I'm very offended by your comments. If you want to use that kind of logic one could say YOU shouldn't feel so bad because YOU don't know what you are missing since you have not one child. No person should feel less sad or be more "greatful" because they have one or two or no kids.

ALL women and ALL men go through the same kind of pain when losing a baby and no one person's situation should or should not feel any better or any worse for any reason whatsoever.

I know your pain is speaking. But I hope you realize that what you said hurt me and maybe other people. I have a 2 year old and just suffered two miscarriages in the last 5 months. The last one I almost died from the blood loss. I had a c section and am afraid that is the reason. Heck, I'm afraid for whatever the reason is.

I am sooo angry at those who don't want kids and have an "accident" and get pregant or those who smoke and do drugs or could care less about parenting and more about partying on friday night. But that is MY anger and MY issue NOT theirs. Same to you.

So please, support ALL people who lose babies, for it is not up to you to judge who should or should not be having babies or feeling bad for their loss :(

I am currently going thru the second miscarriage in the last 5 months. Both of the pregnancies ended around 7 weeks. I have 5 year old son from the previous marriage. I feel scared to be pregnant again. I was never prepared for this kind of loss. I was so happy when we found out that I got pregnant. Now I am looking into the future one with the fear in my heart.

I have a beautiful 2 yr old little girl who amazes me everyday, but I would really love a baby brother or sister for her. I had my first miscarriage in July 09 and then my second April 10. It is such a hard thing to come to terms with I just thought everything would be fine after having my daughter and was so shocked to find that it wasn't. The physical side you can get over its the emotional side that takes a lot longer to heal. We will definately try again and wont give up till our family feels complete, I think everyones stories are such a support for anyone going through this, wish you all lots of luck xx

I FEEL YOUR PAIN, I have a 9 year old son and was 9 weeks pregnant when I started to miscarry on Sat may 30th 2010. I am still in the process of the miscarriage. It's hard Ive had 3 one in 2005, 2007, and now. i am 29 y/o and am so rady for a 2nd child. I am sad, embarrassed, everything. I hope and pray I get pregnant soon again and this time it works.

I googled "2 miscarriages in a row" and this post popped up. I just did D&C and suffered a massive pain & cramps last night. This is my 2nd m/c in a row this year, In Jan I lost my first one it was 7 wks I didnt go surgery & let myself bleed to death as I blamed myself so much not take good care of the bb. Doc said i was just bad luck then so i decided to try again after 2 mths, it was fine initially i felt all the symptons n they were so strong so i thought this must be a healthy one so excited n also very careful about wat i ate n rest but still after 8 wks, when i went to do the u/s they told me there's no hb, GP said it doesnt sound very convincing so she referred me to the OB. OB saw me the day before yesterday and confirmed the bad news, so they sent me immediately to the O.R. yesterday.
Now i feel like the whole world's so grey although i still smile to my hsb and comfort him i m okay but deeply i felt so sore and lost my faith. I dont think i will have the courage to try again in short time but i will share if i have any new updates. wish you all good luck. i now wish i can trade my bbs life back with anything i own

Hi, I have a 2yr old boy and went through pregnancy fine but this January (2010) I had my first miscarriage and now again going through my second miscarriage (June 10).  I phoned the doctor to see if I can get referred to do some tests but told me I have to have three miscarraiges before anyone will see me.  I find this crazy, for a start it could take ages to get pregnant again plus I do not want to go through this again if it can be helped.  I need some hope we will be able to give my son a brother or sister.  You really don't expect it to happen to you, feel so empty and upset and sorry for my husband and son too.  I am soooo lucky though to have my healthy son which is what keeps me strong and gives me some hope.

I am going thru that experience right now. I have a 7 year old daughter but I`ve had 2 misscariages after her birth. I am very sad and scared that I will not be able to have a normal pregnancy. The doctors tested me for a lot of things ,apparently there is something off with my hormones which is not allowing my pregnancies to go full term. They have put me on some medicine to control my hormone level. Hopefully I will have a full term pregnancy next time around.

