Hi all I have been on the boards for almost 4 years and once again we have been hit by another miscarriage from my loss on the October board has ended and my DH and I are still shocked by it. We went out to Eat for Brunch for Valentine's Day at Applebees and then went to Target and went back home. After being home for almost two hours we went to the base tailors and the Commissary and to Best Buy because the Exchange didnt have any cases I wanted. So afterwards my husband wanted to drive out to the Walmart in Poulsbo. I had to pee when I got there ( and peed twice while there) I started noticing brown spots and pain down there so Wayne took me to the Naval Hospital ER and I dont think they even took me serious because all they did was an Urine test for an UTI and sent me home with Tyenol.
Well when I got up Monday morning to pee to find that I have a lot more red spotting then last night and pretty bad cramps.I feel I like my Journey has ended and once again its on a Holiday. I found out I lost my first the day after my 26th Birthday, my second the day of/ day after 4th of July and this one looks like the day of/ day after Valentines Day
I dont why it keeps happening to me but all I know is that I have hormone problems to begin with for all 3 pregnancys. I was getting pregnant when I was only bleeding for three days
At 2 PM on Monday after the UPS truck showed up with all the baby gear that we had prchased with the tax refund check (that was a major slap in the face) we headed to the ER we got there around 220 got Triage and waited in the ER waiting room for 2 hours while I was actively bleeding and cramping and threw up a couple of times I finally got seened. They gave me some fluids, some pain/nausea/ itching meds they did a Pelvic Exam and an external U/S pretty much when I was seen on the 9th that I was actually 6 weeeks and 2 days and not the 4 weeks they said I was. My new U/S showed that there was no baby or sac and that was indeed a M/C. My quantitive was only 35 and it was 203 on the 9th
It pains me and my hubby to be in this position again for the third time but we know it wasnt meant to be. Emotionally I feel absolutely drained as this was something I wasnt expecting or ever wanting to happen again but yet again I find myself grieving for something that wasnt meant to be.
I see my OB on Thursday the 18th and I want answers as this has gone on long enough or can I take a 4th Miscarriage in a row. Pretty much since I have had three I can ask to see the Fertility specialist over at Madigan but that becomes the problem since I dont drive and my husband is deploying again. I am gonna ask if I can see someone in the area of Silverdale where I live so I can make these appointments and do this while he is gone. I pretty much think I have an hormonal issue and even to get a progesterone supplement it requires a Madigan appointment. I really hate how the Military works. Pretty much we are going to ask them on Thursday if we can try once again when he comes back in mid to late July because we cant wait another 4 years that we had waited to get pregnant from Hormonal Issues with me, my PE and a few other health complications that I have had to endured
Does the pain ever go away?

I am so sorry for your loss. I do not think the pain ever goes away, but it does get better.
Can they do some blood test and genetic testing there? Maybe it can give you something to go on until you can see a specialist.
I am doing well. I was able to see my OB that I had started seening and it looks like we are on the same page as why it keeps happening. Pretty much they believe in their heart as well as mine that I have a problem with ovulating normally like with 100% that I need it be more like the 50% or so of needed hormones. While my Hubby is deployed we are going to get my cycles back to Normal with Metformin and or Clomid to see if I am ovulating normally with good labs and stuff. If that is achieved I do not have to go to Madigan to see the Fertility Specialist which is a blessing since its a hour away from where I live each way. If not I will have to see them.
The OB/GYN think my problem is hormones thats why I have a hard time staying pregnant (I could have told them that) and not bad genes. When we get the ball rolling again I will be taking a Progestorone supplement as well as Baby Aspirin when we start trying and whatever the drug of choice he gives me. When Pregnancy is achieve successfully then I get to back to Lovenox. They are pretty sure I have Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) with Anovulation ( failure to release an oocyte)
I feel at Peace with everything and I am so glad the appointment went well.
I have tested (+) and also (-) a few times for APA. I hear to comes and goes like that.
I used Lovenox with Alex and besides being a big boy, all went well. Word of advice, the stomach is the least painful area for the injections. FXed.
I will have to ask. I have been pretty much tested for tons of blood disorders and all auto immune disorders and they have all been coming back Negative. I only take Lovenox has preventive measures while Pregnant since they cant find the reason why I had a Pulmonary Embolism (PE) back on Halloween of 2008. I took the Lovenox for this past pregnancy and I really love the stomach has my injection site my legs man did they hurt. I am waiting on my first period so he can test my hormones at the point of bleeding/ spotting for more info at the time I start bleeding.
