Miscarriage with twins

I am a 27 year old African American woman married with an 8 year old daughter my husband and I have been trying to conceive another child since 2005. In the summer of 2005 I found out I was pregnant. However this pregnancy was a blighted ovum and I had a D&C. I found out I was pregnant again in late fall of 2005. I had vaginal bleeding early on in the pregnancy. I thought this was strange because I never had this with my daughter. Anyhow I found that the baby was growing as it should and had a healthy heart beat, but I lost that baby at 14wks, my water broke and the baby was coming out feet first. I had a D&C as well. Tests were done on the baby and he was developing normally. I asked my doctor what could have caused this however she was unsure and felt that I could get pregnant again successfully. I became pregnant again this year 2007 in late August. Shortly after I found out I started to bleed again. I got blood work done and had ultrasounds which revealed I was carry twins. Well my husband and I were so excited. November 17th I began to bleed lightly the bleeding increased over a day with clots. I went to the ER because I was having severe pain and bleeding. They did blood work and an ultrasound and told me that I had miscarried. Needless to say my husband and I are very upset and don’t understand why this continues to happen. Do you have any advice as to what to do and the future and what is causing this problem? Thank you for taking the time to read and answer this.

I am so sorry to hear about your lossess. I've never tried to get preg. before now so I haven't experienced what you have. I can only imagine how devastating it is to be so excited and then have that dissapoint. I don't have any idea why this is happening. Are you seeing and OB/GYN or a Reproductive Endrocronolgist? The ladies on this site are very knowledgable and I'm sure someone will have some sage advise for you. The one thing I learned this week that I can pass on to you is that you musts be seeing a RE rather than an OB/GYN. Best wishes!!!! I'm sending you lots of baby dust. If it helps, a friend of mine recently gave me something called a "Dreambox" it's a native american legend that if you write your dreams down on paper and put it in this box, then hold it in your hands before going to bed every night and think about acheiving your dream than the dream will come true. If you believe in this sort of thing, I guess you'll have nothing to lose! Good luck!


This is my first month ttc, so I am not as experienced, but I would be just as angry! STupid bee-yotch doctor! What a horrible way to learn the lesson of taking your health into your own hands, and go with the research YOU find and your gut instincts. I learned a hard lesson with a neck injury I incurred in 1999, which turned out to be a broken neck, but I did not get a decent doctor's opinion until 2005, after I ended up being unable to work or walk. Luckily, I had surgery and am OK now, but I got the news about fertility issues right after getting off my last medication for chronic pain. I jsut tink KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, and this laissez-faire attitude your doctor has is unacceptable!!! My prayers are with you and your little lost angels. I am so very, truly sorry. My husband and I have a prayer box, same as dream box idea, so that is a good suggestion. It puts the decision in God's hands, which helpes me a little bit, but I have not been through what you have.
