Hi, I was wondering if there are women out there who had 6+m/c-s and over 36 years old and still trying. I am not sure what I have to do....should I keep trying or just give up. I also have MHTFR and I gave a birth to a boy when I was 32. Now I am 37. I did the same treatment with my last two pregnancies(2 years apart) but it did not work. My husband and my son wont a baby but my body feels so tired. I am trying since I was 25 years old. So far I had 7 m/c. My doctors are confused since we know what is the problem and doing the treatment but it is not working.....Any advice, any hope or any similar stories....

Hi Anns - I feel for you. I have had 3 m/cs and one health boy after the first one. I have had 2 this past year and I am 39. My body is so tired of being pregnant and having m/cs. I suggest you rest for awhile. Your body has been though so much... maybe you need a break physically and mentally. Take 6 mos to a year to relax, enjoy time with your son and husband and leave all the worries of pregnancy for a while. Goodluck!

Would you and your family consider adoption? I know that it is such a difficult road and some don't even want to consider it. Sometimes it might be a road the Lord is leading us towards because we have such a strong desire for a child and all other doors just keep closing. Just a thought.

Hi Anns - I am currently pregnant for the sixth time and I am 37 years old. I have had four miscarriages. I have one living child (8 years) and am currently about nine weeks pregnant. I have MTHFR as well (compound heterzygous), but my homocysteine levels are in the normal range, so my doctors don' t think that's the problem. In fact, they don't think there is a problem - just bad luck. I am taking FOLTX and baby aspirin this time. I have an appointment with the specialist this Friday.

Linda, thanks for the advice. I am going to rest that is for sure. But I did rest a while (2 years) after I had an m/c after my son was born. Where your m/c early? Looks like you need rest too, but I think we are getting old. Older you get harder it will be I think. Thanks a lot again. Good luck to you too.

Can, Thanks for responding. You know maybe I should consider adopting. You know why? When I had 4 m/c-s and doctors at that point found that noting is wrong with me I just gave up hope and start thinking about adapting. Guess what , I got pregnant 5th time and had a healthy boy. Maybe if I give up hope again and think about adapting it will happen again :-)

Erin, I think I did read you emails in MHTFR site. Actually I have learned about Foltx from those emails. None of my doctors have mentioned that to me. They said I have to be on heparin-blood thinner (I was on that with last pregnancy), baby aspirin, progesterone and just regular multivitamins. Heparin shots were very painful I am glad you are not doing it. I will cross my fingers for you. Did you start foltx before getting pregnant? I am thinking because I did not start before, that may have been the problem. I started as soon as I found I am pregnant (2 days after my period was supposed to start). I started Heparin shots and vitamin, progesterone and aspirin right away...... Good luck to you. Keep updating me....

I've been taking FOLTX and baby aspirin since two weeks before conception. My homocystine levels are normal, so they said I didn't need heperin. I am going to the high risk doctor for the first time tomorrow. I am terrified because I am 9 weeks and that's about when I learned that I lost my last pregnancy (via ultraound, no other symptoms). I am on progesterone too, although my levels were very good without it. Before I was given FOLTX, I self medicated with double folic acid, b6 and b12. My progesterone levels rose dramatically while doing that.

Erin, have you been seeing an infertility specialist? Good luck tomorrow. Keep me posted. I am seeing high risk specialist now but he seems does not know much about my problems. I need to start somevere else before going to High risk specialist.

Erin. I was wondering.....Let me know. I hope it is good news.

Is anyone still around? I have some questions and would like to talk to someone in a similar situation (repeat m/c's). Thanks
