Finally we have our follow-up! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ

A long 5 months since we started our last cycle, we finally have our follow up with the consultant on Wednesday!! I was so impatient to have everything happen sooner, but I finally have my head together again after our early MC, so I think itโ€™s better this way. I can go in level-headed and figure out our next steps. I wonder if theyโ€™ll do any extra tests given our 2 x CP... Any advice on questions to ask would be much appreciated xx

Good luck with your follow up. Sorry to ask this direct question but how early did you Mc? I'm lucky enough to have had a bfp but then paranoid about it succeeding! Good luck with everything xx

Hi Kathy, congratulations on your BFP!!! Thatโ€™s wonderful news ๐Ÿค— The first time I tested positive 4 days before OTD, but started bleeding & was negative by OTD. So I guess that was around 4 weeks counting back to my last period. Second time I was 6 weeks (again counting back to my last period)... I kept testing positive for another 2 weeks after the MC though (painful cramping) as it takes a while for HCG to drop. I think in all honesty that the first 7 weeks are where the MC risk is highest, then it drops significantly after you have seen a heartbeat. I also think it is fully outside of our control... I think it comes down to embryo quality & there is only so much they can tell in a lab. Sorry for the rambling post... if you can, try not to worry, as the majority of pregnancies go on without issue. Wishing you absolutely every bit of luck for a healthy full term pregnancy xx

First of all so sorry to hear of your losses- had a chemical pregnancy last year and itโ€™s truly devastating ๐Ÿ’”

As you had 2 , I wonder if you can be refered to a miscarriage clinic for tests? I know each CCG has their own criteria, so you might need to check yours.

Have you had a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy? A laparoscopy can check and treat endometriosis which may not always present symptoms, endometriosis can only be diagnosed by laparoscopy currently. A hysteroscopy can look closer inside your uterus- might be abke to see if there are any structural issues causing mc. You can have both these done together- I had both done on Friday- I have endometriosis and it returned after my mc.

Hopefully the other ladies will be able to advise more on mc investigations.

Good luck with your appointment xoxo
