    Default D&C follow up app't was today (ttc & test results ment)

    I saw my OB this morning and he said everything looks just fine. I'm healed and DH and I can start trying again as soon as I get my next period. I'll be calling our RE today to set up our consult app't.

    He also had the genetic test results. Seems my baby boy (!) had down's syndrome-- an extra #21 chromosome. The report also stated that this is undoubtedly the reason for the mc. My OB said that in light of this, my body did exactly what it was supposed to do. Because we had planned to have an amnio, it appears that what would have been a very difficult decision was made for us-- if that makes any sense.

    While it made me very sad to hear all of this, it also filled me with a sense of relief because now we know what happened.

    That is great news about trying again right away and about knowing exactly what happened to the baby. That is what I and my Dr. are suspicious of for our LO too. I totally understand - we were going for the amnio also and I wonder if this m/c happened in part so we weren't forced to make a decision.

    I asked the Dr. why there are so many babies born with Down's, some of which seem very healthy. She said that they are the exception to the rule. I had no idea that most didn't make it.

    How far along were you?

    I'm glad to hear you got some closure. Also, thank you for sharing the information. I also didn't know that. It's funny, but one of the things we all seem to hate hearing is "maybe something was wrong with the baby" when in many cases, it's likely true. It doesn't necessarily make us feel better, but it's probably a relief to know. I'm glad you got the answers you needed.

    I'm glad you got the answers -- I never got definitive answers for our losses, so I can only imagine what it would be like. I'm guessing it makes it easier to 'find closure' on this chapter in our lives, and I'm really happy for you, for that.

    Best of luck with TTC -- I hope you get pregnant again 'tomorrow'!!!

    Hugs,
    Nicole

    I am sorry to hear that there were chromosomal abnormalities. However, I am grateful that you were able to get answers. Not knowing can be so frustrating.

    I hope that your appt with the RE goes spectacularly.
