Hello I'm Cheri (26) my SO is Dave (38 ) We have had three losses.
Our first was our son Devin Thomas who was born 4-26-02 at 17w5d due to PROM and infection. Our second loss was 4-21-07 at 6 weeks my HCG levels just never doubled then started falling.
I just recently had my third miscarraige (it started sunday and really started yesterday). I was 8 weeks 1 day as of sunday. The pregnancy was going so great or so I thought. Numbers were low but doubling wonderfully. Had some spotting that doctor said was due to a sensitive cervix. Then on sunday I started having red bleeding. Went to the ER was told my cervix was closed but was passing some clots. The bleeding stopped after around 2 hours and I was sent home on bed rest. I had a Drs appt on monday where I was told everything looked good but was told to 'wait and see' I had my u/s on tuesday where the tech found nothing in my uterus. I had my HCGs rechecked and they went down from 8,800 on sunday to 335 on thursday. Dr confirmed my miscarraige.
Since this was my third miscarraige the doctor is ordering a miscarriage panel. (blood work) I'm hoping they are going to refer me to a high risk specialist to find out why this is happening. Hopefully it is something easy to fix or something preventable. We are not planning on TTC until after the first of the year to give my body and mind time to heal. Hopefully by then we'll know why this is happening.
Has anyone else had this testing done? What should I expect? What should I ask? What needs to be done?
