If you don't mind my asking, do you know what made the difference that you were able to carry your DS to term?
Well, we have a number of theories.
After my third miscarriage we had a full medical workup done (including a hysterosalpingogram, which i heartily do NOT recommend, ich!) Anyway, everything came back normal. In other words, one of the world's leading specialists in recurrent miscarriage (who happens to be at U of Utah) had no answers. SO, it wasn't physical, logical, etc. Of course, that means it was beyond man or medicine's power to solve.
I legally adopted will in late march of 05. I conceived Sammy on the next cycle. We think perhaps the Lord wanted us to make sure to get that adoption offiical, and to not be distracted from it.
After the medical workup we concluded that medicine was not the answer, and did a better job of handing things over to God. Not just asking for health and wellness and so on, but actually asking His guidence in every choice--everything from which care provider and what birth location to what vitamins to take (or not take). We gave it all over to Him. Perhaps it was that we needed to demonstrate the trust. I don't know.
We do knwo that both dh and I feel like the recurrent miscarriages are a thing of the past. We suspect that in the future the kids will come fairly fast and fairly easily.
(FWIW, I had three 'certain' miscarriages--all between 12-15wks. According to my charts, I also had 3 others, but none of the pregnancies were long enough to get a positive test...i jus tknow my charts, you know? And those were pregnancy charts... Anyway, that's in 2.5 years. I seem to get pregnant quite easily, it's just the carrying that was the issue!)
