MISCARRIAGE SUPPORT: ONLINE FORUMS HELP!

Miscarriage Support Online

I have always recommended that women who are trying to conceive or have experienced one or more miscarriages join a support group.
See www.getpregnantover40.com for more on miscarriage prevention, support and natural methods to enhance fertility
Support groups can come in many different forms. One easy, quick way to gain support is through an online forum. There's no where to travel and the anonymity is also nice for those who value their privacy and confidentiality. This study confirms that online support can be very helpful:

Women coping with the mental trauma of a miscarriage find it hard to take comfort from their friends, according to new research.

The study by scientists at the Georgia Health Sciences University's Education Discovery Institute surveyed over 1,000 women and found many seek solace from other women who had gone through similar experiences via internet message boards.

"Women who have not gone through a stillbirth don't want to hear about my birth, or what my daughter looked like, or anything about my experience," said one respondent.

Researchers observed that only 50 per cent of the women had suffered a miscarriage during the last 12 months and many were still struggling to come to terms with the experience many years later.

The study's senior author Christie Palladino said the message forums can be an important resource.

REMEMBERING LOST BABIES ON MEMORIAL DAY

Miscarriage Memorial

Many couples find comfort in finding some way to remember their baby lost through miscarriage or stillbirth. This article features a number of couples and how they decided to memorialize their child lost through miscarriage or stillbirth. Read more:

It had been four months since the funeral for Missy and Joe's stillborn son, Jason. The baby's body

had been cremated, and they had been unable to decide where to place the ashes, which remained in an urn at the undertaker's. Both were anguished at their inability to find a resting place for Jason's ashes. In conversations with their minister, they eventually decided to plant a back yard garden and to scatter the ashes there. Having reached that decision, they enlisted the help of loving friends and family to offer suggestions about plantings, manual help with tilling and fertilizing, and especially cherishing a hammock that could be hung between trees nearby with a clear and shaded view of Jason's garden. When the time came to scatter Jason's ashes, their minister joined them and their loved ones for a small dedication of this garden planted in his memory.

FIBROIDS AND MISCARRIAGE CONNECTION

Fibroids, Miscarriage and Recurrent Miscarriage Over 40

I've heard differing opinions about whether or not fibroids can affect fertility and pregnancy. I'm sure much of it depends on their size, location, etc.  I did have three rather large fibroids removed when I was around the age of 30.  The problem with fibroids is that they can grow quite large in women of reproductive age which is why I opted for the surgery.
 Here is an article that connects fibroids to miscarriage. Read more:

Fibroids, benign muscle tumors of the uterus, are estimated to affect more than one in five women of reproductive age. But little is known about the influence of these growths on pregnancy outcomes, including miscarriage, premature birth and fetal growth restriction.

 "No studies have prospectively investigated these risks in a large cohort of women early in pregnancy where presence of fibroids was uniformly assessed using ultrasound imaging. This is the first large-scale prospective study to do that," said Dr. Katherine Hartmann, the study's principal investigator. Hartmann also is assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology as well as epidemiology in UNC's schools of medicine and public health.

"Fibroids are very common, as are these potentially devastating pregnancy outcomes. But research evidence to inform clinical care is meager," she said.

Previous ultrasound studies of uterine fibroids were flawed because they used ultrasound databases including fibroids that doctors considered of concern, Hartmann said. Typically, these were fibroids of at least three centimeters. Others, often much smaller, were not uniformly noted.

"So the studies are flawed by inadequate assessment of the classification of who has fibroids and who does not," she said. "In our pilot study of 1,600 women, we discovered that the majority of those who have fibroids never have been told that they did."

Fibroids were diagnosed in 170 of the women.

Pilot study results show that women with fibroids have a 55 percent increased risk of pregnancy loss, and smaller fibroids are significantly more associated with having a miscarriage than larger ones. Moreover, it appears that presence of fibroids is uniformly associated with miscarriage throughout early pregnancy

ALL ABOUT FETAL HEART RATES

Miscarriage And Fetal Heart Rate

Just before one of my miscarriages, I had an ultrasound.

