I wanted to thank everyone who has been keeping up with me and commenting. I have been a little quiet the past few days due to work and family stuff that is going on. Funny how life doesn't stop even when I feel that there is little reason for my world to keep spinning.
I also wanted to address the testing issue that many commented on. After our third loss, we did have all of the basic testing done; Day 3 FSH, endometrial biopsy, HSG, and a basic blood panel checking for anticoagulation issues, lupus, etc., and my husband had a sperm analysis. All of those tests came back "normal," and since our losses were all of the very early nature, our doctor really felt that it was just a case of bad luck.
Then, we had our fourth and then fifth loss. I had a D&C for that 11 week miscarriage and no tissue was available for successful testing. My husband and I both had a full chromosomal analysis. Again, all was normal.
Basically, everyone (and by everyone, I mean all of the OBs and RE that I have seen) seems to think that we have just had really bad luck. I have been encouraged to repeatedly get pregnant because the odds are very much on our side that eventually, we will get a healthy baby. Thus, we keep trying.
Another goal is to keep getting pregnant because if we don't get our healthy baby, we will get far enough along to do a D&C, this time in time for chromosomal testing. What my RE wants to determine from that is whether my body is killing healthy babies or if we are just having a higher amount that usual of chromosomally abnormal embryos, thus we could then consider IVF with PGD. Yes, I sometimes get frustrated. It seems sad to create a baby for the purpose of finding out why it died. But I can reconcile myself with that if it's the only way to discover our problem.
I got one set of blood work back today and all looks normal. This is frustrating. But I keep trying in the hopes that one day, we'll get lucky.
Can't believe it's cycle day 7.
