Anyone experienced MULTIPLE MISCARRIAGES and then went on to have a healthy child?

    My sister has had a few. First pregnancy miscarried in first trimester then went on to have two healthy babies. Tried for a third baby but miscarried at 15 weeks, then at 20 weeks. She then went on to have a healthy baby after the two miscarriages.
    She had an issue with an incompetent cervix. For her last pregnancy the doctor put in a stitch to keep the cervix closed (not sure what this is called). She had to have lots of bed rest etc and her son was born two weeks early.

    Incompetent cervix: miscarriage causes

    Thanks for suggestion.
    Having an incompetent cervix was what I read about before and checked with my doc.
    I was told I don't have incompetent cervix or abnormal uterus shape either.

    Am happy to hear your sister went on to have successful pregnancy :)

    Cousin of mine had two miscarriages but now has three very healthy children (one just represented the USA in an international under-20 sporting event). Her second miscarriage was very late and they had to induce delivery of a stillborn baby. Was very hard on her emotionally, but she got through it with some help.

    Not sure the cause of the miscarriages. I think one might have been related to an illness the mother had during the pregnancy (like the flu or something).

    But getting pregnant and having a baby can still happen, even if you've had problems in the past.

    Good luck.

    My neighbor had three miscarriage before she had a healthy baby. Her miscarriage was not found to be related to any specific reasons.
    For myself I had two time of spotting when I was carrying my daughter who is one year now. The doctor said there was nothing much they can do about it. So I can totally understand your feeling.
    Good luck and am sure u will have a healthy baby this time

    I had two miscarriages before becoming pregnant with my first child. They were unexplained and I had d&c for both. For my successful pregnancies, my doctor put me on baby aspirin and progesterone for the first few months. I have two kids now. It's a really tough experience, especially when there are no answers. I read as much as I could about miscarriages and made a few lifestyle changes as well.

    I had two miscarriages, both at about 6 weeks, no tests were offered and no reasons were given. Then tried raspberry leaf tea, acupuncture and aspirin and had a successful pregnancy. Just moved to HK and currently dealing with another miscarriage at 6 weeks - forgot about the aspirin this time. Naively thought that after one healthy pregnancy we were in the clear. When we try again, I will be taking aspirin.