 The first thing the doctor said when he came into the room after the PA had the ultrasound positioned on my baby was "the heartbeat is slow". I started to get this sinking feeling like he was giving my baby a death sentence. 
 See Also My Story About Overcoming Miscarriage and Recurrent Miscarriage
(www.getpregnantover40.com)
Well...I know it wasn't his fault, he was just the messenger--I did lose the pregnancy.
Many women wonder what a normal fetal heartrate should be. Here is a site that explains more:

"What should my baby's fetal heart-rate be?
The normal fetal heart rate is between 110 to 180 beats per minutes (BPM), but can vary. Fluctuations of the fetal heart rate (usually associated with fetal movement) during different periods of the day are common and often rise above 160, going as high as 180 to 190 and are considered normal. If you have questions or concerns about your baby's fetal heart rate always direct them to your healthcare professional.

What hearing a healthy heartbeat signifies
Listening to a normally beating heart using a fetal ultrasound doppler as early as 8 weeks can offer reassurance and cut down on a lot of stress and help assure that the developing fetus is healthy. While miscarriage occurs in only about 15 percent of apparently normal pregnancies, it only occurs in about 1 percent of pregnancies where a normal heartbeat has been seen or heard."

NANCY KERRIGAN SPEAKS OF HER 6 MISCARRIAGES

Well, I finally have something in common with an Olympian....6 miscarriages.  Nancy Kerrigan, the Olympic skater and Dancing with the Stars celebrity opened up about how hard it was for her to complete her family.  Even though she had her first child uneventfully, she subsequently suffered recurrent pregnancy loss.  She finally succeeded in completing her family with IVF.

But as easy as her first pregnancy had been, it would be eight years before she would become a mom for the second time.
“The first time that you go in and they tell you, ‘Oh there’s no heartbeat,’ it’s devastating,” Kerrigan says of suffering “at least” six miscarriages in the years after giving birth to Matthew.
“I felt like a failure,” says Kerrigan, whose doctors were never able to determine why she kept miscarrying.

Making matters worse was having to tell Matthew that he would have to wait to become a big brother.  “Once, the pregnancy was far enough along that we actually told our son and he was so excited,” says Kerrigan. “How do you explain [a miscarriage] to a little kid? Having to tell them that it was now gone and they had to take it out? He asked why and we had to explain, ‘Because it’s dead. It’s not alive anymore.’ That was awful.”

MISCARRIAGE AND QI, CHINESE MEDICINE

A Woman Must Recover Her Qi and Get Relief From The Emotional Strain Of Miscarriage

Here is an interesting article about miscarriage and what it does to a woman from a traditional chinese medicine viewpoint.

See Also Other Articles On Pregnancy Over 40 and Alternative Treatments For Infertility www.getpregnantover40.com

 I could certainly relate to some of the information presented here about recovering from past miscarriages before  trying to conceive again.  Not only do you need your "Qi" back, but you must also recover from the emotional strain of miscarriage.

From the article:

he process of maintaining a pregnancy past the 1st trimester is much like driving on a paved country road for 3 months without veering off onto the soft shoulder. Being pregnant with suboptimal balance
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Click here for our line of fertility necklaces
is much like driving a car with two wheels on the soft unpaved shoulder of a road. If all four wheels get on and stay on the paved road, the pregnancy will go on. But, there is higher chance for all four wheels to slide off onto the unpaved soft shoulder and get stuck, or for the patient to miscarry.

A woman, who experiences miscarriage, loses Qi (vital energy) and Blood according to TCM as well as fetus, meaning that a miscarriage is as draining to a woman's energy as labor. Indeed there is a saying that proclaims ¡®a miscarriage is more serious than labor. If a proper treatment is not made after miscarriage, imbalanced condition can be aggravated so making her more difficult to get pregnant. With recurrent miscarriages, a woman can lose her hope and sometimes cannot overcome fear and depression that she may be unable to reach to 40th week of pregnancy. Actually this kind of emotional strain can aggravate imbalanced condition of body. Therefore, treatment plans for miscarriage in TCM include:

1. Recovery from losses of Qi and Blood due to recent miscarriage

2. Distress and relief of emotional strain

3. Correction of pre-existing imbalance of body

These purposes can be achieved well by acupuncture and/or Chinese herbs. Even though once pregnancy is achieved, continuous treatments by acupuncture and herbs up to 12th week of pregnancy can help a woman to prevent miscarriage.

ASPRIN IN PREGNANCY=MISCARRIAGE RISK

Taking Low Dose Aspirin In Pregnancy

Taking low dose aspirin is something many women do - and is recommended by some fertility clinics. I also took low dose aspirin - even when I was trying to conceive naturally because I had heard that it could help with early miscarriage by eliminating small clots.

