I got the results from my blood clotting tests. She said my dr is out until Monday but she had another RE look it over and all the tests were negative. She says she will have my dr look it over and she will get back to me with numbers. Donno what those are for but I guess ill find out.
I also found out I'm O+ blood type.

I don't know what else too do. I want answers so I know why I have had 4 losses! I'm 26 and healthy I just want a baby.

So ultimately, all tests being negative, and o+ blood, should mean that there is no reason for the losses? That sounds very frustrating :(

That does sound frustrating. Ugh. Hope you are able to find something out soon. (hugs)

Yea, :( I mean it's good because it mean I should be able to have one. But I just want to know what is going wrong. :( I don't want to keep blindly hoping and going through losses.

 What about hormones? I've found out that I do have a blood disorder, that my body doesn't produce enough progesterone and that I have an incompetent cervix. Still hurts, and it doesn't make loosing my babies any easier, but I feel that I know what is wrong and how to try and prevent. (It doesn't change chromosome abnormalities though. My last loss was due to that). If your blood work and blood type aren't the cause it might be due to progesterone levels. Additionally, my fertilitiy doc did a dye test on my female parts to make sure that my uterus was properly shaped. It was, but he told that there are basically three shapes and that some of them result in miscarriage and some result in later pregnancy losses. Just suggesting. I know it  tough to loss them and not know why. My heart goes out to you.

Having a baby and continuing the fight is worth it.  So as far as the test results, these are 4 random miscarriages?  I know it hurts so much to be going through this, but I know you are incredibly strong.  How many doctors have you been to?

(((hugs))) My losses have thus far been chalked up to "a case of bad luck". I've had 6 losses (first 3 before 6wks, 10w3d, 8w6d and 17w5d-this one was caused by an "unknown infection"). All of the testing has come back fine and since I already have 4 daughters they feel it "unnecessary" to do some of the testing (genetic testing between DH and myself).  At least if there was some reason behind them maybe I'd feel better about things, but I just can NOT accept "a stroke of bad luck" as an answer =0(

They've already tested for all that and it's all been normal too. :/

Wow I'm so sorry :( I hate the bad luck answer too! I hope we both get real answers soon.

 what about chromosome testing on both you are DH.  If you haven't had it done (or even if you have already)I recommend getting it done (or read) by a genetic conselor.  My fiance has a balanced translocation and neither my OB, fertility specialist, or the mother fetal medicine doc really understand what the translocation truly can mean, they just assumed since fiance is ok then it shouldn't be that dangerous.  Just throwing ideas out there.  Having an answer made my outlook on things a little easier.  Hugs and I hope you get a rainbow soon.
