I am 27 with Graves diease, B- blood and have 2 healthy boys, 7 and 1 yr. Since my 1 yrs old, I have been trying to get pregnant. I got pregnant in January and 13 weeks later miscarried at home. I didnt get the rhogram shot. In July I got l pregnant again, and 12 weeks later, miscarried again. I didn't get the rhogram shot again. This totally slipped my mind. My mother brought it to my attention today and now I am totally freaked out. I guess my questions are: Can I still get the shot 9 weeks after the miscarriage? I still have breast milk? is that making me miscarriage? Is it in my best interest to get the shot? If I get pregnant again, is it true I will miscarry or have a still birth full term? 9-1-08 I had the worst period ever. I was an emotional wreck. I sleept 16+ hours a day. One minute I would be laughing, next crying, and next a raging *****. I was very distant and rude, mean , "loveless" to my husband. Next anxiety kicked in real bad. Whats going on? Any advise will really help. ......oh ya one more question, this might sound stupid.....I read that rh- women and only birth male babies? is this true?
I'm so sorry about all of your problems. Unfortunately, I don't know ANYTHING about Grave disease but I only wanted to wish you luck and hope that someone else will chime in who knows about this. I can only assume that maybe your medications can cause some sort of hormonal imbalance?? I'm only guessing. But a hormonal imbalance can cause mood swings like that. Maybe you can try googling the side effects of the medicine you're taking. And I'm sure that after having a miscarriage your body will have to readjust and your next AF would be a little whacky. If you don't get a response from anyone else from this forum, try asking over on the experts forum and maybe a doctor can answer your questions about when to take the medication or shot you are asking about.
