I used to be "my big girl & angel boy" but I changed my user name.

I miscarried on Aug. 10 at 6 weeks pregnant. the sad part is I had just found out I was pg. 5 days before my d&c. I'm so sad right now. My little boy was still born Oct. 15 04 b/c of a knot in the umbilical cord and it was wrapped around his neck. He died 2 weeks before his due date. and now this!!!!! I'm so mad and sad and confused. I do have 1 living child, my little girl who will be 4 in Nov. I went for my 2 week follow up yesterday and the doc says that in the pathology report all the tests came back normal for the baby. so there is no real reason why I miscarried. I started bleeding and spotting 2 weeks after I concieved this baby and on the u/s the doctor did say there was a pool of blood behind the placenta so I don't know if it was a problem with the placenta or if it was just my body. How do I know if my hormone level was to low to begin with? I'm so afraid but I want anothe baby so badly. My little girl needs siblings here on earth! How am I supposed to just keep trying it's not a game to me! I need some real advice on what to do. I was thinking of getting on bcp's to make my hormone levels normal but the doctor said that's not gonna help it could make me worse off. How am I supposed to know what to do? please someone help me

Lil - I don't really know what to tell you about trying again. Especially for those of us that have lost, we know it's not a game to anyone. After having 2 mc's in 6 months, we've just decided to wait a while - and the Dr has decided I need some tests done. I'm not even sure what I'll do if they find something, right now I just want some time to re-coup emotionally & physically.

As far as regulating hormones - I don't think bcp is probably the answer to that - it just depends on what your issue is - I am going on bcp again - but that is so that I can just relax & clear my mind about it all. It can actually throw you off worse though hormonally & you have to keep that in mind. I would suggest perhaps visiting an herbalist. Just call around a bit & see what is in your area for vitamins & herbal stores. In my town there is an independent store (not a GNC) and the owners are both herbalists & have been very successful at helping many people including my SIL get their hormones back on track & regulate their AF.

I wish you all the best and I send you love and prayers for you healing.

It's good you are on the boards and getting support. It can be lonesome out there among people to whom babies come easily. Give yourself time to take care of yourself in every way that helps. You've really been through some rough things.

It would be great if you could get a doctor to look at your hormones. Better yet, if you have a reputable fertility clinic near you, they will most likely give you the best care. The clinic I went to is much more attentive, because *early care* of babies is their specialty.
