Hey everyone, my name is Helen. My partner and I have been trying for a year now. I have had 3 m/c now but 2 others before last year so 5 in total. I seem to carry upto a certain point. Nothing has happened for the past

I am sorry for your losses. You should check out the TTC after Miscarriage board if you haven't already. I had my first loss in July 2010 and we are getting the green light to try again next cycle. I am also waiting for my first earth baby and it is so hard to go through loss and the long waiting. We have been trying since 2006.

How far along do you usually get in pregnancy? Have they done any testing on the babies? I had an ectopic so I didn't have any testing to see why I miscarried.

Hugs...

I get early pregnancy m/c. 8-9 weeks. I suffer from a lot of stress due to my job and things with family haven't been to great this past year. People passing over and other things. I have high blood pressure and hormones don't rise fast enough but the doctors are refusing to help at the moment until home life calms down. We did give up while things calmed down then started again. But then really we have been trying this whole year as i haven't been on any

No I haven't seen a specialist as such. My last m/c I was sent for scans and other tests by doctors as a routine because its happened before. I had all the test that I had come back clear so doctors have said there's nothing wrong but I keep saying to my doctor I want to see a specialist but they keep ignoring me. Need to change my doctor as I have had enough and want to know more because scans are not enough and blood tests are not enough. I had a cervix scrape and that was clear so there's nothing wrong there. I just want answers and proper ones at that. I just think I have had enough and I don't want to go through it anymore because everytime I do conceive I loose it and it hurts more and more. I just have my fingers crossed every month. That's all I can do, just don't get my hopes up too much.
