Before I start, thank you as always for the amazing support as I endured/endure my second miscarriage. I so appreciate it. You guys are awesome.
Today I have finally plucked myself out of the gutter and have started to do some reading. A couple of weeks ago I had an email exchange with my doctor about the way forward, but I have put that information on the backburner whilst I have wallowed in despair and given up on hope. For some reason, today I decided to do something different and started reading and trying to process our current situation with my head, not just my heart. I am going to tell you what my Doctor has said, because I would very much value your opinion. My doctor would like to do the following immune tests:
Factor 5 Leiden
Are there any other tests you think would be important, from your experiences?
Call it instinct, but when I fell pregnant I actually nearly asked him to do immune testing on me. My father has Psoriasis and my brother rheumatoid athritis and so there has been a nagging voice at the back of my head with a very vague message about immune issues. I wish I had spoken up sooner. Nevertheless, he also recommends (and this is a copy and paste of his email to me):
1. No transfer for a period of at least 6 weeks after the loss we had.
2. To thaw and fertilize the remaining eggs, do PGS on the embryos and transfer only a single euploid (normal) embryo into the uterus
3. Adjuvant therapy will include Intralipid leading up to the transfer of the embryo as well as Clexane 40mg from the day of ET
4. Unfortunately there is no “extra” monitoring to be done other than weekly scans up to about 9 weeks for reassurance.
What do you guys think of this? There is a part of me that feels we may be onto something and that hopefully, we might eventually end up with a positive outcome. Maybe this isn’t the end of the line for me after all.
