Sweetie I'm so sorry to have to welcome you to the board.

I owned cats all my life, changed the litterbox I don't know how many thousands of times... when we went through fertility testing, they tested me for toxoplasmosis because apparently you build natural immunity if exposed. In all those years, I'd apparently never been exposed. I think toxoplasmosis infection is fairly rare. Don't beat yourself up about it! I used to think my miscarriages were my fault too, but unfortunately they are common. Just like you I saw heartbeats in all but one of them, because it was too early. My m/c's were caused by genetically defective eggs. We had a karyotype performed on one of my miscarriages, which is how we found out. It tends to happen more as you get older and also after you have children. Or so I've heard.

I hope you find out what is causing your m/c's (if anything) and are reading your positive pregnancy test in January!
