I would love to know the reason for my RPL. I have had so much testing done and they can't find anything to explain my inability to have a healthy child. I feel so hopeless right now.

I talked to the genetic counsellor recently and the results from the microarray didn't show anything of significance. DH's results came back normal and although I do have two small additions on chromosome 1 and 5, these additions are not causing the miscarriages (because I am "normal" any child I pass the additions on to would be normal too). I am now done with the medical genetics team and once again I have no answers.

I have m/ced 7 times, there HAS to be something wrong but the drs can't find it. I just would like to know if continuing to try is a futile effort. None the less, DH and I will start trying again in the fall. I pray that I can have a healthy child but right now I'm not sure if it's going to happen.

I am so thankful for Joshua, even though he was born still, I got to see him and touch him and hold him. I will forever carry him in my heart. At least I know for sure that we will never have to go through what we did with him; he had a random genetic disorder and the likelihood of it happening again is almost zero. Thankfully, we got definitive answers in his case. I might not have been able to try again if I thought it might happen again.

*hugs* They haven't found an answer for five of my six babies either. the best the doctor could give me was to say that there could be a genetic problem that they don't know to test for. Medicine is constantly evolving. Maybe in a few years they could have new things to test for?

I'm so sorry Kimberly. I cannot begin to understand what it's like to have no answers at all.

I find it hard to believe that they haven't found anything. Most of your losses have been later in the first trimester. Maybe you should see if they'll redo the clotting panel on you again? Your losses seem to fit right into the time where clotting becomes an issue!

Thanks Ashley. Unfortunately, the clotting panel was done on two different occasions and both times perfectly normal. I thought the same as you and I asked them to run it again. It's very frustrating.

When I first started TTC twenty years ago there weren't even home pregnancy tests, let alone ovulation prediction tests. I didn't even know I had really had a loss right after I was married (way back in 1992/93) because by the time I got in my blood work was back to normal. I cannot even imagine how many chemical pregnancies I have had because my chemical pregnancy was EXACTLY like my "regular"cycle, late clumpy, clotty and crampy.

Now I have the other problem... birth control?

I waited ten years for my first baby and another seven for my second, there is no rhyme or reason sometimes and in the end I just say my children are on God's time not mine. In the end they all are on God's time.
