Well the genetic testing came back as having an extra chromosome 20. Has anyone had this and went on to have a healthy pregnancy? My re said there is only a 2% chance of a repeat.... What would you do? He said we can start trying again in February which seems sooo far away:(
My heart goes out to you. It is so hard when you lose a baby. It is good that you Atleast got an answer to what was wrong, but still hard to hear I am sure.
Hopefully your next pregnancy will be a healthy normal one.
I was told it was just a matter of getting the right egg.
Cutter1974 is right. I had a miscarriage in December 2011. I also had genetic testing which came back 47xx+20. An extra 20th chromosome. I was 41 at the time. I tried again and got pregnant 3 months after the d&c. But also ended in MC. I was 42. Haven't gotten pregnant since. I read on line that an extra 20 is very common in miscarriages. But not necessarily common to get the same genetic abnormality again. I say mos definitely keep trying!!!!!