I just read your post about your doctor telling you that you need to have 3 mcs b4 they will test you. See another doc, I recently had a 2nd mc and have been referred to a specialist for testing. I felt like you and didn't want to try again until I had everything checked out. I know how you feel, it's so emotionally draining, have been crying reading everyone's stories. I have a healthy 2yr old who I fell pregnant with 1st try and so has been a rude shock  ttc for 18mths with 2 losses... my 38 b'day is coming up so I feel my time is running out.
I wish eveyone luck, stay strong in your mind and soul. Bless you all xx

Im just 24, and i never have a baby... i had 2 m/c dec. 28, 09 and july 17,2010. Same case, they supposed to be 8 weeks, but in ultrasound results showed only 6 weeks without heartbeat! i hate the fact every time im pregnant one of my cousin are also pregnant same weeks with me, but im the one always giving up. I'm scared trying it again, although everyone says we're both young ( my husband is 29). He really wants to have a baby as soon as possible, but im thinking to try to conceive after a year. But hope God will bless me a healthy baby without any complication until birth. Anybody here have the same story with me?

Hi MRIEKIE,

I just read your story, and it seems so similar to mine.  I have a healthy 3-year old daughter.  We have been trying to conceive since Feb of 2009.  I got pregnant in November 2009 and lost it at 11 weeks in January 2010.  Had a normal ultrasound at 6 and 7 weeks, but baby died and I had horrible loss of blood at home, was rushed to ER and had emergency D & C.  I then became pregnant in May 2010, but just found out baby died on Aug 19.  Had D & C yesterday.  I was almost 14 weeks, with two normal ultrasounds at 6 weeks and 10.5 weeks.  They are going to test this fetus to see what happened.  I too will be 38 in April and fear my time is up.  I am completely and utterly devastated, as I thought sure this one would be fine.  I am hoping they will send me to a specialist after just two miscarriages and not wait until 3!  Let me know what is happening with you.  Good luck to you!

Hello ladies,
I am sorry for losses and previous losses and my prayers are with you guys. I have the most Beautiful and intelligent little 3 year old you could ever lay eyes on 3 years ago.In this past March I had a miscarriage at 5 weeks expelled naturally  and DH and I waited until 3 menstrual cycles to try again. So we finally fell pregnant and this time I thought everything was fine I'm suppose to be nine weeks but at the ultrasound there was no heartbeat and the sac was measuring at 5 weeks which means that's when we lost our baby.I had morning sickness and sore boobs and cant understand this. I go for a d&c tommorrow but I want to try again soon and I am devasted. What could be going wrong and idea's please..........

Hello All,
I can totally relate.  I have a 7yr old and 2 yr old that were conceived first try. I was 30 and 35 yrs old.  Now we are trying for a 3rd.  I had a miscarriage in May 2010, with a 9 1/2 week with no heart beat had a D/C,  and again in September, being 4 weeks pregnant, spontaneously started to bleed.   Just went to OB today and she said that 2 miscarrages is "normal" or expected statistically for a 37 year old and our body recognizes when DNA isn't correct, it is a good thing.  However she suggested that the baby aspirin for the Anti Cardiolipin isn't needed because that is usually a miscarriage later on in the trimesters.  I asked about progesterone and she said that I had  2 healthy babies and that my progesterone just wouldn't change, even if I was pre menopausal.  Although I am reading above that that may not be the case.  She did give me hope in saying that a 3rd time is statistically impossible, but again reading above doesnt seem like that is true either.  I have a friend saying go right to specialist. Also she suggested waiting one cycle before getting pregnant  to let the hormones return to normal..  Does anyone think that the ladies above that got pregnant right away and miscarried again, that this could have been an issue?   Any ideas or comments?
So have hope ladies, for those of us older and with 2 m/c under our belt, I truly believe that it is possible. However I am taking a baby aspirin once a day and she is doing an endometrial biopsy to see if I am low in progesterone, it is done 10 days after the day you ovulated and they time it back from when you get your period.  Really easy.

My story is like the rest, but wondering what happened when someone finally went to specialist.  Did they find anything out, or were the regular OB/GYN right that 2 is normal... for a 37 year old.

