So the tww begins for me. Ugh! I can't believe I have had 2 losses in a row. I went to the doc who did some bloodwork which all came back normal. She essentially told me it was most likely my old eggs.
Your doctor could be right of course, but I will say that when I went to the doctor after my 2 m/c in a row and told her I suspected hormones and wanted to be tested, she said it's nearly impossible to test for something like low progesterone because it rises and falls with your cycle so one snapshot wouldn't tell them much. So she just prescribed it...and it worked for me. POSSIBLE that that is it? I'm only bringing it up again because I found in my own research that it is SUCH a common cause of early repeat m/cs.
And no matter what, hugs of course. It is so hard to go through the waiting and wondering and disappointment over and over.
I started B6 and I am doing the natural progesterone cream once I am for sure I ovulated (so maybe tomorrow). My LP has only been 9-11 days so really short. Thanks for the hugs. I will tell you that if I do get pg and it sticks and as long as I stay healthy I am doing a homebirth. I meet with the midwife on May 17th.
I'm so sorry, Christa! I had a few very early miscarriages in between Tiven & Weston. I was still nursing Tiven twice a day most of that time & down to once a day at the end, but I was ovulating regularly & my hormone levels checked out fine. I, too, was diagnosed with old eggs. I asked if my extended nursing might be hindering things, and was told no; if nursing was to cause a problem, I was told, then the problem would be that I wouldn't ovulate. However, once Tiven weaned completely, I was pregnant with Weston in four months. And then I was in denial, LOL! I didn't test for days & days because so many times I got a BFP and then start bleeding later that day or the next day. So now, anyone over the age of 40 who is still nursing, I say if you're having trouble getting pregnant again, maybe consider weaning because that's what did the trick for me.
