Thought i would go into more detail about my dr appt...

I just finally decided to go into more detail about my appt and what the doc said specifically, that is giving me hope. I find this interesting...

so I went in on wednesday morning for my first OB> I had an US first and my bean is growing wonderfully. We have a heartrate of 172, and baby is perfect....

I then saw the doc in the next room, and he tells me i am at no greater risk than anyone else who is pregnant.
HIs reasoning is this.
When i had my twins prematurely, they had TTTS. TTTS occurs in rare circumstance of idnetical twin pregnancies. It isjust something that happens.Nothing to do with my body.And after watching a show laterthat night I learend that when you have ttts there is only a 10%chance of coming out ofthe pregnancy with 2 live babies.
Then we talked about Brocks birth, and how that whole situation went. He pretty much confirmed what we belived allalong.He said that his death was most likely casued by a cord accident. He said a babiesdeath at17 weeks is very uncommon, and that 99% of the time it is a cordaccident with the way his birth went. With himdying and not being born for 4 weeks. He said, had he died from infection, he would have been born immediately. Same with placental abruption. He saidthat 99% of chrmosome abnormailites"work themselves out" in the first trimester. And had he died from an illness ihad like diabetes, or thyroid, I would be so sick i would know i had those illneses. Which leaves cord accident. He also told me he is considered stillborn, and not miscarried, even though he died at 17 weeks, becasue he hungout for 4 weeks. The chances of a cord accident in the second or thrid trimester is 1 in 1000. And that is again just some freak thing that happens.

He then said.becaseu of my early MC, since they were not consecutive, They had nothing to do with each other. And he also said that since with all my live births, I dealt with preterm labor, we can expect that will happen again. And we will cross that bridge when we get there. Until then. i can live my life as a normal pregnant mama.

So now me and the bean are hanging out.
Last night hubby told me for the first time, that he is really excited about the baby. We are trying to thinkof names, and i have one i really want for a girl, but he has not yet agreed.

Melissa, that sounds like wonderful news to me. I hope this puts you and your family a little more at ease and you can enjoy this process a little more and not be worried sick all the time. I am glad your DH is getting excited about your little bean but are you? Are you comfortable enough to start getting excited? I hope so. Hang in there and make sure there is a clear path to the bathroom

Re: Thought i would go into more detail about my dr appt...

hey melissa
congrats on the dr appt, I hope that everything goes well for you obviously! I am doing this surrogacy transfer either tomorrow or Monday and the couple I am doing this for, the 1st 2 times they did something called PGD. I dont think its something you can do WHILE pg, but they did it on the embryos. Not this time though because they have a donor. Anyhow, what they do is take a cell from each embryo and test it for chromosomal abnormalities. Out of 14 embryos on the last transfer, only 2 came back "normal" to sustain a viable pregnancy. The others tested + for either Trisomy 18 or Downs, and there was one that showed to be somewhat ok but it may have ended up implanting and then miscarrying or spontaneously aborting resulting in a situation similar to your last pregnancy. Did they rule out possible chromosomal abnormalities that may have cause the miscarriage?
Heres hoping you the best 9 mos!! I will be praying for you!

My doc has said 2 things about chromosomal abnormalites reguaring Brocks death. One is simply, a chromosomeal reasong for a baby to die, generally does not happen at 17+ weeks, and also if it did, my body would have expelled the baby, not held on for 4 weeks.That is the general. Also my twins were tested for problems and i was told the only thing they had wrong was TTTS. and i hd another MCbaby tested and there was no issue, baby just died, and was aborted. However the most accurate time for chromosome testing iswithin 2 days of the death. Seems how Brock wasnt born for 4 weeks, the chromosome tissue would have beenso broken down, that the results likely would have been inconclusive. I decided not to do an autopsy on him, since i spetn 4 weeks planning his peacful birth, and then funeral, and i didnt want to hold up the process. I was ready to lay him to rest, without being a science project.
The doc i am seeing for the time beeing is litterally the BEST i can see. He is leading the world in maternal fetal health, and is wonderful at his job. He has seen babies die for all kinds of reasons, and so if he tells me 99.9 percent chance he died of a cord accident i am left to belive him. He said MOST babies who die in the 2nd and 3rd trimester with no major problems in the pregnancy, do die from a cord accident...

He did offer me some genetic testing to be done inthenext coupel weeks. He said before 12 weeks, and i decided against it. I would never abort anyway, and why risk losing the baby for a test, that most likely would be negative to all things? He agrees with me but said as my doc. it is his job to inform me.

He says he got cheated, because hehad Brock pickedout from thetime i was 5 weeks pregnant with my oldest. and then he died. SO now he sayd ifthisis a boy too,then he gets to name himLOL That scares me LOL

Re: Thought i would go into more detail about my dr appt...

that is great.

Unfortunately I have heard the statistics for miscarriages are pretty high. Like 1 in 4 women will have one miscarriage.

I have had two. Two too many if you ask me

good luck to you!