I just had my second miscarriage in a row and had a D and C on Friday. Have two girls, ages 4 and 2.5, with totally easy pregnancies. First MC took me totally by surprise but this time I guess i was a little more pessimistic and therefore was somewhat expecting things to go wrong (not that it wasn't upsetting though!!) My husband and I are wondering what to do next-I am almost 34 and hoping to have at least one more child. In the meantime trying to be grateful for the two beautiful ones we already have! Should we do testing, how long to wait, etc?

I am in same boat but older.  I went to my regular OB 2 weeks ago and said that this is normal for older woman to have 2 miscarriages, 3 probably not so.  She did no testing and i didn't want to waste any more time or emotions.  I went to specialist and so glad I did.  She gave me tons of explanations, and answers to all my questions.  Did tons of testing, and didn't get all results yet, but says I probably just have more bad eggs because of being older and that one gets picked to be developed and gets fertilized and therefore miscarriage.  She can boost my odds with different things, one  being taking FSH and having 3 eggs mature instead of 1.  The chance that all 3 are bad is slim.  She also looked at how many eggs in each ovary are there which I found out is one important fact.  I had 10 and 5 and therefore ok.  I could also do IUI or just me and my hubby at home, but she said that having the iui brings my odds back to 20% chance like normal.  We don't have any problem conceiveing, just the miscarriage. So if I can get a good egg, we are in.  I hope this helps, sounds like your situation is like mine.  35 years old, your chances get worse and at 38 also, so don't waste time if you want another, go to fertility specialist now.  Keep me posted

I am 26 years old and I have a healthy little girl who turned two in August. My pregnancy with her was such a blessing- perfect in every way with no difficulties. We started TTC in May 2010 and found out I was pregnant on July 28th, 2010. On August 20th I began spotting after straining with a bowel movement (sorry for TMI). I was told by my Dr. it was probably just from the straining. On August 30th we had an ultrasound and there was no heartbeat. I miscarried naturally on September 3rd.
I just found out I'm pregnant again on October 29th but began spotting again after a bowel movement on Novemeber 1st. I had two HCG levels drawn and the Dr. confirmed that although my HCG levels are rising, they aren't rising nearly as fast as they should and that miscarriage is inevitable. So now I'm just waiting...again....for my body to react and to expel everything.
I'm so heartbroken and I feel like I can't handle this devastation again. It doesn't help that I'm surrounded by women who are pregnant, most of whom are on their second or third healthy pregnancy with no miscarriages. Not that I would ever wish a miscarriage on anyone but I'm just wondering what we did to deserve this. I feel so alone.
I feel guilty that there is going to be such a large age difference between our children than we had planned. I always pictured our kids waking up together on Christmas morning and being excited together, playing together, and being close.
I'm just so heartbroken and confused. If anyone can relate or wants to chat, feel free to email me at ***@****
Thanks for listening,
Megan

Of all the pain and disappointment im going throught the worst one is the thought of my chikdren's age gap!! Because I too wanted them to be best of buddies!! I havent had any tests, nothing at all. They ll do it all now that ive lost the 3rd baby..

I keep reminding my self "Submission to God's will is the best companion''.

I wish you many happy babies :) XX

Hey everyone.  It is so upsetting to hear all the problems people are having with pregnancies. I myself had an ectopic pregnancy 2 years ago where they removed my left fallopian tube, now in Oct 2010 my husband and i started to try again but miscarried at 2 weeks, so very early, i then managed to get pregnant again in dec 2010 after waiting one month for my cycle to get back to normal so i could tell what date i would get pregnant, but am now miscarrying as i write this at 5 and a half weeks.  Im feeling very sad as we both want children, my husband has a 19 yr old daughter from a previous relationship.  Im now wanting to get pregnant again which doesnt seem to be the problem so far but am scared to miscarry again, ive been told they will only start testing after 3 miscarriages but have made an appointment with the dr for next week to ask if anything can be done, scared to miscarry and scared to have another ectopic and lose another tube so ivf would be a must...............

i am currently in the same situation as you. Had a miscarriage Aug10 when i was 11 weeks along. Thought the scan showed that the baby had stopped growing at 6 weeks. Found out in Jane that i was pregnant again to lose it at 6 weeks again. Dr told me the same that they won't do anything till u have had 3. How awful and wrong is that? I think having 2 in a row should be enough for u to go through without them telling u u have to have another before they do anything.I have 3 Healthy children aged 20,18 and 8 and these are my first miscarriages.

