Been better hun, taking each day as it comes! I phoned the NHS Direct last night and they think it could be that there's some tissue still left, but because I'm not in agony there not worried, It's eased today so hopefully things will be better. I don't drink Alcohol and I rarely have coffee, I stopped a lot of things when I was pregnant to make sure it never hurt my babe but something did :( xx

Becky, I was thinking of you today. How are you feeling? Is there anything in your diet that might be affecting you? Coffee? Alcohol? Maybe a herbal practitioner may be able to help you, but you would have to ask for recommendations. I don't know any. Although I have heard of one in Scotland who has helped a friend of mine who has also had multiple miscarriages. Last I heard her current pregnancy is going well.

I was on the baby asprin with this one thinking it would help but it didn't :( I go back for a scan at the hospital so hopefully more tests can be done, but i know a few people who have had the same problem and no help due to it being common :S

I really think you need to be worked up by a specialist. I'm from the US, so I have no idea what the routine NHS testing involves. I would hope that a full medical work-up was done, to rule out any other anomalies with you that could be imapcting your ability to sustain a pregnancy (i.e endocrine disorders). I do know that, at the very least, someone with your history would more than likely be started on progesterone within a day or two of a positive pregnancy test. Although you do not appear to have trouble with conceiving, it would not be unusual for someone like yourself to be placed on a similar regimen to those undergoing fertility treatments. That would include such things a taking a prenatal vitamin daily even before "trying" to conceive, and perhaps, if indicated, a daily baby aspirin if you are actively trying.

The fact that you have successfully carried a pregnancy to term in the past does not mean that you have not since developed an issue that is causing you to repeatedly miscarry now. It also does not rule out the possibility of a genetics issue; it only means that your living child did not, by luck, have those traits.

Michelle Waldbillig -We did stop trying for a baby that's how I conceived this baby we gave up but still had hope!

Mary- I think I will have to but I had all the NHS tests when I had my 3rd Miscarriage and everything came back clear and there was no sign of problems because I've already had one child before the 4 miscarriages

Have you been to a specialist or had any type of genetic work-up? While miscarriages are not uncommon, 4 consecutive miscarriages is usually indicative of a specific issue that actually could be corrected. For example, if it is suspected that you have a hormonal insufficiency, something as simple as taking a progesterone suppository daily from the day you confirm your pregnancy through the first trimester could prevent another loss.

As well, if it is a genetics issue - such as you and your partner both being carriers of a specific trait that, combined, is incompatible with life, you might want to know that before trying to conceive again.

I am so very sorry for all of your losses, but I strongly encourage you to have a thorough work-up to try and find out WHY this happening repeatedly, and what, if anything, can be done to help you carry a baby to viability.

I know a couple that had 6 miscarriages. They had resigned themselves to the fact they wouldn't have children and the night before the hubby got the snip had "suicide sex". Well they ended up pregnant with a daughter and finally carried to full term. She is now a healthy 13 year old.

Maybe stop "trying" and just "give up" having a baby. You never know what will happen.
