I am wondering if anyone has has two unexplained miscarraiges at 9 weeks (after healthy hb seen and all levels doing well) and then went on to have a healthy pregnancy without intervention? I have been tested for Rh negative but I have o+ blood. ( My sister had rh negative in one of her pregnancies) My doctor says she has done all the blood work for blood clotting issues and all came back normal. I do have poor circulation but this doesn't seem to raise any issues. I know I have read that people have done the heparin and baby asprin and progesterone and that has helped but my doctor ( infertility specialist) doesn't think any of this will help me. I guess I am just afraid of this happening again if there is no intervention. Anyone out there with inspiration stories in these circumstances?

I just have to say that I am sooo sorry that this is where we all meet but you ladies have been such a source of support for me. You all have given me more hope than I thought possible at this point. Thank you to all of you strong ladies. I am so sorry for all your losses, I know just how heartbreaking it is to lose something so incredibly special. I wish I could hug each and every one of you!!!!!!

I had to register and reply to this because this post could have been written by me a year ago.
I found out I was pregnant with my first in March of 06. We told the family, all was going well until exactly one week to the day of finding out; I started having very strong cramping with heavy bleeding. I lost that one at about six weeks. We moved on from that one fairly quickly thinking we could try again.
Tested positive again in June of 06. Things seemed better but I spent the entire time I was pregnant with a vague anxiety. All of July and August passed without incident. Then I found blood on September 9th. Went to the ER who told me that I had conceived twins and that both had died. Had a couple of follow up appointments. We scheduled a surgery but on the 15th, which is my husband's birthday, I bled through a pad, my jeans, and two towels within 15 min. My husband rushed me to the hospital and the Dr's said that the twins had lodged themselves in my cervix (hence the horrible pain I had been having that whole day) and my body was trying desperately to flush them out (hence the extreme amount of blood). He removed them and did some pathology. I also went through some intense blood and genetic tests just to "rule things out".
No cause was ever found for the three babies I lost.
I went through a tremendous amount of worry and depression. I was able to function somewhat normally for about two weeks after the 15th, but I had a major breakdown and literally did not get out of bed for a week, until my husband dragged me out of bed and too the doctor. She said I was essentially having a breakdown and prescribed lots and lots of medication. There was just too much pain, and I could not function. I lost my job, I wrecked my car trying to drive in that state and I still have not gotten back into the driver's seat of a car since. In December my husband and I got into a fight and I hit him in the face so hard it bruised him. I wasn't even angry at him. I was angry at my big stupid body for betraying me not once, but twice. He became the target for my self-loathing and we treated each other terribly. I told my husband I hated him and wanted him to leave because he was a reminder of what I had lost. Fast forward six months and a LOT of counseling later, my husband and I were back together, in a much more loving relationship, and despite my careful planning of my cycle I discovered I was pregnant.
I. Was. So. Mad.
I didn't want to be pregnant. I thought, Like you, I though that if I had had two miscarriages like that in a row, that there must be something wrong with me and that stupidly getting pregnant meant I was only going to go through more pain and disappointment. I waited three weeks to tell my husband and I was 20 weeks along and feeling movement before I dared tell anyone else. I am now 34 weeks along and I am feeling much more confident and actually happy, but it's hard. I know now, painfully, that there are no guarantees in life. But he's still happy and very active, so every day that goes by, I feel happier and happier, starting to know that I am finally going to hold my baby in my arms. This pregnancy couldn't possibly be more uneventful, there has not been a single complication or issue, and my baby has done nothing but give the doctors and me reassuring test results and strong heartbeats.

One thing that finally pulled me off the precipice was when my new doctor explained to me how common two unexplained miscarriages followed by a healthy pregnancy are. I can't remember the numbers exactly, but it is staggering to see how much it happens VS. How little we hear about it. If someone had explained that to me in September of 06, I may not have destroyed my life in a self-destructive rage. So try to put your mind at peace until you can try again. I am living proof that it's not only possible, but my doctors have not treated me any differently because of my history, because they know how often this happens. There are not guarantees, but there is also no reason for you to give up hope either.
Here is some Ninja Smilies, just cause I like them.

Good luck.

Marie,
I have had 4 total miscarriages. They were all after my first three children. I lost one at 8 weeks, 16 wks, 18, wks, then had baby number four (with baby asprin), and then just recently miscarried in September (not on baby asprin). I am now expecting a a baby in July 2009. I am on baby asprin again. I am convinced this is what made the difference for me. I moved out of state last year and my new Dr. did not think the asprin was necissary. I wish I had gone with my instinct. I have another Dr. now and he agrees that the baby asprin probably made the difference. I was previously seen by a perinatal specialist and was also tested for everything possible. There was no known cause of my losses. I suspect it is a blood clotting isue that is undetected?? I am prayerfully hopeful that God will give me peace in this pregnacy and that he will allow me to carry baby full term. I trust He will give me strength. I have to say, it was heart breaking that my Dr. made me wait until I had three miscarriages before any testing was done to help me and my babies. Each time I think my heart cannot take anymore. I am still greiving for our Autumn Joy! I am thankful that she in is the loving hands of my God! Thank you for sharing. I will keep you all posted as to how this pregnacy goes.