I want to start by thanking everyone who has posted a comment.  I am 31 and have a healthy 2 year old son.  I got pregnant with my second child in September only to miscarry in October.  I got pregnant with my third in January to again miscarry in February.  My OB doctor is sending me to a reproductive specialist and she sent me for blood work which I had today.  I'm looking for success stories.   I too wonder how I could have a healthy, easy pregnancy and then go on to have two miscarriages in a row.  I'm almost hoping they find something with the blood work.  I would hate to have them say it's "nothing, keep trying" and we'll keep our fingers crossed.  Best of luck to everyone out there!

I had two normal, wonderful pregnancies and deliveries. I miscarried March '10 and had a D&C at 10 weeks, believing I lost the baby at 8 weeks. I was devastated beyond words. We have been trying ever since. On clomid, I got a + result on Feb. 27th. Nervous, I called my DR and asked if I could come in early for testing. At 5 weeks and 3 days, my pregnancy hormone level was 805 Tuesday, and Thursday it only jumped to 926. (I was told this number should double) They asked I come back in for more blood work Monday to see where the level is, and an ultrasound on Tuesday. My Prest. level was 14 and they said that was fine. I am scared to death. I am praying non stop. I do not want to go through what I did last year. They told me 10% of womens PG hormone levels do not rise normally. I hope I am in that 10% and everything will go well next week. I am 35 yrs old. Any advice?

I had 4 full-term pregnancies in a row.  The kids are now almost 11, 9, 5 and 3.  I am 41.  I have just had 2 miscarriages in a row, almost exactly 6 months apart.  I would really like to have at least one more but am afraid since the first miscarriage took me totally by surprise when I went into the first ultrasound believing that I was almost done with my first trimester, and out of the woods with no complications, just to discover that the baby had no heartbeat.  After some time, I accepted that I was statistically due for a miscarriage and got pregnant again after 2 months of trying.  This time the pregnancy symptoms were the worst that they had ever been, but that didn't end up meaning much.  I had a tiny bit of spotting last week so they did an ultrasound, I was believed to be 9 or 10 weeks, and discovered a blighted ovum with a gestational sac of 5-6 weeks. They supplemented my progesterone in both of the pregnancies that resulted in miscarriage but had never needed that before. Has anyone else had a similar experience and gone on to have a healthy pregnancy? Is so, did you make any changes or do anything different that resulted in your future success?

Thank you for sharing your stories. I'm sorry anyone else has had to go through this kind of pain.  I'm 41 having married for the 1st time at age 40.  I'd never been pregnant before but had raised my sisters teenager from age 15-19.  3 months after getting married (December 2009)I was pregnant and shocked to learn my pregnancy was ectopic.  I kept my tube but learned after that it was totally blocked. In October 2010, I found out I was again pregnant at that it was NOT ectopic but there was no heartbeat and I miscarried at 6 weeks (just 2 weeks after my mother's memorial service).  I never dreamed I would get pregnant again so soon but after once cycle I was pregnant again (December 2010) - it had taken 9 months between preg. #1 and #2.  I was so fearful of miscarriage and ectopic and Praised God for every queazy day but unfortunately I went for a checkup at 18 weeks and found my baby had died sometime between 15 and 16 weeks. I'm devastated as is my husband. I delivered the baby in the maternity ward and came home empty.  It is so confusing.  Part of me wants to try again but my husband doesn't want to go through this again.  I'll be 42 in September....it's hard to watch your dreams of a family just get washed out to sea.

