I got pregnant the first time at age 40.5 and had a miscarriage early, approximately 6 1/2 -7 weeks. Had a D&C. Got pregnant the second time just two months after turing 41. Had another miscarriage and D&C. My chromosomes were tested with the last pregnancy. I had an extra chromosome 18, total of 47 chromosomes.
The doctor says I have no problem getting pregnant (both were natural), just keeping the pregnancy or having a viable pregnancy. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice as to what I can do to help keep a pregnancy? Fertility doesn't seem to be the problem, maybe my eggs are just too old, but I don't want to go the donor egg route. My doctor said something about taking baby aspirin to remove blood clotting if there is any and also mentioned suppositories. Not sure what that is, haven't discussed it enough.
Thanks to all for any advice or suggestions.
