TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

Question about fertility "testing"

Posted by on Oct. 5, 2012 at 1:44 PM

Some background: first 2 pregnancies conceived easily, normal pregnancies, delivered term, healthy big babies that are now 2 & 5

Next 2 pregnancies no trouble conceiving, lost the first baby at 14 weeks 4-6-12 had abnormal blood work showing a "insufficient" placenta, pregnant again in July, lost that baby 9-28-12 at 13 weeks, u/s on 9/26 showed a tumor on placenta thought to be a chorioangioma.

At my f/u today doctor suggested that I see a fertility specialist before we TTC again. He wants to check my clotting and maybe put me on baby aspirin or lovenox and then when I do get pregnant check progesterone or just put me on it anyway and check to make sure it's adequate.

Does anyone have any advice, personal experience, information to help guide me or know what to ask the fertility doctor when we get to that point in our journey.

Thanks everyone in advance :)

Thanks, we obviously aren't trying anytime soon but he gave me some hope today and I think that is better to focus on. I will have to start researching and writing questions down

i haven't had a loss like that - but i've had infertility problems that required lots of testing. I wish you the best of luck.
