Starting PDG after 5 miscarriages

Hi everyone, ive been looking for a site like this for a while and thought talking to you ladies would help. ill give you a little background on my situation

i have suffered 5 miscarriages between Jan 07 and August 2008, miscarriage never even occured to me when we first got pregnant, it happened very quickly and we were over the moon, shocked but over the moon, then at 7/8 weeks i started to spot and unfortunately this was the beginning, we get pregnant very easily which is one of the hardest things, after my first i went on to miscarry another 4 times, this was a very traumatic time for both myself and my partner and our families. After my 5th miscarriage i decided i could not try again and needed some time. my 3rd, 4th and 5th miscarriage were all tested as triploidy, it wasnt until the 5th that we found out the triploidy was from me each time. We were told how rare this problem was, as triploidy should not cause a recurrent problem however it did with me, after my 3rd miscarriage we had a chromosome check and both myself and my partner came back as having the correct amount and no problems could be found. we are now in the process of starting PGD at Guys, we have just had funding confirmed which we are sooooo happy about and have our next appt at Guys in October to start treatment. im happy and nervous as we dont know how many of my eggs are going to be affected and what if they all are?????? trying to think like that, trying to stay positive!!!!

Anyone going throught the same thing please feel free to ask any questions at all, be nice talking to people who understand xxxxx

Just wanted to wish you good luck. I am also having treatment at Guys (although not PGD) and they are absolutely amazing. I sure that Ros will be along shortly with her words of wisdom - she is 11 weeks PG with twins after PGD at Guys!!!

Hi Bernie,

I am so sorry for your losses.

I am 13 weeks pregnant (14 weeks LMP).. and at my NF screening yesterday I was told that it is likely that the baby has triploidy. I also conceive quickly, and karyotyping has come back normal.

Do they think your recurrent triploidy is a horrible coincidence? Did you miscarry by yourself?

Sorry to ask these questions, but I am very nervous as to what to expect.

Hi Bernie, welcome to FZ and the PGD pages! I'm sorry it's taken me a while to reply to you. I'm sosorry to hear about your miscarriages but fantastic that you now have funding and are due to start a PGD cycle at Guy's later this year. Guy's is the biggest PGD unit in the UK and the ACU is all shiny and new and the staff are so kind and caring. You're definitely in the right place. I've sure you've found the PGD chatter page now, there are lots of ladies at a similar stage to you at Guy's, all waiting for the first appointment. Please let me know if you have any questions for me, as you can see I was lucky enough for my PGD to work, I hope you are the same x

After 5 years of endo surgery, clomid, 2 x MM/C, 2 x ICSI cycles and 1 PGD cycle,

Hi everyone, yeah i have found PGD chatter after this page and all the ladies are great, its a real comfort... Hi bunty, we had our karyotyping done after m/c no.3 and both mine and my partners bloods are fine (my partner also already has a child from a previous relationship) then after karyotyping m/c 3rd,4th and 5th (4th and 5th i had to push the hospital for testing as i knew how important testing was) so when they said triploidy my consultant told me that it was just bad luck, then bad luck again with the 4th when that came back triploidy then the 5th they started asking questions and tested all 3 again and found the extra set of chromosomes had come from me..... i have had all the doctors stumped to be honest as they dont know why the recurrence is happening, i have m/c naturally each time never had D&C but have had medical management as i did start bleeding each time so needed medication to help things along, all my m/c have been at 8/9 weeks....

we have decided PGD is our best option as i need to know what portion of my eggs are normal/abnormal, i know we cant see my full egg store but just knowing they can find a normal egg will give me hope..

are you having further tests done? xxxxx

Gosh Bernie, that must be so rare...
I can see why the doctors kept assuming it must have been bad luck (2 sperm fertilising one egg) rather than an egg with two sets of chromosomes. Thank goodness you got the hospital to keep testing. I hope you get good news from the PGD.
Lots of luck to you,
M

Hi Bernie,

I am tempted to say bad luck too, re the cell division stage of triplody... because it really is so very rare and not age related. I'm pretty sure my other babies werent triploidy. It does seem very very odd though I agree, that it has happened to you so many times. You poor lamb. :hugs:

I hope this works for you now. I have had every test under the sun for my losses.. and all normal so far. I think there is a chance this pregnancy will go on well into 3rd tri and even full term... so I will have to terminate and induce as I am to far gone for a d and c now.

Please do let me know how you get on and what proportion of your eggs are normal? I wish you luck and happiness.
