Re: Cycles out of whack

Has your LP always been short? Mine used to be normal but seems to be getting shorter. I have read about all kinds of things that I could try, but I am afraid to mess around with too much stuff...

Re: Cycles out of whack

Thanks Ashley. I just started taking B6 so we will see if that has any impact on my LP. I'll give it some time and talk to my OB if things don't start to improve. I appreciate your input!

Re: question for a close friend

After our loss at 39 weeks I was not ready to see anyone right away. I really appreciated all of the cards and meals that we received though. Just let her know that you are there for her and she...

Re: Testing results- sad :(

I'm sorry. My tests also came back with nothing other than MTHFR Hetero A1298C which the MFM is not concerned about. He also told me that blood thinners were not warranted.

It is so hard to...

Re: 4 out of 4....

I'm so sorry. It is so incredibly unfair. There is no way to make sense of why people who don't even take care of their kids (or themselves) are blessed with multiple healthy children and other...

Re: Still no answers

Thank you so much for all of the great info, Lisa. During my initial research pertaining to RPL, I came across Braverman's site. He seems to discourage use of steroids in later pregnancy and says...

Re: Still no answers

Thanks ladies. I think there just isn't a lot of scientific evidence that MTHFR causes problems with pregnancy so my doctors don't really subscribe to it. From what I have read, it impacts your...

Re: Still no answers

The doctors around here think it unlikely that MTHFR has anything to do with my losses either, but because they can't give me any reason for my losses I feel like maybe I should look into MTHFR more...

Well, I officially have all my results in and again we do not know the reason for my 39 and 17 week losses. Blood tests were normal, not clotting disorders though I did tests positive for Hetero...

I also have a healthy 4 year old son and had two losses the last year - a daughter at 39 weeks and another daughter at 17 weeks. No reason was ever found for either loss. I have seen two OB...

Re: Is there hope after 2nd and 3rd trimester loss?

They told me that the blood clotting ones could take awhile but expected to have them in 2 weeks or they wouldn't have scheduled the follow-up. Now I am just waiting for a call.

Re: Rplqotw.....

That is a hard question and also one I ask myself all the time. For me, I guess it depends if there is anything else left to try. Do you know what is causing your losses? Are there any specialists...
