TTC After M/C
Are you trying to conceive after one or more miscarriages? How long did you (or will you) wait until TTC again? Who or what has been helpful to you during your difficult time: faith, the support of your partner/friends/families (or did you find them unable to relate?), others who you now found out also m/c'd...

Hoping for lucky #3

Posted by: 3xacharm on Wed Apr 22, 2009

With my first pregnancy, I had a m/c at 8 wks in 4/08 (even after seeing the heartbeat). I waited the 3 cyles (as my dr recomended), and got pregnant right away. I found out at 8 wks that I had a subchorionic hemmorrage, but was told that many people maintain a healthy pregnancy. But I had another m/c just before 12 wks in 9/08. Even though I could feel that something was wrong by the 9th wk of pregnancy, it was still a devastating experience.

Since then I have seen an infertility dr and geneticist. All tests came back normal except I have a heterozygous MTHFR mutation. The frustrating part is 30-40% of the population has this mutation and there are several studies that show conflicting results. Some say that it could have an effect on blood clotting (as my infertility dr agrees), and others say it has no affect on blood clotting because it is a hetero not homozygous mutation (as my geneticist agrees).

So, I have a prescription to take a low dose of Heparin once I start TTC again, but I don't think I will use it. I also have a script to take progesterone supp. once I start TTC.

It has taken several months to regain some normalcy, psychologically and physically. My best friend had a m/c, and I was able to lean on her, but it was hard b/c we got pregnant at the same time (my first time)so she was pregnant when I lost both. I could talk to her, but I didn't want to bring her down or scare her.

It was hard to talk to my husband b/c I couldn't bear to make him sad. So I just started talking to friends and family, and found out that several people have shared in this tragedy. Sharing my experience has really helped heal my soul.

I am in nursing school, so I have delayed our 3rd time trying until this summer. I am hoping for lucky #3, as it will be our 3rd time trying and our 3rd year anniversary.

I wish the best to the others that have had to suffer this emotional/physical tragedy and pray that you find a way to heal your soul.
