Oh no! So very sorry for your loss. I've been keeping track of your progress and hoping for great news. If you don't mind me asking, did you miscarry on your own or did you take methotrexate? Are all your embies PGS tested? Makes no sense. I know Oregon Reproductive pushes for testing (I consulted with Dr Hesla 5 years ago) but sometimes I wonder if it compromises the integrity of the embryo/trophoblast. MIR (old poster on here) commented on this subject on several occasions. Didn't mention it to cast doubt, maybe to answer the question of "why?" At least you've proven you can produce normals which in my opinion is 90% of the battle. Keep the faith and remember, "this too shall pass!" Hugs!!

Yes, they are all pgs tested. No, I dont believe that the testing makes them more "fragile" - there is no evidence to support that. Normal embies have a 66% chance of a live birth - I fell in to the 33% chance where it didnt. We will be running blood clotting disorders panel to see if thats what the issue is - but I suspect not. I took misoprostil to bring on the m/c - it was horrid. All those reviews you read online about how horrible misoprostil is are 100% accurate - I chose that route as I didnt want a D and C as I have already had one and I also had a myomectomy, so I didnt want any further surgical intervention on my uterus. Now for recovery - as of this weekend (just prior to the m/c) my HCG was at 84 000.

Hun, I'm so sorry for your loss. HCG looked so promising. Who is doing your immune panel testing? Hopefully they can find some answers. Please don't lose hope, as Holly said, half the battle is finding normal embryos which we know you produce.

Im at a loss to understand why Anonymous feels it her duty to push women down the donor path. I honestly don't know wha business it is of anyone to push others down this path. It's a very personal decision and I will not choose that path until I am satisfied that I have canvassed every avenue to have my own egg child.

I honestly don't understand how someone with children has time to be involved in tearing down others.. Just ignore her hun.. We are here to provide support. Hopefully with these new forums posts like hers will be removed as they don't add any value.

I am truly very sorry for your loss. 😞

I am so very sorry for your loss. I had the same thing happen and it was devastating at the time. Take some time to yourself, rest, and then charge on. It helped me to have a plan in place for my next steps, although I had to take a rest period b/c I had methotrexate. I went on to have a healthy normal pregnancy, so please just ignore Anonymous. She is clearly mental and would only say those things if something is wrong with her. No one in their right mind would say the things she has said at this time--even if they truly believed donor eggs was the way to go. I do believe, however, that we as a group need to be careful in responding to her. I was particularly bothered by the response regarding donor eggs and raising someone else's children. There are numerous people who may consult this board who are considering or have chosen donor eggs and this is not a helpful response. Further, while I did not chose donor eggs myself, I seriously considered it, and I do not believe one with a donor egg child is raising someone else's child as noted above.

Sorry about the reference to "donor children". I've edited my post. I was going to say donor egg in a different sentence but then forgot to delete donor.. I was on my phone. Anyway, I have edited the post to just say "children" not "donor children".

My heart breaks for you. The loss of a pregnancy is one of the most difficult experiences that we could go through, and something that some of use don't fully get over. Ever.

Hi Baby4lulu,
I am so sorry to hear about that and the heartbreak. Since you have other PGS normal embryo's, I have faith that you will have a great chance of future success.

Best Wishes,
Sydney
