So, after I got the test results on our baby girl, I was curious as to why a m/c would happen in a pg with a healthy embryo and I got some confusing info.


It stated that a lot of times when chromosomal tests are done after a D & C, it can be misleading....mostly if the embryo was female. During a D & C, sometimes the mother's endometrial lining can get mixed up with the embryonic/placental tissue, so when the tissue is tested, they might actually be looking at the mother's chromosomes and not the baby's.....therefore making it SEEM like the baby's chromosomes are normal (this wouldn't happen with a boy though because they

Danielle,


I also lost a chromosomally normal baby. When I asked the OB, she said there were lots of reasons----some include: there being something wrong with the baby that's not due to a number of chromosomes, like a syndrome, implantation issues, an infection or an issue with my cervix (I was pretty far along, thus the cervix piece). She didn't mention any issues with the sample or think it was odd that the baby's chromosomes were ok. She said we just often don't know what happens.


I'm sorry for your loss.

Oh man, I hadnt even thought of that. Figures, it does makes sense though.
I cant see how they could perfectly separate the mother's tissue from the embryo

Hi Teresa,


Hmmmm......I wonder if the testing your doctor will do is actually on you and your dh....not your baby's tissue (since there wasn't any). There are chromosomal/genetic factors that come into play with the parents too, that can effect the outcome of a pg.


I hadn't heard of the x-factor in men. I suppose that's something else to Google!!


I don't know......I'm just gonna assume that they did the testing correctly. There's really nothing I can do if it really was chromosomal anyway.....so I'm just not going to stress over it. All we can do is do some b/w to see if there's any other factors with me and go from there. It's in God's hands anyway.........................


I'm really wishing and
