12 Miscarriages and starting to lose my faith!

by Casey
(Texas )

I have had 11-12 miscarriages, I'm starting to lose count now. The first few times just chalked it up to well, it happens...then as more and more came we saw specialists and we currently are working with two specialist both of which say they are not sure what it is other than possibly low progesterone. They checked and I am taking folic acid and thyroid meds because the tests show slightly abnormal but not really that significant. I get pregnant on my own all the flippin time it seems but it just won't stick and I miscarry between 6-7 weeks every single time like clock work.
I am extremely faithful but it sure would be nice to have a real answer to why this is happening. They have tested everything in the world & say that I really don't need a surrogate because if they can find out what is going on between this 6-7 week mark than I could carry it myself. My husband and I do not want to adopt and honestly it is because I work in a psychiatric emergency center and I worry about genetic issues. We are happy not haveing a baby but want want horribly. I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and really feel selfish asking for another blessing but I am asking.
We will continue to try until I can't do it emotionally any longer I guess and hopefully it will work.
This baby making is a lot harder than it seems but keep your heads up ladies! Stay faithful...that is true faith, knowing you can't control something & wanting it so badly & leaving it up to God to handle. Remember it's not our plan, it's his.

12 Miscarriages and starting to lose my faith!

Hi Casey I'm very puzzled. If your doctors have checked everything, and there are no chromosomal abnormalities, I don't understand why they haven't given you progesterone. Usually after three miscarriages it's given. We do have a page on Pregnancy, it explains how to use progesterone and how much. It's always best to start before conception. Please have a vitamin D test done, it's vial for a successful pregnancy, see here, here, here, here, here and here. These are excellent videos to watch too, see here and here. And a low level is implicated in miscarriages, see here, here and here. For more info on vitamin D levels, testing etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth, Birmingham Hospital and Vitamin D Links websites. 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. 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. Take care Wray
