Exclamation pregnancy

Hello,

I have had two miscarriages and next year i want to try it again. This time with medicine of course. Does anyone recognize this? Can you still have a baby?
And which medicine do you have and are you sick of it?
Thanks for help!!!

Hi Nancy,

Thanks for your reaction!
I hope everything will be oke for you!
Do you have medicine now? Heparine with aspirine or prednison can help to keep your pregnancy.
Good luck en let me know how you're doing!!!

Hugzzz,

I had one miscarriage and almost 2yrs. of not being
able to get pregnant. Then I had a successful pregnancy.
In the hospital my baby's Dr asked me if I had Lupus.
It was the first time I had heard the word. I definitely
had the butterfly rash on the face but I figured it
was just from the pregnancy hormones. I was fine for
a number of years and then I got hit with a bad flare
and finally heard the word Lupus again. I spent a
couple years battling it and all the symptoms. Luckily
I didn't have any serious organ involvement so I have
been able to stay off meds. The symptoms are there
but to a lesser degree and I just try to take care
of myself, get rest and lessen my stress. Good Luck
on the pregnancies.

I had a lot of trouble getting pregnant even with infertility treatments. I did not miscarry, just could not get pregnant at all! With years of trying I did have two children. The second one was even harder to concieve than the first. I took baby aspirin during first trimester with second pregnancy. I did have high antiphospholipid antibodies which are associated with miscarriage. I also had contractions everyday from about 5 months on. Good Luck, Susan

Cool

Hi--I have 3 kids and the baby is 3 years old and I was on meds during the pregnacy--heprin,(blood thinner) medrol(steriods) and some women have flares during pregnacy but some like me have the best pregnacy of their lives--there is chance for it to go either way-- a good OB dr and keep your Rheumy involved are a must-even i had specialist in High risk Pregnacy and my baby had his 3rd birthday in November-now one thing if you use the steriods thru out the whole pregnacy your babys adrenal gland my be impaired (this was my understanding) at birth and they do a blood test on your baby before doing anything like a startle reflex -to make sure the baby's adrenal gland is working-if not they have to ween your baby off steriods that are in his/her system -so that the baby's adrenal gland will start functioning on its own--my baby's was fine--and I was on Medrol for the whole pregnacy--but everyone is different--so yes it is possible to have healthy pregnacy and a healthy baby-with the help of the drs and you ---so good luck!!! take care !

Hello, I guess since I'm soooo old I can answer alot of these questions.LOL I had more than a few misscarriages and finally, after 10 years, I had a beautiful little girl. I told my husband that it was the last time I was going to try. I found a fertility specialist, took in my 9+ years of temperature charts, started eating really healthy, and took relaxation classes that incorporated healing, and made up my mind it was now or never. The doctor actually took my husbands sperm and put into my uterus incase there was an allergic thing. I was 2 days late on my period and gagged on a piece of berry pie, so I knew I was pregnant. I immediately quit my job and doubled up on the relaxation classes. By the time I was 5 weeks the room was ready. My doctor was concerned that I already had this done and I might lose it. I told him that I was not going to. I only had one day of morning sickness and truly felt blessed. I have to say it was the best I ever felt in my life. Everyone is different though. Afterwards was a different story though. I was really ill for a few years after and could have no more children. Miracles happen everyday and I'm sure yours will too. Keep us updated. Good luck to you. Sandy B
