Hi there I was wondering if anyone out there can help. I have suffered 4 miscarriages in the last year 2 early and 2 late (at 16 weeks and most recently at 5 months when I delivered our daughter Catherine). There was no warning whatsoever with the loss of Catherine, my waters broke after a build of pressure for about 5 minutes with no pain or contractions. When we went to the hospital they found that my cervix was closed but Catherine had died so they had to induce me to deliver her which was heartbreaking. We have had every test imaginable after the third miscarriage including full bloods to test hormone levels, chromosomes tests on us both, test for antiphospholipid anti-bodies, a hysteroscopy under general anaesthetic and everything came back with normal results. We just want to know why this keeps happening to us and would really appreciate if anyone out there would have any advice to help us. I already have a 14 year old son from a previous relationship when I was very young and had no problems whatsoever with that pregnancy other than the fact that it was a ventouse delivery as my cervix stopped dilating at 8cm and my son got stuck in my pelvis. I also had a colonoscopy and Leeps treatment done on my cervix for CIN II cells 4 years ago and had to have a D&C after the pregnancy I lost last year at 16 weeks. Hopefully someone out there will be able to help us to ask the right questions when we go for the post-mortem meeting with our obstetrician in 2 weeks.