I casually knew a woman at church who had 5 miscarriages and then delivered a healthy baby boy. I imagine she was in her mid-late 30s by the time she had her son. Not sure if they had any intervention but I hope that can be a little encouraging. I know it is so scary and overwhelming (1 ectopic, 2 miscarriages -- 1 at 16 weeks all in one year).  We want answers but none come.  It's painful and feels like no one else in the world has been there but some of us have. Well not 4 - I know that feels so unfair...but I'm 3 out of 3 with my pregnancies being unsuccessful.  Bless you.

I have had 3 children when i found out that I was pregnant for a fourth time, I was over joyed, though it was a surprise it was a welcome one. I had always planned on having 4. I found out that the baby didnt make it when I went in for an u/s at 12 weeks, my baby had only made it to 9 weeks. I didnt think that I would ever get over the loss. That was April of 2007.  Four years later almost to the day I lost another, just this passed april of 2011. Doctors dont have any answers for me.. just bad luck, it happens...
I really have appreciated all the stories that I have read here and hope that the next time is the right time.

I am 35 and fell pregnant with No. 1 in December 2010 2nd cycle. Unfortunately at 9 week scan baby had no heartbeat and had to have a D&C. Was advised to wait 2 cycles to try again, well my first AF didn't arrive until 9 weeks later! Took 4 cycles to become pregnant again in September 2011 and unfortunately that also ended at 8 weeks as it was ectopic. Had to have a laparoscopy and D&C. I will start trying again after 1 AF this time. Will do the SMEP plan and this is what worked for us last time. I just want a baby!

I have 2 little girls, ages 5 1/2 and 19 months. Oct 2010 we found out we were pregnant, and had a miscarriage in Dec 2010 at 11 weeks, but baby only measured 7.5 weeks. The baby died 2 days after we saw the heartbeat. We got pregnant again Sept 2010 and a week after we found out, we had a miscarriage at about 6 weeks. We just found out today that we are pregnant again and i'm scared to death. I'm praying every thing goes good this time. I really have confidence that it will since i've had 2 normal pregnancies and deliveries.

Your story give me inspiration to try again.I am 40 years old.Within the last year,I had 2 m/c.The first m/c I was 7 weeks,and the second m/c ,I was 18 weeks.My baby boy.(smile).After having 9 healthy,full term babies ages 20 years-1 year.I could not understand why I can not hold a baby to full term.The doctors explained that it was not nothing I did,but with age you have a high chance of having a m/c.I know God is in control of everthing.There is many women having babies later in life.

Thought I would post an update to my situation.  Well I did try again and the result was the same, another blighted ovum this past December. So now I am at 4 healthy pregnancies in a row, followed by 3 marriages in a row.  When I spoke with my OB after the ultrasound that showed the second blighted ovum she and I already started to discuss additional testing and specialists.  She has brought that up after the second miscarriage but I was not ready to go there then.  I she did refer me to a local specialist, who I made an appointment with before I even had the D & C (12/16).  My first consultation with the specialist is tomorrow.  My OB also had the tissue from the D & C sent out for testing.  I am also still waiting for the results of that testing.  It was at her recommendation, as well as my desire, that I am proceeding with a specialist.  She confessed that she had tried all that she could come up with to provide me with a better outcome and that she had nothing more and that she felt it if I wanted to continue to try that I needed the help of a specialist to determine if more could/should be done than just chalking it up to bad luck.  Finally, she did order additional blood work for me last week to test my glucose/insulin levels over the past three months.  I have gained some weight and deceased my level of exercise since my last successful pregnancy.  I had gestational diabetes in the last 3 of 4 successful pregnancies, with it starting sooner and being more difficult to control in each subsequent pregnancy. This may also be a cause of the fetal demise and blighted ovums.  I will update again after I meet with the specialist.

Well meeting with the specialist was a huge waste of time and money.  Apparently since everything about me is normal, and as it should be to have a baby, except that I just turned 42 a month ago, all he could tell me was that with my history the only likely issue is my age and old eggs that no longer work, as I don't seem to be having any trouble getting pregnant.  His advise was that I should really just think long and hard about whether I want to continue to go through this heartbreak, like I haven't done that already?  He did say that he could run some blood work if I wanted, although he doesn't expect that it will show anything since I had 4 successful pregnancies before the 3 miscarriages, but that antibodies can change over time.  I may have the blood work done, just to be sure before I try to conceive again.  Anyone out there in their early 40s that has been through this or is going through a similar situation now that came help provide some direction or inspiration?

