Hi, so sorry to hear of your MC's
I know exactly how you feel as i too had 4 MC's over the course of March 2009 - August 2010.
1. My first pregnancy wasnt exactly planned but we wasnt on any form of contraception and were very excited for find out, i was almost 10 weeks when i found out.. had been busy that month and not even realised i had missed AF!! Had a scan at 12 weeks to find an empty sac! I had a MMC and ended up in hosp when i would have been 15-16 weeks, this ended beginning of June.
2. Second pregnancy was planned and i fell preg straight away after 1 cycle in July 2009. Doctor and MW said an early scan wasnt neccessary but because i couldnt relax i booked a private scan at 8 weeks to find no heart and was having another MMC. I lost this baby mid september at about 11-12 weeks.
3. We then stopped trying as i become very depressed and was putting a strain on our relationship but stopping trying also made me more depressed! I accidently fell preg around december 2009, pregnancy never confirmed but after a later AF and very painful and same as my previous MMC's was told more than likely another MC.
4. Started trying again properly May 2010 and finally preg August 2010 but suffered a normal early MC at 5 weeks.
Completely devestated but finally referred to hospital for tests for RMC, was told to stop TTC during this time as if i fell preg and suffered another MC they would need to start the tests all over again. I decided go against their advice and carried on TTC but we decided to 'not try' and just have fun... No charting or anything like this. Was hard when i had AF oct, nov & dec and just thought i was never going to have a baby!
Beginning of Jan i started back work as a 1-1 support worker for children with Autism, was a training day. Got an early night the night before but on that day i was just so so tired but just figured its because was first day back after 2 weeks! This carried on but still didnt think much of it.
I was due to have my AF around 11th Jan but didnt want to test and be disappointed again so didnt bother on that saturday. The saturday night had a few friends over for take away and a few drinks, after my first drink i wasnt feeling great, went quite dizzy and feeling sick so didnt have anymore. When we got into bed i told OH i would test in the morning! Got up Sunday morning, used FMU with FRER and positive come up very strong before the control line!!! Was over the moon and ran into OH to tell him.
Made a doc appt on the monday and was sent for early scan but was booked too early at 5 and a bit weeks, went to the appt but the MW i had seen with my previous MC's told me to come back the next week, so at 6 and a half weeks we went back and for the first time ever we had a HB!!
I was scanned at 6,8,10 and 12 weeks and all was great! My EDD was 16/09/11 Finally on our 5th pregnancy we were going to have a baby!!
I had quite a bad pregnancy, sickness the whole time amongst bleeds in the uterus then placental lakes of blood and other problems with my blood.
Was booked in for an induction at 38 weeks and at 38+3 on Mon 5th Sept 2011 i have birth to my beautiful DD.
Don't lose hope! I know how hard it is and how much it tears you up inside but you will get your longed for beautiful baby I know i didnt have the other problems you have but it will happen for you
