  1. i am so sorry for all your losses. We have also been struggling with infertility for 3+ years and have had 3 miscarriages. I was diagnosed with hyper active NK cells recently. Never had even heard of it before. My NK cells in my uterus attack the embryo. I am now doing IVF with intra lipid infusions to counteract the cells and it has high success rates. Have you ever had your NK cells tested? I pray everything goes well since your hysteroscopy results. RPL is SO hard. Hugs to you!!!

    • Thank u! I am so sorry to hear what u have gone through as well. It sucks!! No, I have not yet. If you dont mind me asking, what doctor do you see that tested you for this? My doctor seems to think there isnt enough “data” to support the NK theory. I, on the other hand, am willing to try anything! Best of luck to u with the new treatment.

  2. hey, I’ve been through similar experiences to yours. So far 1 ectopic, 2 miscarriages and an undiagnosed corneal ectopic at 13 weeks where I nearly died. Docs recommended I go with a GC as its so dangerous. That’s what I’m doing. Transfer is hopefully November. Fight on, stay strong. You WILL get there xx

  3. I’m so excited for you! I want to hug you and I don’t even know you! I have had two devastating miscarriages myself and am now 21 weeks with a sweet baby boy! Congratulations to you and your husband! Look forward to seeing more about your wonderful journey. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Very sorry for your losses, I too have had four miscarriages. I hope you don’t mind me asking but after your third loss were you and you husband tested for MTHFR? Typically, called a repeated loss panel. I noticed you had three losses and then you brought home your miracle boy after genetic testing,..I Also, noticed your son has lip and tongue tie…a condition that is linked to the MTHFR gene defect. I’m a mama that has MTHFR and we’re having to undergo IVF with genetic testing as our last effort to bring home our rainbow baby. Congratulations on your bundle of joy!

    • Im so sorry for your losses as well. Yes, as a matter of fact I am a carrier for MTHFR. I took Folgard my final (successful) pregnancy for it! I had the panel you are referring to as well. I wish you all the best in bringing home your rainbow โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ
