Miscarriage- just don't understand

(20 Posts)

So it looks like I'm about to miscarry again. For the 3rd time. I just don't understand why it keeps happening to me. I've had two children already- with two miscarriages in between them- and now I woke up this morning at 6weeks bleeding. It tapered off pretty quickly but I've been having that weird prickly feeling in my uterus and I just know it's over. Why does this keep happening to me? I feel guilty even complaining as I know I'm lucky to have the two I have.

It just sucks and I feel so alone sad

So sorry to hear
If you haven’t already get yourself to the gp to get referred for tests - you can after 3 miscarriages. You might get some answers then?
Sometimes it’s just bad luck though. I was told I was ‘too fertile’ in that we conceived nearly every month we tried and embroyes stuck when they shouldn’t then miscarried later.
It’s a horrible time flowers

Thank you @Rainbow that's interesting you say that we to are incredible fertile- pregnant within one or two cycles every time. I wasn't sure we would get the tests as it's not three losses in a row- will be calling the midwife tomorrow to request a referral to the EPU- it's all just so much sad

Hi OP - we had x3 miscarriages also early ones. They never did work out what was wrong but this pregnancy has carried on to 28 weeks with the help of a lovely consultant, progesterone, aspirin and thyroid medication, all of which may or may not have helped. Please don't assume this is the end - can you be referred for an early scan? Are you still bleeding?

Please do get yourself referred now you have had three of them. Sometimes it's worth reminding yourself this is not your fault, sometimes it's just bad luck with egg or sperm quality and it's just happened consecutively by horrible bad luck. Don't be hard on yourself - they will work out what is going on and you'll get so much support going forward. Much love xxxxx

Hi do you have an early pregnancy unit you can go to for blood tests and scans?

I say this because at 6 weeks i had clotty bleeding and pain. I was told that was it.
I went for some early scans at the hospital after my blood levels still seemed high (6 weeks can be early to scan as they don't see much) but everything turned out to be fine in the end and I have no idea what it was all about.
Do you have a local hospital/ Maternity unit you can call or even contact your doctors to see if they can point you in the right direction?

I really do hope everything is okay

Good luck Sunshine. I hope it's good news. I have had a mc and I know how devastating it is flowers

MyEternalSunshine Tue 05-Dec-17 13:15:03

Thanks so much for all of your kind words- baby appears to be fine! Has a strong heartbeat and they saw no reason for the bleeding so just got to keep hoping things don't change! So hard to ever relax once you've been through mc's though isn't it! But atleast it's good news for now flowers

Great news, will keep everything crossed for you.

I just wanted to say that I also have two children, and after 1 chemical and 3 6-7 week miscarriages I'm now 17 weeks pregnant. It is so horrible suffering recurrant miscarriages but hopefully this is your sticky one smile

That's brilliant news, Sunshine - really, really happy for you!

Congratulations OP! You must be over the moon. Did they date the pregnancy for you? Bleeding is terrifying isn’t it - but not always a bad sign! X
