Miscariage at 8 weeks with donor eggs

Hi there,

I am new to this forum, and here is my story. I have unexplained infertility for the past 5 years. Had 4 IVF cycles, and several IUI's, only second IVF was chemical pregnancy the rest nothing. The problem is that we produce great embryos, but they don't live very long. For example out of 12 embryos, on 5th day we have only 2 left.
So we decided to go for donor egg. We found great donor, proven, 27 years old. She produced 14 eggs, 11 fertilized and we were left with 4 on day 5. They put in 2, and we froze 2. It all looked very promising, considering we had some to freeze at all!
On Nov 4, I found out I was prego! I was so excited. Everything went well until yesterday, when on 2nd u.s. they told me that I lost it.....at 8 weeks. God why is this happening to me??? I am sitting and crying all day, so depressing.
I also have few smaller fibroids, and a bit of endo. Please help, is there anyone with similar situation? Is it my uterus, is it the sperm.....I have no clue....I am going tomorrow for d/c, they will send it off for testing. It takes 3 months for the results....

Please write to me
Take care everybody....

I am so sorry to hear about your miscarriage, especially after everything you've been through. Most miscarriages at that stage are caused by chromosomal issues and is not something that can be prevented. Unlike most women on here, however, you'll actually get an answer to what happened, since they're doing the testing.

I know this is tough to get through, but please know that you're not alone. Lots of women on here (myself included) have gone through one or more miscarriages. Take care of yourself and take some time to grieve your loss. Then, once you feel ready again, try a frozen cycle with the two remaining embryos. The fact that you got pregnant once with these embies is a good sign, so hopefully it will happen again, and next time turn into a full-term, normal pregnancy.

Take care...
