Reoccurring Second Trimester Miscarriage

I have had two painfully similar miscarriages. One at 17 weeks and one at 18 weeks.

I'll explain how they both go...

I have first trimester bleeding from about 7-11 weeks off and on. Sometimes clots but mostly spotting.

Then at about 13 weeks i start to get cramping... pretty intensly. I was told both times it was ligaments. My cervix stays closed but eventually the cramping gets worse and then one day it gets so bad and my water breaks. Usually the week before i have lower back pain as well as a really hard time urinating if i can at all.

My water always break while trying to urinate.

After my water breaks its pretty much labor. Both babies were fine, strong heart beats perfect size and no genetic abnormalities. (I had the second one tested.)

I have been tested. My uterus is not retroverted (not pregnant i don;t know what it is pregnant) I do not have factor five or any other genetic clotting disorder.

THey did blood work. When i was in labor with my son. I did have a lupus anticoagulant (Meekly positive) and one of the other three they test for.

Also my placenta showed signs of infection but when they did a culture there was no infection aerobic or anaerobic.

Has any one heard of this?

So far i have been told that i might just always have an infection and theres nothing they can do about it. That antibiotics make it worse. I've been told i might have a blood clotting issue but not enough to warrant testing. Pretty much two specialists and two ob's have said theres nothing that can be done and i just have to hope it doesn't happen again, but the chances are not in my favor especially since it has happened twice now. I have no live children and these are my only two pregnancies, i have no fibroids either or cysctic ovaries. All in all i am very healthy.

But i cannot figure out why every doctor i see pretty much tells me "That *****... good luck cause you going to need it."

Is there anything else i can do?
