Hey everyone. Just went through my third miscarriage on 5/22. I held off on posting here because I really just needed some time without JM to wrap my head around another loss. I'm taking it ok for the most part, however there are day when I see a pregnant woman, or I see a friend who's going to have her second and it makes me sad. I really really want to be one of those girls who has an easy time keeping a pregnancy. However with my translocation it's just not going to happen the way we want it to. We'll most likely have to have IVF with PGD to have a successful pregnancy (unfortunately it's just not in the budget right now) or we'll have to endure many miscarriages.

We did try again this cycle and I'm in my TWW, so I guess we'll see what happens.

I am so sorry your having to go through this. It's not fair to have to endure this over and over again. Don't feel bad for taking time away (I do that often). I hope and pray that you get pregnant this cycle and it's your rainbow baby.

I can't imagine having to endure loss after loss in hopes of getting your rainbow baby.
Can I ask what a translocation is? I'm not familiar with that one....
I hope you can find some comfort here.

I'm so sorry for your loss. There's no shame in having to do PGD with IVF. I have a friend that had to do that. They had many miscarriages over a 9 year period and the only way to ensure a viable pregnancy was to do the genetic testing before implanting any embryos. They finally got their rainbow baby and I hope you will, too.

It's not right that some women have to go through so much to have a baby. I hope you get your rainbow soon.

Basically I have a balanced reciprocal translocation on two of my chromosomes (1,4). What this means is there are breaking points on my chromosomes where pieces of them broke and went to the other chromosome, in this case I have a break point in chromosome 1 and a break point in chromosome 4. They balanced each other out so i don't have a trisomy...but the chances of me having a pregnancy with a trisomy is high and is probably the cause of my miscarriages. Trisomy 1 and 4 are extremely rare and very very lethal (with most not making it past fertilization).

My RE basically said this "Every month you're playing roulette with your eggs". The ideal pregnancy would be one where the baby has no chromosome issue what so ever, but if we do PGD and find out that I have no eggs that "morph' correctly, we'll take a balanced egg but that will mean that our children will have fertility issues when they are older as well. Which I would hate to knowingly pass on to them to be honest.

Wow, that's crazy, thanks for explaining it though. I can't imagine having your pregnancy chances lowered that much and then having the responsibility on your shoulders to try not to pass this on to your kids too...what a lot to bear.
