Pregnant after 2 late MMCs - Treatment


#1

Hi there, new to posting - I’ve lurked these forums for a year now though :slight_smile:
My story: I have a 4, almost 5 year old - unplanned and uncomplicated, born in 2008.
I had a missed miscarriage at 17 wks (baby passed at 14 wks) in March 2012, and a second missed miscarriage at 11 wks (baby measured 11 wks) in August 2012.
I took cytotec both times to pass the ‘babies’.
My husband (father to child born 2008) and I seeked treatment, my doctor thinks that it’s just “bad luck” - I’d say pretty catastrophic luck but whatever… Did tests for thyroid, diabetes, blood clotting… All normal.

We are pregnant again and he put me on 5mg folic acid daily, prometrium (progesterone, 100mg x2 daily in the vagina) and a daily baby aspirin… All as a “just in case”…

Any body have success after multiple missed miscarriages so late in the 1st trimester? Any success with the treatments I mentioned? Needless to say I am terrified and preparing myself for another MMC.

Thanks in advance for any reply,
Dana
