actually, it can help some people in cases of recurring m/c. in *some* people they can have a mild undiagnosed clotting issue* which can increase your chances of m/c and the most common treatment is extra folic acid and simply taking a baby aspirin every day. its is caused by a mutation in the MTHFR gene. i was asking since i do not know if kara has had any testing to determine if there was an underlying issue in her m/c's. progesterone and baby aspirin are two of the most common treatments i have encountered among people who have had recurring losses.

*it is a genetic mutation that inhibits production of an enzyme which can result in an elevated level of an enzyme called homocysteine found in blood plasma. it increases the possibility of clot-related issues in pregnancy as well as stroke and high blood pressure in general.

It's definitely something that needs to be prescribed by a doctor, even though aspirin is an over-the-counter drug. It may help some people with that specific genetic mutation, but in the general population it has been linked to an increase in miscarriages.

yes, i know. i'm sorry, i was asking the OP *assuming* that she had seen a dr about her pregnancy losses - and would be seeing one during this pregnancy as well.

i was in no way advocating the unprescribed usage of random drugs during pregnancy.

anyway OP - congratulations again and i hope this baby sticks!

Oh Kara, I am so very sorry.

I know its not a condolence right now, but please believe that if it was meant to be, it will be

I know it isn't easy, but are things still progressing on the adoption front?

I am so sorry My sister and BIL are in the same boat and have had 3 miscarriages.

It will happen for you though. My cousin and his wife tried for 13 YEARS and ended up preganant after using fertility drugs after a few years. Their son was born on my cousin(his dad's birthday) January 6, 2008 and he is happy and healthy. So it will happen for you! You are in my prayers....

I am so sorry. This is one of those things in life that no words will ever make OK. Just hang in there & talk to those around you who understand. Lean on others when you need to.
