and doctors visit. I have some issues I want to ask my doctor with my doctor, mainly a clotting issue that I want to be tested for. Whats the best way to ask to be tested, should I just ask her to test for it? What other things should I be asking to be tested for? If everything goes right, this will be my first child. Thanks in advance
Hugs! I can only imagine how emotional this is for you. My last pg ended in a m/c as well but it was 2.5 years ago (fertility issues) and I am still a complete mess right now. I don't really have any advice for your appt. I am having betas done to ease my mind but an u/s is a far better indicator so if you are already getting one of those you should be set. Sticky dust!
Congratulations and Welcome! I know exactly how you feel, we lost a baby in May at 8 weeks along and I have been a nervous wreck this time around. I'm sending you lots of sticky dust. Hopefully we all have a very happy and healthy 9 months.
I was tested for anti-phospholipid syndrome after my blood clot last year. The doctors now believe APS is the reason I miscarried years ago. From what I have been told, it's one of the clotting disorders most likely to cause miscarriages.
I had no family history of APS. Just the blood clot in my leg, miscarriages, and a different clotting disorder in a paternal aunt.
