6 Misscarridges, any hope on 7th pregnancy?...
I have had 6 missed misscarridges in the last 4 years and I’m 28 years old and have no children to date.
After the 3rd I was referred to a specialist who has done tests on me, my husband and the unsurveying foetus’s removed from my womb since and has not found any problems apart from a slightly elevated reading of something in my blood that suggested I was border line antiphospholipid syndrome which is known to cause misscarridge but I was borderline however he prescribed asprin and clexane which has unfortunately not worked so far. He also prescribed the hormone progesterone to see if this helps.
On 26th December 2013 I discovered I was pregnant for a 7th time and this time as well as the drugs listed above I have been put on a course of prednisole which is a steriod treatment as the gynacologist thinks my immune system may be attacking the placenta and these drugs may prevent it.
I had a scan last week to see how it was going and was surprised when the lady told me instantly there is a heart beat and everything looks fine and normal and that I was 7w 6d. I have another appointment next week to check again when I am hoping to be 2 weeks further and I have to say the suspense is killing me. I also have not told any friends or family about this time as hoping to surprise them with some exiting news some day soon.
Anyone have anything to say on this? Has anyone or does anyone know of anyone who has had 6 miscarriages and gone onto have a healthy baby? Anyone know anything about these steroids as I have heard that it is a controversial drug to prescribe for recurrent miscarriage and gynecologist has already told me if this doesn’t work there is nothing else to try. ;’-(
