Successful Pregnancy After Missed M C And H B Anyone

Lisa - September 7

I had a missed m/c detected at 16 weeks. We had an u/s and strong fetal heart beat at 12 weeks (171 bpm). I had a D&E. This was my first pregnancy and first m/c. I am terrified about getting pregnant again and this happening again. I have read that m/c after strong fetal heart beat at 12 weeks occurs in only 5% of pregnancies. We did n't get genetic testing so I don't know if cause was chromasomal. My doctor did not recommend testing and basically said come back when you are pregnant again. I'm trying to decide if I should insist on testing. I was wondering if anyone had gone on to have a successful pregnancy after having a similar experience or if medical intervention was necessary. I would really appreciate any info. I am in desparate need of support.

I truly understand your agony over this. I had a m/c in 10-04, then again in 1-05. I got pregnant again in 03/05 and am now at 28 weeks. I know it is scary and my heart was broken after losing the first two pregnancies, but things seem to work out. Now I am just wondering what I was thinking---ha ha .... My other children are 15 and 10....Hang in there and try not to be so stressed out. Stress can do horrible things to a body
