Hi everyone, I'm a newbie at this. So here goes. In April we found out we were pregnant (it was a Monday), we were of course ecstatic. Friday comes around and I start spotting and cramping. Hmm... I call my doctor and they tell me to go home and put my feet up for the entire night. So I did. I continued to bleed, heavier and heavier and started clotting as well. By morning we knew we had miscarried. We went to the ER anyway and found out that we indeed were 5 wks pregnant and had miscarried. They ran tests and came back to tell me I was RH- and then asked my hubby his blood type. I was so confused by this whole thing but they explained that when an RH- mommy and a positive daddy make a baby and if the baby is positive the mommy's body fights the pregnancy like a virus. Great, so I killed my baby?! I proceeded to get the Rhogam (sp) shot and had a horrible reaction to it. They told us this would keep us from miscarrying again. Fast forward 6 months to October. 5 days before I am due to get my period I am spotting and cramping. Hmm I think, it must be aunt flow. The next day I go to the bathroom to find a large amount of bright red blood everywhere, all over my panties, down my thighs, etc. Mind you, I have a tampon in, thinking this was my period. I proceed to clean myself up and realize I am also clotting, large clots. I panic a little. I go home and lay down. Proceed to bleed heavily and cramp horribly all night. The next day I wake up to find I am no longer bleeding. Now just dark brown spots. This can't be my period. My period lasts 7 days every month! I realize that this is exactly what happened in April when I miscarried. I have continued to have dark brown spotting for 3 days. I went to the doctor today to tell her about all of this, thinking she will do some tests to figure out why I am miscarrying again. After I explain everything to her she throws a term at me that I had never heard, chemical pregnancy. She explains that I have now had 2 of these. I was only 4 weeks along this time. So I ask her what I can do for next time. She says, nothing, they don't do any testing until you have 3 miscarriages in a row. I have to have ANOTHER miscarriage before you will find out what's going on? I have only been pregnant twice in my entire like and both of them have resulted in miscarriage and there is NOTHING you can do?!! I am confused and heartbroken. She really didn't give me any information or advice. I cried the whole way home. Do I need to wait a while to try again? Will I even get a period this month or ovulate? Why is this happening to me? Please someone give me some comforting words of advice!!

I am in the same boat.. had 2 in the past 6 months. I hope the TTC journey is short for you, and you get a good healthy bean tucked in there tightly very soon.

I had 2 normal pregnacies in 1998 and 2000 now I have had 3 misccarriages in a row. Feb 2005, July 2010 and Oct 2010. With this most recent miscarriage (currently going thru) I started to bleed before I even knew I was pregnant- I want to believe that I am still carrying but knowing my levels have dropped from 4500 to 2400 I know this is not a vialable (SP) pregnacy . I am not sure what I can ask my Dr to test for when I go back in for my HCG levels this week. I know she will check the HCAG and progesterone level but what else can I ask for???

Hi! I'm sorry for your losses. I would suggest having your thyroid checked and a clotting panel done. All are easy fixes and common caused of RPL. We have a sticky on the main board with a list of the tests if you'd like. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
