I lost my daughter at 30 weeks due to a chromosomal abnormality in Feb of this year. I had a c section so my husband and I waited the three months to start trying again. We tried for 2 months with no luck and I also started to feel not well so I went to my doctor. After some blood work I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease and hypothyroidism. Ehh , when it rains it poors right. Its been an awful 6 months to say the least. Anyway ive been put on thyroid medicine to get my levels back to normal and told to stop trying until then. Hypothyroid can cause infertility and miscarriage. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? How long did it take to get your levels back to normal? Thanks ladies!
Our baby girl was full triploidy, probably caused by a malformed egg or sperm. They checked the placenta and there is no cancerous changes, which can sometimes happen in triploidy, and the doctor said our chances of having this happen again hare less than 0.5% at most. So this was probably just a freak accident... I don't know if that makes me feel better or worse
I'm glad we have an answer of why, and that there is no apparent reason our next pregnancy won't be completely healthy, it's a relief to know it's not something wrong with me or my husband, that it was just a really cruel twist of fate. I'm also glad that we didn't find out later, it would have been harder to carry later into the pregnancy just to find out, since it is always fatal and we would have been forced to make a hard decision. I am trying so hard to focus on these positives, the silver linings in this horrible tragedy, but the news brings back all the sadness and anger I felt a month ago.
I guess it's just going to take time, maybe more than I think, to really move on and heal.
