Thanks ladies so much for your support. It helps to hear from people who understand when their pregnancies don't go as planned.

I went to the doctor today and had an ultrasound which confirmed I am miscarrying. My husband and I had blood drawn today for chromosomal defects and we are going to repeat the blood clotting panel that was done last year. Last year, everything turned back normal except I was heterozygous for MTHFR which shouldn't cause miscarriages. We'll also do an evaluation of my uterus next month. I am feeling better because we have a plan of action and I feel my doctor is on top of things.

My husband and I were joking that our DS, Noah must have turned the switch to "off" in my uterus on his way out two years ago to ensure he would never have to share his toys with anyone [:)]. Having him as helped get through this- he is more of a miracle each day.

Thank you everyone so much for your support. I will be joining all of you who are TTC shortly!

Bridget,
I am glad to see they are testing to find what is wrong. At least then you'll know what you're dealing with and hopefully how to treat it. I pray they find it quickly and its workable :o)

I am glad that your doctor is on top of things and that you have a plan of action. I really hope and pray that they find out the cause.

Enjoy Noah and tell him to enjoy his toys [:)]

I too have a son and have had a m/c and the loss of my daughter since him, it has so helped being able to hold on to him.

Bridget,
I, too, am so sorry to hear of your loss. On the flip side, it is good to know that the doctors are actively trying to discover the cause. Hopefully you will get some answers soon and be on your way to having a little one for Noah to share his toys with. Lots of hugs and prayers coming your way from Texas.
