I haven't been on the site in a while, not really for any reason but been trying to keep myself busy. I think about all the mommy's & get on to check on ya guys. It's been a good month & a half since the D&E, and AF just came & went. I was suprised it came so quick. I was expecting it to take at least 2 months since last 2 m/c's took 2months+ to get AF. So as unpleasant as having a D&E is, it was a pretty easy procedure all around.

I tested + for alpha thalasemia. All I know about it is, my red blood cells aren't producing or carrying enough oxygen to my body. So if DH tests + for it, it would be the reason I'm miscarrying. Don't know what treatment is. DH & I are going thru genetic counseling in the next couple wks, meaning my DR's are giving both of us every test under the sun. Until I have every test back, we're not going near TTC. I refuse to get thru a 4th m/c, but it is in God's hands, so whatever his plan is, is his plan.  So, I've got the MTHFR prob, now this alpha-thalasemia thing, I suppose I'm just glad DR's are finding things, instead of finding nothing, and having no reasons behind the m/c's.

I'm still staying +, with little bouts of depression, when I think about it, but overall I'm making it. I believe in God's plan, and I know THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON.

Hi! I love your attitude....I miss you! I know we love testing negative for all the tests we do except for two (opk and FRER), but is like you say, atleast they are finding the reasons why you had the m/c and will most probably able to fix the problem.

take care my friend!

Hi Kimmy,

I too have missed you, and its so good to hear you sounding so upbeat and positive.  And I am also glad you are getting some answers here!   I am sorry you are dealing with this again, but I also believe all will work out in the end for you.  You are too good a person to have it not.

All the best to you, and keep in touch.
