Hi, ladies. I'm new to this forum. I was looking for a forum specifically for women who have experienced recurrent pregnancy loss and stumbled upon this group. I have had 9 miscarriages and managed to have 2 kids in there as well. So I have 2 children out of 111 pregnancies. Am I the only one with this low of a success rate with my pregnancies? I'm starting to feel like such a loner because I feel like I've surpassed everyone I know in number of miscarriages.
After my last miscarriage on January 2nd, I'm feeling desperate for more answers on why this is happening to me. I was diagnosed with Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome after my 4th consecutive miscarriage. I then went on to have my son with heparin treatment and baby aspirin. But since I've started this treatment, I've still lost 5 babies and given birth to 2. I've also taken progesterone suppositories upon a positive pregnancy test and also foltx (extra folic acid, B6 and B12). My miscarriages are all first trimester. A couple have been after we've seen a heartbeat on ultrasound, but the rest have been super early to where my beta hcg levels either didn't go up or went up slightly only to start decreasing shortly thereafter.
Thanks for any input you have.

I'm sorry for all your losses. I've not yet had my rainbow baby, so I don't really have any advice especially since you've had testing.

You could ask to be tested for Natural Killer cells. This is something new that's being seen, where after enough miscarriages, your body just automatically attacks any foreign cells (the baby).

Sorry for your losses. I have been pregnant 9 times and have had 8 miscarriages - it looks like this pregnancy is going to finally give me my take-home-baby. I know exactly how you feel about a high number of miscarriages not feeling normal. I went to a recurrent pregnancy loss clinic and the dr there (who has seen many women with RPL) said I was not completely unusual. I have also seen other women on the board with a high number of losses.
I was always told that my best bet at getting a healthy baby was to keep trying. Unfortunately, it's the only option I have with today's technology because they can't find a reason for my losses. I'm sorry not to be much of a help but I hope you feel reassured to know that you are not alone.

Wow, Halloween 81! So excited for a healthy pregnancy for you now Did you do anything different this time as far as treatment is concerned?

Thank you. I didn't do anything different. I have tried different things in the past (baby aspirin, progesterone, etc) but because they never worked I didn't continue with them. As I said, the reason for my losses is unknown so I can't take anything specific. DH and I have been blessed by this pregnancy.

I'm sorry for your losses. I'd second the NK cells testing and maybe look into reprductive immunology testing too.

I have no other advice since I still have not gotten my take home baby after numerous losses.

I have been pregnant 10 times and will hopefully have 2 babies at home in April. Some of the treatments you have done are what keep me pregnant. I had to take baby aspirin and progesterone to get my daughter where only the progesterone was needed to sustain this pregnancy. I don't have any advice, but I wanted to tell you that you are definitely not alone in this. I wish none of us had to go through this.
