Re: clomid question

The doctor decided to try me on Letrozole after our chemical pregnancy (had stillborn, MMC, then chemical). I am now 22 weeks with twin boys after just 2 cycles on the Letrozole. (He also had me on progesterone for the first tri.)

Re: What a natural miscarriage is like

Apparently I have very fast labors. My natural MC was about an hour of pain (close to labor). As soon as I passed the section that we think contained the baby I felt fine. The labor with my daughter was about 2 hours (from 2cm to delivery) and only the last 2 hours were painful. The doctor didn't wa...

Re: followup needed for pregnant women with thyroid antibodi

I've just been told I had high T3 and T4 after my latest miscarriage. TSH was within "normal" range (not sure what it was). I'm going to the Endo on Tuesday, so should know more after that.

Re: WHY????????

I was also told I was gaining too much weight (5lbs in a month) when I was blown up with swelling. I told the MW to look at me and see where the weight was coming from. I did some things to rid the excess water and "lost" 3 lbs before my next monthly visit. I think sometimes they forget that water w...

Two Angels Now

We lost our second baby as he stopped growing at 6 weeks. :( We didn't find out until nearly 9 weeks and I started bleeding that night. I asked the doctor to do thyroid levels and turns out T3 and T4 were high, so he's referred me to an Endo. We're hoping to get pregnant again soon and go to term (o...

Re: What specific tests?

I would ask for thyroid too as I just found out that may be my problem after the death of our second.

Re: Did you get more than one opinion before TTC again?

I saw two different MFM (one was after I was pregnant, but supposed to be preconception- they're soonest appt was 8 weeks out). They had 2 totally different opinions. One thought I wouldn't be high risk at all and the other was pretty sure there was some sort of problem that caused Taylor's death. W...

Re: Preeclampsia and hypothyroidism

I just found out I may be hyperthyroid after my second loss. I have to go to the endo to be evaluated (and treated). We're still planning to go ahead with conceiving for now. I only looked up hyper, but it did say it could cause pre-e (as well as fetal death and miscarriage :(- why don't they test t...

Re: spilling protein

I lost my daughter with only trace protein and pressures just starting to get to 140/90, so I would insist that they monitor me more closely if it was getting close to that. (I would probably tell them to admit me to the hospital for constant monitoring, but we've now lost both of our pregnancies at...

Hyperthyroid?

Has anyone else been told they are hyperthyroid? I asked the OB to do thyroid levels last week and they came back as hyper. He's referred me to the endo. I've read it can cause high BP with protein (basically pre-eclampsia) as well as fetal death and MC (which I had all). We go to the endo in 2 week...
