8 pregnancies...2 live births
(Ashland, NH USA)
I am 26 years old and have been pregnant 8 times (I am currently exactly 4 weeks pregnant and praying for the best) I have had 5 miscarriages, 1 full term birth and 1 premature baby at 31 weeks gestation. The history is as follows:
1. missed miscarriage: found at 11 weeks gestation (only developed until 4-5 weeks) D&C
2. Full term baby boy 5 pounds 11 oz. (had a low thyroid during the pregnancy took meds.)
3. miscarriage at 5 weeks.
4. (found out I was pregnant only 3 weeks after previous miscarriage) I developed Pre-eclampsia and severe HELLP Syndrome. Delivered baby girl at 31 weeks 5 days (2 pounds 6 oz) and found that she was born with Auto Immune Thrombocytopenia ( I built up an antibody to my husbands antigen on his blood platelets.)
5. miscarriage 4 weeks
6. miscarriage 4 weeks
7. miscarriage 4 weeks
8. currently 4 weeks pregnant. Tested positive 11 days past ovulation. HCG at 12 days past ovulation was 9.06. Doc wants to re-test in 1 week and then THINK about doing progesterone injections.
I am worried that I lose all of my miscarried babies by 5 weeks gestation and he wants to wait until I am 5 weeks to re-test and then make an appointment for progesterone injections. It may be too late by then. What do you think?
