I was talking to the 70 year old twit of a doctor in bum fuck no where red neck Alaska that is supposed to know, and he doesn't, so I'm curious since no one has a fucking clue why I lost my baby, would exposure to me in the first few days of pregnancy to radiation, harmful chemicals, things of that sort cause this? I remember around that time, perhaps a week or so before I was finishing up a project that used heavy amounts of radiation, and a lot of chemicals, ridiculous amounts of chemicals, but we took all the safety precautions when we worked with them... I dunno, I just want to know what happened.
Causes of miscarriages...
Well, my Helmsman is right, the statistics are something like one in 4 don't make it for a myriad of reasons... Sometimes it is a problem with genetics, sometimes, the embryo just does not come together correctly and there is a placenta, a sac, and no embryo inside (called a blighted ovum). I believe it is true that if you are working with teratogens (those various and sundry things that are around us that are dangerous for developing embryos) it could be that was a cause. My only thought is it might not have been too, since you used all the precautions and then some. Maybe it was just one of the 'statistics'.What is true is that for you, it is not 'just a statistic', it was yours... So not to say that some grief won't be involved, but it happens, so try not to blame. Although we all know it makes us feel better to blame!I found you a good site on 'the stats' so you can research. I will keep rooting for you to have a new embryo in a few months!http://www.nichd.nih.gov/health/topics/Miscarriage.cfmNow, after that, some people have multiple losses. If you end up having three or more miscarriages, there should be more testing done by a fertility specialist. There are such antibodies as the anti-cardiolipid antibody that exist in your blood and can be counteracted with drug therapy. Sometimes, a pregnancy needs to be supported by progesterone therapy... Normal pregnancy can happen though. One of my friends had three miscarriges and now has a lovely son~K
My GF lost a baby about three years ago, which in my case was a blessing since I don't want children....EVER, but for her it was tough. Sorry to hear you went through it.
There isn't a single cause. It could be the elements, age of the female, truma or stress, drugs, harmful chemicals, or other causes.
In our case I think it was her age, she's 44 and I'm 33. Maybe, I just don't know for sure.
BTW I'm very good with kids and have been a teacher since I can remember, but HAVING kids....no thanks.
I was the same way... am the same way, I didn't want kids, and I still don't, but, I was pregnant and going to have it... and actually really happy about it.
It can't be my age, i was stressed but not terribly, no drugs, but lots of harmful chemicals. LOTS, but like I said, we took all the precautions.
I'm really sorry to hear about your miscarriage. My sister had two abortions when she was young, then followed with about 3 miscarriages... and now has a baby. Having already done all of the research with and for her about them, I know it is pretty common and likely that even if you hadn't had exposure to the chemicals, it would probably still have happened. It wasn't your fault.
Also.. I know you probably don't need some kid telling you this but.. if it was meant to be, it would have followed through. Everything happens for a reason *hugs*
