Has anyone gone on to have a successful pregnancy after 3 early recurrent pregnancy losses over 35 years of age? This has just been torture. My fertility doctor has done all of the testing and they cannot find anything wrong with us.View Thread
I am so angry because I asked my fertility doctor about progesterone after my 2nd loss. He seemed wishy washy about it. My 3rd pregnancy loss was a trisomy 16 so we know we could not have saved that one.
Well, we got pregnant for a 4th time recently and again my doctor did not suggest progesterone. I even emailed him the day I got pregnant telling him I want to do everything possible for this pregnancy. I went in for my 7 week ultrasound and we saw a healthy strong heartbeat and left the ultrasound thrilled. I then got my bloodwork results later that afternoon and found out all of my levels were low. I miscarried 3 days later. How is this possible? I am sooo angry they did not put me on progesterone right when I got pregnant. He tried putting me on it when we got my bloodwork back but obviously it was too late. Now my doctor is going to try it on my 5th pregnancy and now seems to be an advocate of it. I am just beside myself wondering why he would not have tried this on my 4th pregnancy. I am just sick about it. I am now 36 1/2 and have no children. The clock is just ticking away and they are just messing around with me each pregnancy. It is a miracle in itself each time I get pregnant and they just take it for granted that I will just get pregnant again. AHHHHHH!
Well, you give me hope that progesterone will work. I have heard this from so many other people too. I should have never listened to my doctor. I just hate this miserable waiting game to be able to try again and to see if I get pregnant each month.View Thread
Thank you so much for your post. Your success is very encouraging to me. I don't have anyone that I know that has been through what I am going through which make it very isolating. All of my friends & family get pregnant easily which is very frustrating. I also think I am frustrated because I have been the most healthy my whole life out of everyone. I guess that does not matter. I pray our next pregnancy is a success just like you and your neighbor.
It was funny you related good eggs to the lottery, that is the only analogy that I can think of too. I relate it to black jack though, sometimes you have a good streak and sometimes you have a bad streak but you are bound to have a good one at some point. I hope!!!!View Thread
