  • You do now that it may not have anything to do with you or your body?? It could be the seed, not the egg. Have patience, dont try too hard, let go and let nature take care of it.

  • The thing that comes to my mind is a blood disorder such as Factor V or MTHFR. I have a form of MTHFR and I was told by my high risk specialist that most women who have it are diagnosed after multiple stillbirths. Most men are diagnosed at autopsy. I was incredibly fortunate to find out I had it after only one early miscarriage. Whatever it is, I wish you luck.

  • Look up Brewer diet. He did a study on pregnant women and how their diet may have effects on their pregnancy n baby. I was shocked at the results of his study.

  • First off, I am So sorry for your loses. People are sometimes nervous about talking to a mother who has had miscarriages & stillbirths, I will keep you and your SO in prayer.

    No advice to give, just support. My neices cannot carry boys. Every time they do the lose them very early 3rd trimester or late 2nd.

  • My only advice is to talk to your doctor about it. Maybe he/she can refer you to a specialist of some sort. Seems like a question only a doctor can find the definitive answer to in the end. I am terribly sorry for your losses. I hope you can get the help you need so you never have to go through that again.

  • Retired Neonatal ICU nurse here:
    Let me start by saying I am so sorry for your losses.
    I had a miscarriage btwn my 2 DSs. Miscarriages are actually more common than most ppl realize. My mom had 1, my aunt had 1, my older sis had 1. It is actually theorized that every woman has at least 1 but many happen so early that they don't even know that they are pg yet.
    It may not be poss to definitely tell why you are having all these losses, but you can discuss it w/ your doc & may need a referral to a specialist. There is the Factor V or MTHFR already mentioned, also PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) & poss dozens others that might be the prob. (I would hazard that your uterus is normal since you did carry 1 to term, but if you had not, that would be a poss, too.)
    Try not to worry--that won't help your situation & might have a neg effect--many have trouble getting pg when stressed or worried.

  • Thanks everyone!!! It's good to know that there is some people that really cares when you need some good advice.. The only thing i know is I do have RH - blood and i don't think that could 've been the problem, but there is a chance it could tho, if i had a misscarriage and never knew i guess. I know the Dr advice me to wait three months to try agian ,but that seems forever.. The doctor also is going to do Thyroid testing just to rule it out.. Thanks to all...

  • Hugs to you. Miscarriages are so difficult to deal with, aren't they.

    According to my OB, 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. It's a shocking statistic that I didn't know about until I had one at 12 weeks...
