tones24 - December 2

Hi ladies....just wondering if anyone had any hope for me. I am 34 and have 2 beautiful children. One 6 and one 4 1/2. We tried for a 3rd and have had 3 miscarriages all at app 14 weeks. I was diagnosed with antiphopholipid antibodies however, The last miscarriage I was on fragmin injections (low dose heparin) and it still did not work. But my levels, when tested were normal. So I don"t know if there is another reason besides the antibodies and all my doctors can say is TRY AGAIN. But after such losses, I am not confident that I will have a healthy baby doing the same thing that I have been doing. Anyone have hope for me?

tones24, I am so sorry for your loss, I have been in your shoes many times, I have had 11 m/cs the last being August of this year. I was told at one point that I also had APS and was put on Lovenox also a low dose heparin and 81 mg of aspirin daily, needless to say I too had a m/c while on these meds. I just knew for sure I was going to be able to carry the baby to full term.

I too have 2 children and we would also love to have a third, it is hard.

I later found out that I do not have APS, I am now being seen by an RE, have you been seen by this kind of Dr? I have done ALOT of research and I have had probably ever type of test you can imagine and they all come back negative.

My RE is waiting for my cycle to come this month so I can have my progesterone checked and also have a biopsy done. I honestly believe that low progesterone is what is causing me to have these m/cs, if you go to yahoo and type in progesterone and miscarriages you will get alot of good information, this Dr named Dr John Lee (I believe that's his name) feels if you have had 3 or more m/cs it is due to lack of progesterone and I believe it.

With all that I have been through alot I don't understand I never question and ask God why, I feel that everything happens for a reason! good or bad, happy or sad, and I know that God has wonderful things in store for us all that are TTC.

Sometimes it does not happen when we are trying or when we want it too, but it will happen at the right time.

In closing I will say don't give up and just pray and believe for your will happen.

You are at the right place for support we are all here for you :), feel free to write back and if I can answer any more questions you have I will.

Take care and God Bless....Tiffany

I am so sorry for both of your losses. I was in the same boat though 4 losses and one daughter before any losses. I am 43 years old and now 37 weeks along with a baby boy. I had my daughter with no problems and then the four losses. Anyway-I did do heparin therapy this time and it seems to have helped but I can't go back and try another way.

I wish you both the best of hope and tests!!!!
