Hi I'm pretty new to this but read a lot of these pages to get answers. i have two healthy children both natural births and are now 9 and 7. I am trying for another baby but previously in February at 8 weeks pregnant had a miscarriage. It was heartbreaking as you don't really think it will happen to you especially after Having two children. I recently found out about 3 weeks ago I was pregnant again but then sadly for the second time two days ago miscarried again. I have a blood disorder called factor v leiden and I no this can be a complication with trying to Carry a baby. I was on clexane with both of my two children and again with my first miscarraige but Was two late with my second. I have been to see the doctor and they think it could be to do with my blood. I was just wondering if there was anyone else who has this complication. The doctors told me with my second child that the older I get the harder it will be for me to carry a baby but I'm only 27 and now worried that this is it for me.

Argh - we appear to have a slight glitch that's not letting me post proper links for the minute. Until we can get it fixed, here's the slightest messier (but no less effective) way to find that thread: http://www.madeformums.com/forum/trying-to-conceive/trying-to-get-pregnant-after-a-miscarriage-part2/169762.html

Hi jane. I'm so sorry to hear of your losses. I know how devastating this can be; having miscarried my first 2 pregnancies too. There are so many difficult & complex emotions to work through. Take time to heal physically & emotionally, talk through your feelings as mich as you can & use all the support that you hopefully have around you.
im sorry i don't know a huge amount about blood disorders. I had all the tests for those after my second loss but everything came back clear. My doctor had said though if that there was a problem with a clotting disorder for example, that there are medications they can give to try & stop this causing further mc's. Hopefully your doctor is looking into this more with you?.
as helen said above, there is a thread where there are a lot of ladies who have been through the same experiences (myself included on that thread). we are all a great source of support to one another... One thing that is really helpful about it is that there are so many unknowns after a mc... What is going on with your body, 'is this normal' etc... You will always find someone on there who can help with those questions & that is so helpful as the not knowing can be so very hard.
if you want to talk more here then i am here for you as much as i can be... & when you feel ready come on over to the mc thread. X