See also: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on getting pregnant over 40 and preventing miscarriage 


 However, this article raises concerns about taking aspirin. Of course you should check with your doctor before taking anything in pregnancy. Read more:

Taking aspirin in early pregnancy may trigger a miscarriage, women were warned yesterday.

The claim by researchers has shocked doctors who prescribe low-dose aspirin thinking it can prevent some expectant mothers from losing their babies.

They warned the findings should be treated with caution. The miscarriage risk for women taking aspirin or similar painkillers could be sevenfold higher than for those not taking the drugs, the Danish study suggests.

It is the first to make the link, The scientists admit their findings do not show that taking aspirin actually causes miscarriage.

But the 'association is new and needs to be confirmed' by further investigation, says the study, published today in the British Medical Journal today.

Last night British experts urged mothers-to-be not to panic. They advised them to seek medical advice about what painkillers to take or to use paracetamol.

Dr Gunnar Nielsen and her team looked at the medical records of 1,462 pregnant women who had received prescriptions for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory painkillers (NSAID) during the period from 30 days before conception to birth.

They also compared 4,268 women who had miscarriages, of whom 63 had taken aspirin or similar NSAID painkillers, with 29,750 women who had live births. Although such drugs have been suspected of causing a range of health problems in the unborn baby, the study showed no increased risk of birth defects, low birth weight or premature birth.

But an extra risk of miscarriage in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy emerged from the data. It found a
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm

doubling of risk for those who had taken aspirin between seven and nine weeks before a miscarriage, which rose to a sevenfold risk among women who took it up to one week earlier.

However, just three miscarriages were responsible for the figures giving a sevenfold risk and the researchers admit aspirin might have been prescribed to treat pain that signalled an impending miscarriage.

Professor Phil Baker, professor of foetal and neonatal health for Tommy's Campaign, which funds medical research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth said NSAID painkillers should be used with caution during pregnancy.

'If a pregnant women needs a mild analgesic or painkiller then paracetamol is a relatively safe drug,' he said.

REASONS FOR MORNING SICKNESS, PREGNANCY HEALTH

 Nausea and Vomiting In Pregnancy May Protect Us From Harmful Foods

I had horrible nausea with all my pregnancies, especially my successful one.
 I have often heard that nausea can indicate that you have a healthy pregnancy because your hormones are strong (although I should mention that I miscarried a number of pregnancies with nausea).  Here is an interesting article about how morning sickness may be nature's way of protecting against miscarriage.   Apparently, it can keep us away from harmful foods which could affect our pregnancies.  Read more:

SEE ALSO ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE AND HOME REMEDIES FOR MISCARRIAGE (getpregnantover40.com)

 

The analyses suggest that morning sickness occurs more often in pregnant women who consume high

amounts of sugar, fats, alcohol, and meat. While, pregnant women who eat more cereal-based foods suffer less NVP. The results demonstrate convincing evidence that a connection between diet and morning sickness does exist and reinforces the scientist’s belief that an adaptive evolutionary link exists that nausea and vomiting during pregnancy serve to prevent the ingestion of harmful or toxic foods that may lead to miscarriage or harm to the developing fetus

MISCARRIAGE CAUSED BY ESTROGEN PROGESTERONE SENSITIVITY

Hormones and Miscarriage

There's quite a bit of controversy about whether or not progesterone can help women who experience recurrent miscarriage carry to term. Some articles say it can prevent miscarriage and other articles that claim there is no benefit at all. Here is an article about how some miscarriages may be caused by a sensitivity to hormones in which case progesterone injections would actually cause more harm than good. Read more:

"A new research carried on at the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, Israel, might have shed some light on the origins of these unexplained miscarriages.

The scientists found that a immune hypersensitivity in women with recurrent miscarriage to female

sex hormones (that regulate pregnancy), estrogen and progesterone, in skin tests. 


See Also: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on miscarriage and the top 10 things you may not know about miscarriage

This is a warning signal, as some controversial current therapies against miscarriages include progesterone injections.
“Previous studies had shown a connection between miscarriage and unusual immune system responses, but none had looked at the role of these sex hormones,” the researchers say.

The team injected the hormones into the skin of 29 women who had suffered at least three unexplained miscarriages, and 10 women who had successfully gave birth to a healthy, normal baby and never experienced a miscarriage.

26 women in the first group showed immune hypersensitivity to one of the two hormones, and 17 of them are hypersensible to both, while the women that had not experienced miscarriage were totally immune.

“This is really novel,” says Walker.

“It’s a small sample size but if the results are that profound, it definitely warrants more research.”
