4 miscarriages 1st one a molar pregnancy

by Kirsty
(Poole, Dorset, uk)

I'm currently on my fourth miscarriage. #1 a molar pregnancy that ended at 11 weeks, #2 miscarriage at 11 weeks saw baby and heartbeat 2 weeks before #3 and #4 both ended at 4 weeks 3 days.

I have an appointment in two days to see gp what tests can I ask for.
I have two children who are eleven and seven after my second I was diagnosed with an under active thyroid but that is under control. I know I have children but I desperately want more and it hurts every time.

What can I do now??

Hi Kirsty Early miscarriages are often due to low progesterone, you could consider using this. We have more info on our Pregnancy page. If you have an underactive thyroid it's quite possible you have a vitamin D deficiency, see here, here and here. Vitamin D is vital for a successful pregnancy too, see here, here, here, here and here. These are excellent videos to watch too, see here and here. Please consider having a test done. Birmingham Hospital now send out kits for £20, but please ignore their adequate level. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml or 175-250nmol/L and not the 30ng/ml or 75nmol/L most labs and doctors regard as adequate. In fact BH regard 50nmol/L as adequate, whereas specialists put this in the deficiency range. And the minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. For more excellent info, see Vitamin D Links, Vitamin D Council, and GrassrootsHealth websites. Take care Wray
