Having spent the last couple of hours reading everyones different stories I find myself feeling desperately sad for some of you on here. As devastated as I am, to hear some of your stories has made me (this sounds terrible i know!) feel better.
Been trying for a year, both DH and I are 40. Fell pregnant in December but miscarried at 5 weeks. Then fell pregnant again 2nd cycle after mc. Again I have miscarried at 5 weeks.
Had a lot of blood tests and a couple of scans. Only discrepancy seems to be high TSH (12.9) but with normal, albeit low end T4 (12).
My acupuncturist spoke to me yesterday about Killer Cells. Live quite near Mr Shetata's clinic and I believe he is in an expert in recurrent miscarriage.
My question is...given i've "only" (feels like a lifetime!) been trying for a year and have fallen pregnant twice, could the miscarriages be bad luck or should I book a private appointment with an expert. NHS (and I work for them!!) aren't being particularly helpful. Seen yesterday whilst I am miscarrying and told to come back in 4 months. The Consultant isn't sure what to do and told me to have a break for a couple of months!
Or....is TSH a really big factor? I begged my GP to put me on Levothyroxine when I fell pregnant with the second but she reluctantly put me on such a small dose I don't think it would have made any difference yet.
Sorry for the long-winded ramble.....any advice really welcome!

2nd mc in 3 months. No dc and turning 41 in Sept. Bad luck or something sinister?
