Worried Hopeful Father

Sepcic - September 15

My wife and i have been trying for several years now. We have had one miscarriage and two unsuccessful IUIs. We took a break for a while to gather our thoughts and SAVE money for the upcoming third IUI procedure. We had it scheduled the next month but alais we became pregnant on our own. Seven years of trying and five years since our last miscarriage and we were pregnant. My wife is now 7 weeks pregnant and we went for an ultrasound. They found just a sac with no heartbeat or fetal pole. She gave blood to check her levels and are waiting for her results. We are both worried as well as the doctor that this may be a miscarriage. I am afraid that this will be a similar miscarriage like before due to a Blighted Ovium. My question is why?? Can this be avoided somehow or increase our odds somehow?? Is there anything we can do to avoid this problem in the future? This has put a toll on both of us, but expecially my wife. She has not stopped crying since we found out the other day. We are good people but dont understand why two healthy people can not get pregnant. Our insurances dont cover any fertility stuff so it has not only been a emotional but financial strain. Thanks for listening and any help you may offer

I am 32 and I have miscarried 3 times. Twice blighted ovum and once at 10 weeks (Down's syndrome). It's tough to say why your wife is miscarrying, it might be the result of chromosomal abnormalities. From the findings you report it sounds like blighted ovum. There are some tests they do for multiple pregnancy losses. You might want to consider getting it done. But of course, it will cost you money. Good luck!
