I just M/C yesterday after being 6 weeks 3 days PG. I'm so upset I just don't know how to express it. Just the day before I visited the doc cause I lost the one and only symptom...tender Breast...she told me maybe my hormone have gone down so she prescribed me a hormone called Utrogestan, the active ingredient is Natural Micronized Progesterone, which she asked me to insert 2 capsule into the vagina. I had done this that very night, but I needed to go the toilet after 4 hrs and I think the medicine all came out. The next day I was not feeling too good so I called her and she said that just the day before we saw the heart beat of the baby and everything was fine, but to come by and see her. But I started bleeding....like the first day of your period. I was soooo scared!! When she checked me out, the baby was not there anymore....she said we didn't have to do an O/P but she gave me an injection and a tablet to contract my uterus. I have a appointment with her next week once the bleeding stop. She told me and my hubby to try again next month...and not to let this affect our decision on having a baby......but i'm so scared....I lost a big part of me last night with the baby, what are the chances this could happen again.....I mean this was my first and i hope last M/C and will I have the same problem next time?????? Could I have a low hormone thingy again?
I need some advice and lotsssss of TLC
Hi Aloo I am sorry to hear of your loss.I have been there.I had four miscarriages.Although I don't know much about the low hormones,genetic testing showed I have antiphospholipid syndrome which my blood was clotting and pregnancies were only getting 50%blood and oxygen.But I am pregnant now eighteen weeks I have been on heparin injections twice day to thin out blood since my first month.So please don't give up hope.I am sure if doc could keep you on hormone meds while trying to conceive it will help a great deal.In the meantime just remember what I was always told for my m/s "All things happen for a reason my last pregnancy the baby had three chromosomes so if it would have survived it would have been very deformed.So god is looking out for all of us!!Another thing that may help is to get on prenatel vitamins before conceiving again I hear that replenishes the vitamins and can help provide stronger pregnancy.My prayers are with you and please don't lose hope <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/angel.gif">
Thank you so much for all your good wishes and concerns.....i'm just so down right now. But i just can't believe it some time that i M/C. I want to try again this month but am so not sure. My doc told me to continue take all the vitiams just like i am P/G.
I wish you the best of everthing and hope everything goes fine for you.
Aloo~ im sooooooo sorry to hear of your loss its a very sad thing for you and your dh.
try to remember GOD is looking out for you and on your side through this all. There will still be a baby in your future I will say a prayer for you. take care of yourself and try and rest a while.
WISHIN FOR A BABY GIRL
Aloo: M/C is very difficult to go through at any point in your pregnancy. I had a m/c at 15wks and another at 6wks. The reasons for my m/c were low progesterone levels. I was put on progesterone in my 5th wk with the first pg, but m/c one week after stopping the meds at 15wks. I couldn't believe that it was happening to me. I remembered thinking, "these kinds of things happen to other people, not me!" Of all the dreams and hopes that pg women think about, m/c isn't one of them!
With my 2nd m/c, I refused to take the progesterone because I was stubborn and honestly thought it wouldn't happen again. Another issue what that if I was going to lose this baby, I wanted it to happen earlier rather than later because I don't think I could handle that again. It was stupid thinking on my part because the doc told me it would happen and it did.
I think that hormone levels are very easy to manage once you understand them. I wouldn't be afraid to try again. As mentioned above, all things happen for a reason.
I m/c in January(6wks)and my doc told me to keep trying. He put me on Clomid because I have a few other issues to deal with and he thought this would help. But the minute I get a pos. HPT, I'm going on Progesterone and staying on it until my 4th month. I felt devastated too, but thinking about getting pg this month really has helped my attitude. I mean, I'm not as depressed as I think I would be if I held off another month.
Also, I know a couple that m/c at 8 weeks (Sept 14) and found out they were pg in October. That was over a year ago and now they have a healthy little boy. I couldn't believe that she got pg again right away, but things worked out.
Definately take some time to grieve over your loss and talk talk talk to DH about how you feel. Men don't go through the emotional part like we do and it's important that he can understand how difficult this was for you. Take Care! Good luck! -J
I am so sorry, honey. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif"> I wish I could understand why this happens. I also went through a m/c at 5 1/2 weeks and was told only that my progesterone was too low to sustain the pregnancy. I have never cried so long or so hard. It is a heartbreak that you will always carry.
I am now ttc with my husband and it isn't happening for me. I have no known problems, other than possibly my age being a factor. I am using a natural progesterone cream right now and I am hoping that will help me not only get pg, but stay pg. I totally understand your fears...please ask your doctor your questions. I do believe that one miscarriage isn't necessarily indicative of future miscarriages. For some, it is, sadly. For others it was just a fluke.
Please try to keep your chin up...it is sad...and it is hard. But talk to your doctor and please, try again. Take care of you right now. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/angel.gif">
I'm so sorry to hear of your m/c.
My first pregnancy ended in early m/c at 5 1/2 weeks. It happens more often than people realize, and it DEFINITELY doesn't mean it will happen again.
The only way for me to deal with my m/c was to turn it into a feeling of hope. I was on a waiting list for a fertility clinic when I first learned I was pregnant, and even though I miscarried it meant that we COULD get pregnant on our own. It just wasn't meant to be at the particular time.
Please don't let this situation discourage you.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
My thoughts are with you at this sad time.
It is more common than people think.
I have never suffered a miscarriage myself,I guess I must have been lucky eith my first child as I had only just found out that I was pregnant and I was going to see my partner at work and I stepped of the bus that I was on and as I stepped off, a bike was coming down the hill on an inside lane and knocked me flying in the air.I landed quite a way in front of the bus and went crashing down on the road.
The doctor said that he thought I would lose the baby.
I was black and blue but I never lost my baby.My baby must have been very strong.What I am saying is that they say things happen for a reason and that reason may be that your baby could have had something wrong with it.
This still doesn't help with the pain.
My mum had a miscarriage at 5 months on,she said it was absolutely the worst thing she has ever had happened to her.She had me and my twin sister 6 years later.My sister also suffered from a miscarriage and she was about 5 weeks pregnant.
She has since found out that she has polycystic ovaries.Which is probably why she miscarried and that is one of the things that can happen when you have this condition.
I really do hope things look up for you.
It doesn't mean that because you have had a miscarriage that you are definitely going to have another one.
I really feel for you.
I am so sorry about your M/C. I know there's nothing anyone can say or do that will make you feel better. Only time will heal. I haven't been through it, but if it happens to me this is the first place I'll come for support. The words of wisdom on this board are wonderful. I hope you keep trying. I know about five women who have had one or more M/C and they all went on to have healthy pregnancies. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/heart.gif">
I would really like to thank everybody for their support and understanding. It's very comforting to come here and read all these messages and all of sudden the days seems better.
Thank you everyone....thank you sooooo much

I guess i'm doing better. But sometimes i just can't stop thinking about it and then i don't feel like doing anything and i become really depressed. I know i'm not making it easy for my hubby, but i just don't know what to do. How long does it take....i mean i just feel so empty...so not special anymore. Maybe God has a plan for us...but God must really not like me to do this to me.... <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif">
Hey sweet Aloo God does not allow this to happen to punish you! It is very possible that something was wrong with the baby and He would rather hold your child then have them suffer!! Just picture your sweet little one in His arms and one day you will get to hold your child too!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">
I am sure it is still tough right now for you. How is your hubby handling? You two should try to grieve together if possible and this can and will bring you closer and stronger. Just don't lose your hope in a family!!
For everything that happens and God allows there is a reason and He does promise to give us back what we have lost and then some!!
