Hello Tye,
So sorry for your loss.

We have been discussing this question on the thread titled:
Late Miscarriage - What tests did you have?

I lost my baby girl in May and was told the same - no post mortem because it doesn't show anything . I had genetic tests on the baby and got the results back 6 weeks later. I'm sure you should have had results by now.

I have learnt that you cannot expect the Doctors to come up with the answers, you have to push them. I went to see my GP twice and a consultant for my follow up appointment, they were all very sympathetic but nobody did anything. I have now requested another appointment with an obstetrician and I have also had some blood tests done (by my back pain doctor - comepletely unrelated but he is the only person that has actually done anything) and now I am waiting for those results.Your GP shoudl be able to order these for you, but mine seemed pretty clueless.

I was also advised by other ladies on Mumsnet to read Dr Lesley Regan's book 'Miscarriage: What every woman needs to know', which you can get on Amazon, and that gives you all the information about which tests are and are not useful.

I just wanted to make sure that I had ruled out any possible problems before I got pregnant again - OK, maybe it was just bad luck, and next time it will be fine, but what if it isn't? 9 months is a long time to be panicking in my opinion.

Sorry this is such a long post, I hope it's helpful. Best of luck and big hugs.
