I haven't been on the site in a while, not really for any reason but been trying to keep myself busy. I think about all the mommy's & get on to check on ya guys. It's been a good month & a half since the D&E, and AF just came & went. I was suprised it came so quick. I was expecting it to take at least 2 months since last 2 m/c's took 2months+ to get AF. So as unpleasant as having a D&E is, it was a pretty easy procedure all around.
I tested + for alpha thalasemia. All I know about it is, my red blood cells aren't producing or carrying enough oxygen to my body. So if DH tests + for it, it would be the reason I'm miscarrying. Don't know what treatment is. DH & I are going thru genetic counseling in the next couple wks, meaning my DR's are giving both of us every test under the sun. Until I have every test back, we're not going near TTC. I refuse to get thru a 4th m/c, but it is in God's hands, so whatever his plan is, is his plan. So, I've got the MTHFR prob, now this alpha-thalasemia thing, I suppose I'm just glad DR's are finding things, instead of finding nothing, and having no reasons behind the m/c's.
I'm still staying +, with little bouts of depression, when I think about it, but overall I'm making it. I believe in God's plan, and I know THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON.
