My Three Miscarriages
Date: Thu, 11 Mar 1999
Hi! My name is Amy. My husband and I just had our third miscarriage. We found out on feb.19th, 1999 we were finally pregnant again after going through months and months of fertility tests. For me to get pregnant I had to take fertility pills and shots. After they were completed I had to go in for an IUI. We went home and waited the long 17 days to take a pregnancy test. That day finally came and we were very happy to find out we were pregnant again. (We lost our first baby in dec.1995 and our second on in jan1997) When I found out I was scared to death only thinking what had happened the last two times. Everyone said don't worry everything will be fine this time. Holding on to hope we told everyone that we were finally pregnant again. On feb25th I started spotting again, I went to the ER and the doctor did an exam, I asked her how do I know if I'm just spotting or if I was losing yet another child. She did a HCG level and it had gone up. I tried to hold on to hope that it was just spotting. She told me to come back for another HCG level on sat Feb. 27th.
We went home and about 3 hrs. later I had stopped bleeding, we so relieved, we thought we had just spotted and everything was going to be fine. Sat. finally came and we went back to the ER for another HCG level only to find out the level had gone down. Not wanting to believe it was happening again to us I went home and called my fertility doctor to tell her what had happened she said to come in Monday and have another hcg level taken. Monday morning I woke up early to get there right away anxious to find out what was going on. Had my blood drawn and they sent me home and said to call back in about four hours for the results. That was the longest four hours of my life. We went home and called back in four hours only to find out it had happened again. I contacted my doctor and asked her why this keeps happening to us. She has no idea why, we have had all the fertility testing and everything is fine. We really want to have a family but now I'm even more scared to try again. I feel for all of you who have to go through this. I will keep you in my prayers.
