Hey everyone,

I'm Mel, 34, from Chicago. I've been on and off this board (though active on other JM forums) for the last year. I've had 3 miscarriages in the last year, and I am newly pregnant again. I'm hopeful- or as hopeful as I can really be after 3 losses. I'm currently 4w4d.

I had extensive RPL testing, with no real results. I am hypothyroid, but have been managing that for years just fine. I also have single mutation MTHFR a1298c- it's a gene mutation related to blood clotting disorders, but my specific variant doesn't cause problems. I had chromosomes tested on 2 of the lost pregnancies- they were normal. Third loss was a blighted ovum.

I'm currently seeing a great RE, and will get weekly appointments and ultrasounds. My hcg levels yesterday (at 17dpo) were 2914! A great, encouraging number. My first ultrasound was today! Not much to see, being so early. Just a sac- but good to know it was in the right place, and appropriately sized for where I should be.

I'm looking forward to being here and connecting with you all!
