3 miscarriages preg the fourth time and scared
by: Chrystie

Hi Congratulations on your new pregnancy. I on my 5th pregnancy with 1 healthy birth to show for it. I understand your fear of losing another but please try not to worry too much. I would suggest that you ask your doctor to do some blood work to make sure you are in the clear if not perhaps your doctor will put you on the meds again to make sure you don't have any clots or etc. I am on daily injections of 4500mul Tinzaparine also to make sure I am in the clear. My issue with this pregnancy is that I have log hcg and progesterone which scares me to death but I am holding on to faith.

Good luck my dear and all the best.

Hi Charlie It could be your progesterone is dropping, this causes many miscarriages. Although you say you have nothing wrong, they never check progesterone levels prior to the miscarriage, only after it. This doesn't prove anything. It's vital for Pregnancy. Please look through this page as it will give you an understanding of the role progesterone plays. And I doubt your vitamin D levels are normal, the NHS adequate level is far too low at 50nmol/L. 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. 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 info on levels, testing etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth, Birmingham Hospital and Vitamin D Links websites. But Birmingham Hospital follows the NHS standard and is also far too low. Living in the UK you don't get enough sun therefore insufficient vitamin D. It's essential for everyone living there to take supplements daily. Vitamin D is also essential for conception, a successful pregnancy and vital for the growing foetus, see here, here, here, here and here. These are excellent videos to watch too, see here and here. A lack can be involved in miscarriages, see here, here and here. Take care Wray
