I had a second miscarriage on Monday..(natural miscarriage everything came out..just like the first one)
The doctor thinks it is a blood clotting issue..I am going to see a hematologist on the 28th of this month..

I was wondering if I should ask him if it is a hormone issue though, the two periods before I got pregnant were very light and only lasted about 2 days...My periods are never really heavy..

Anything else I should ask him?? I DO not want to have another miscarriage..so I really want to ask as many questions as I can..

Thanks ladies!

Thank you *Kiliki* for my awesome siggy!

There are several things you should ask your doc.

* do they know why you miscarried the first two times?
* what kind of blood work can they due to rule out hormonal issues?
* what things can you be doing before you try to get pregnant again?
* what should you do immediately once you find out you're pregnant again, i.e. progesterone?
* will they do genetic testing before you have three miscarriages?
* is there a physical issue, i.e. misshapen uterus, endometriosis, scaring on your uterus?

i am going through the same thing. i have had all kinds of blood work. the last thing they are going to do is wait until i get my next real period, then they are going to shoot some fluid into my uterus to see what shape it is.

if everything comes back clean, they'll chalk my three miscarriages up to bad luck and i'll keep trying.

good luck to you!

i hope this helps!

Great list of questions, beans! I've never been to an RE, so I don't have anything to add, but wanted to bump this up in case anyone else has other suggestions for you.
