I just experienced my second consecutive miscarriage. I had a blighted ovum in January and had a D&C at 9 weeks. I became pregnant again in May and everything was progressing great... baby was growing and had a healthy heartbeat. Went in for a routine appointment today... baby had stopped growing and there was no heartbeat. I had my second D&C today.

I have a beautiful 3 year old son and I can't understand why this is happening AGAIN. I am numb right now and I don't think it has really set in that my baby is gone. I would love to talk with you ladies who know what I am going through. Any advice or kind words are greatly appreciated right now.

*hugs* I am so sorry for your losses. Nothing I can say will make it better, but I'll try. Know that what you are feeling is normal. It will take a while to feel any better emotionally. Know that's ok. It's normal, you are a grieving mother. Don't let anyone make you feel bad for it.

There is a set of tests that can be done to test for reasons. You can ask your doctor about them, but be aware many doctors won't do the tests until after three losses. (They can be rather expensive tests.)

Most of all, I'm glad you've found us, but sad you needed to.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

I'm so sorry for your losses! I agree with Augie about looking into testing, at least to see what your doctor is willing to do/able to do, and what your insurance will cover.

I know how you feel, the sense of loss is so huge especially so close together!

I know that I cannot help you feel better, words can never be enough but I'd like to offer up so encouragement.For what it is worth a blighted ovum is something that is chance and should not repeat. The fetal demise is a lot scarier.

In 2009 I had three losses in 6 months, I had a blighted ovum, then fetal demise, then a chemical pregnancy. Six weeks after my chemical pregnancy I concieved again and have a beautiful son who is 22 months old, his little sister was a whoops and she is 8 months old... and I am pregnant again.

lurking...your story is almost identical to mine. sorta creepy even. I had a 3 year old son with no issues and then a blighted ovum and then a m/c after seeing a good heartbeat. I did testing and they found a blood clotting disorder and I took one baby aspirin a day as well as increased B vitamins. I went on to have another beautiful son. Hope this gives you the hope you needed. I agree to push your Dr. for the blood clotting panel testing at the least.
