    Trying to conceive at 2 losses
    An_250842 posted:
    I'm 33 yrs old and my fiance is 34 and we have lost both of our little girls at 23W. The first on lost was 20 DEC 2011. Her heart stop and she was a still born. There was no cause for her death. The second lost was this year. I went into premature labor on 27Jan. The death certificate said very premature labor (b/c of the 23W) and chorioamnionitis. I'm wondering do I have some infertle problem? If it's something else, please let me know what I should talk to OB about. Thanks for your help

    Dear An_250842, Yes you should definitely talk to your obstetrician and maybe even ask him/her for a referral to a maternal fetal medicine specialist for a consultation. You might even want to get a name and travel to talk with an expert that does research in preventing 2nd and 3rd trimester pregnancy losses. In the pursuit of parenthood, pregnancy losses are the hardest situations for both parents and their providers. Health care professionals don't always have answers but there are experts out there that are looking for those answers and they can share the latest knowledge and hopefully guide you to a better outcome. Just knowing that you are equipped with the latest knowledge and being watched by experts should at least give you the confidence that you are doing everything that you can for your child and each other. There are also grief counselors that specialize in helping couples cope with these issues. You don't have to struggle with this alone. I would love to know if you have success as your story is one that touches my heart. Best wishes. (

    Dr. Walmer,

    Thanks so much for your concern and the advise. I have HTN and my OB and Maternal Fetal Physician feels that may have been the reason last lost. So my OB is doing a big work up. I'm glad she is doing this. I just want to try fix the underlining issue if I can. My providers were hurt because everything was going and then I went into preterm labor. I will definitely keep you updated when I have success. I will not give up hope because there are Physicians like you, who cares and have the knowledge. Thank You so much.
