I'm so sorry for your loss. I have had friends discover thyroid issues, low progesterone, or Rh factor causes for their miscarriages. Not that any of those are an explanation for you, but it might be some place to start. Be gentle with yourself, mama.

I am so so very sorry for your loss!!!!
You absolutely should share this. Bad things happen and it is your right to share your experience and what has happened (happening to you). Your talking about this does NOT cause this to happen to someone else, just makes them feel less alone if it does happen. I am thinking of you and your lo and praying (as that is what I do) that you can take care of yourself physically and emotionally during this trying time.
I have lost 4 lo. 2 in a row each time and each within a period of 6 months. It is absolutely devistating. Hang in there mama.
I wish the same to you . It just sucks doesn't it?
Hey - I actually do have thyroid issues and i am medication for that and it is monitored very closely esp when i am pregnant. My progesterone level is high - i had that checked when i found out i was pg this time. My dr was very proactive with the testing - THANK GOD - and everything is normal. I have been researching stuff online and all the tests they give you after a repeat miscarriage I already had when we were trying to get pg the first time around (2.5 years it took!) and everything was normal. I am looking for answers and solutions but nothing has come to me yet to make me say "ok at least there is a reason" not that it makes it ok but it is something . Idk
I'm so sorry for your loss. How heartbreaking!
I don't know if it's something you'd be interested in, but I have a friend who started a miscarriage support network. Basically "doulas" who offer comfort and emotional support for those who have lost their babies. She herself has been through numerous miscarriages, and there's no easy answer for why, though I can imagine how that question must haunt you when you lose a baby. If you want to look into that support network, the website is here: http://theamethystnetwork.org/
I wish you the best, and hope that you'll find comfort and strength in the coming days and years.
I am going there right now. Thanks
I am so sorry, and can completely relate. I carried 3 babies without any problems and then suddenly lost 3 in early pregnancy, right in a row. It's such a hard thing to trust your body after that. I'll spare you all the talk about how your body knows whether the baby was developing right or not, because I know how irritating it is to be told what you already know. It just SUCKS.
I kept going back and forth on whether to write this bc I didn't want to upset anyone but I think I just need support. I lost the baby. I went in for my US on Thursday and there wasn't a heartbeat. I went in for my d&c on friday. i am devastated but i think i was more prepared ( not really but just knew what to expect?) this time around. I want to go crawl in the corner and cry my eyes out but i have two little ones to keep me going :0 ) I just keep saying to myself - we did every precaution how could this happen again? I keep thinking that it really didn't happen- how can this happen to me twice in the past 8 months? I dont know I just want answers and to be pg again and carry to term. It just sucks. I am praying that I am the only one dropping out of the club. I wish you all the best and the pregnancy and birth that you dream of .
MegEliz -- I'm so sorry for your loss. I understand that feeling of unfairness for multiple losses, especially so close together. It's heartbreaking and it's TOTALLY not fair. I am so, so sorry for you. I encourage you to find some support. There are some great pregnancy loss threads here on Mothering -- amazing women who can relate. You may also consider finding some local support group through your OBs office, church, etc. I attend a local group every month and it is SO helpful.