Hi,
I also have had 5 health children and last year m/c in april (7weeks) and Dec (6weeks)
We would like to try again but afraid to do it.  I had my kids later in life (i will be 40 this year)
I guess I should thank God that he gave me 5 healthy ones already, but my son prays every night for a little brother (he has 4 sisters).

I had a miscarriage in June of 2011 and then gave birth to a healthy little boy in June of 2012. I just had another miscarriage yesterday and am devastated! I really want at least 2 more babies. Has this pattern happened to anyone else? It's so sad to lose a pregnancy, even if it's early on. I get so upset thinking about all of the people that have babies and don't have to struggle through the sorrow of miscarriages.

HI sadie sorry to hear your news not fun are they, I have never had a d & c with mine either and i have had two miscarriages in twelve months am 44 and going for it one more time. My period is late today and i have fingers crossed for third time lucky or third time out! I have a beautiful son 7 and would love a sibling for him. Yes very sad I did not know it was so common. I think maybe stress yes plays a big role as does age and weight and maybe a million other factors lol Hope you can stay positive as I have and am scared this time if I am again I will definately be putting up my feet and not moving furniture around or carrying heavy items like I have done in the past as I feel you never know this may have contributed. Wish you all the best and anyone else trying. make sure you take the folate I have definately been doing for many months.

I have 3 live children 12, 11, and 7 yrs old. I had Mireana IUD birthcontol for 5 years and had it removed in March of 2013. In April 2013 I had a positive home preg test and by the begining of May, I had miscarried (around 5-6 weeks) and my HCG level was back down to 2 by May 13. Then in June of 2013 I had another positive home pregnancy test and this preg lasted until 3 months. I had a good ultra sound scan and heard a strong heart beat at 170.  On 8/22 I had slight bleeding, major cramping, and some back pain. I went into labor and the e.r. right away and had to have an emergency D&C. This was 2 days ago. The doctor said the placenta was big and my uterus was good. But the baby just Stopped growin around 9 weeks. The fetal tissues is being tested, He tested me for a lupus antigen. I went to my reg Dr. yesterday and had lots of blood tests ran and Xrays ran just for my sanity. I get the results back in two weeks, which seems like forever. So I am wondering why I could have 3 healthy children and be unable to sustain a pregnancy now. I am so devistated. Should ever we try again? You ladies understand the pain. All of my children have the same father, if that makes a difference(as far a genetics)  Please help. I desperately want to try again and so does he BUT I am terrified. And anyone have suggestions on how long to wait after a D&C ? Our OBGYN thinks itvan unfortunate coincidence even though he an tests.

I had a MC back in August 13, and then fell pregnant in Dec 13 and have a beautiful 1 yr old. I just had a MC and am hoping once I get the all clear I can have TTC. Has anyone alternated between MC's and healthy pregnancies?
All the tests came back find, so they have no idea why I have had 2 5 week miscarriages.

I have had three healthy babies. One when I was 21 and another when I was 24 and the last when I was 31. I am 33 now and have just had two miscarriages my husband and I thought because we had two young we would just have one more. But soon realized we wanted baby number four. My first miscarriage was at 5 weeks. Which was awful. My second I got pregnant two months after and miscarried at ten weeks. Apparently I was supposed to be that but the sac was seven weeks and no baby. So my body still thought I was pregnant  that was the worst thing in the world I have ever gone through. My husband says we are done. But it;s been three months which is what my doc said to wait and we just gave our changing table to someone we know that is as far as I wouldve been. Im so mad and sad all the time about it. He doesnt get it at all. To him it was an idea. To me it was real. And I have a whole in my heart. I imagined the new baby sharing a room with my youngest. And now it wont ever be. How can I make him try again with me?
