Miscarriage Number Five

Second beta today was 33 (down from 110 two days ago). So that's that. I'm actually very grateful that since it had to happen, it happened relatively swiftly. I really don't want a D&C ever again.

Oh, here's a pic of my pee stick progression. It seems like they got darker, but you can see they peaked and started getting lighter. Also, the darkest they ever got was still lighter than the control line.

Funny how at 3 miscarriages I was still getting lukewarm responses from various medical professionals. Now at 5, I'm like a golden goose. Everybody wants to get in on the action! My family doctor sent me for betas and made calls to specialists. The fertility clinic I was going to in September moved me up to July 31st. The early pregnancy loss clinic at the hospital called today and interviewed me for an hour about all six pregnancies. They're going to see me next week for an ultrasound and consult.

Good. About bloody time.

I would like some people to do their jobs and help me out with this. I've been doing some Dr. Google reading and I think there are several issues that need to be investigated and treated which no one has paid any attention to.

For example, can we get my ovulation closer to CD 14? Maybe then my lining will be the proper thickness for proper implantation. Also, can we check for auto-immune issues? How about some additional hormone support for the early weeks. I believe HCG shots are often coupled with progesterone suppositories. I dunno, all of this is just running through my mind without scientific backup. But I'm not the doctor, they are. Why is it so hard to get them to pay attention?

  1. Lots and lots of bloodwork. Good luck and I'm hoping for something solvable and obvious. I am quite superstitious about my vit D. I never had a diagnoses other than being old. I am sorry for your loss and I am hopeful there are going to be more answers ahead.
