Hi ladies, I'm pretty new to this board after suffering my 2nd loss almost 3 weeks ago. I had a consult with an RE last week (who seems FABULOUS!), and she sent me for a boatload of bloodwork. I got most of my results back yesterday - she tested me for antiphospholipid antibodies, anticardiolipin antibodies, lupus anticoagulant, vitamin B12/folate, and celiac disease - and EVERYTHING came back normal. The only thing we are waiting on now are the karyotyping/chromosome analysis for me and DH. I guess this is a good thing that everything is negative?

I'm still waiting for my AF to return (I'm guessing that is going to happen within 2 weeks) and then on my 2nd cycle, my RE is going to do day 3 bloodwork, a hysteroscopy, and mid-luteal progesterone testing. Does this seem to be covering all of the bases? And how scary is a hysteroscopy? I've never had any procedures done "down there" with the exception of my IUD insertion and removal. I had read horror stories of IUD insertions, and mine barely hurt at all, so I'm hoping the hysteroscopy will be easy too.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Kristen, I'm Glenda. Sorry to hear about your loss.
I hope all of this testing leads to a good gameplan.
Sounds like the RE is being pretty thorough. You've had more done than I have, but I have had no losses . I have had a hyseroscopy, and it was not very pleasant, but my doc uses a tenaculum, which is a torture device for your cervix. And even that was just like a big long menstrual cramp.
I hope you are in "Grad" status before you know it!!!
