  1. Hi! Just wondering how long after your second miscarriage did you guys start trying and also when did you get pregnant after your miscarriage? My husband and I are now going through my second miscarriage but we are still hopeful and want to keep trying!

  2. I just had a miscarriage December 22,2018 .. I was 6 weeks and 2 days .. do you have any advice ?

  3. I am 20 years old and accidentally got pregnant and had a miscarriage November 26th. And honestly even though it wasn’t planned it was still hard as I had saw the baby and the heartbeat and fell in love. I would love to ttc but I am no longer in a relationship. I’m not ready for a baby right now but I feel like it’s gonna take a long time for me to get pregnant again and time is ticking idk I feel weird because it’s like I want to be pregnant again cause I feel like it will help me cope and deal with this loss but I don’t because I’m not ready.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this. I am currently going through my third miscarriage😭 and will be ttc when I can. Just subscribed, can’t wait to keep up with your journey. Thinking of you ❤️

  5. I’m so sorry for your losses! As a mother I can only imagine how hard this must be. Positive thoughts and prayers your way. Saw you on Liza Adele’s page and thought I’d show some love! New Subscriber!

  6. Hi Erika, I saw a post below where someone mentioned cutting out dairy altogether. This might be great for some people but please check with your doctor if you already consume dairy and are thinking of cutting it out. I’m only saying this because when I had my bloodwork done for secondary infertility my calcium levels came back low and my doctor suggest increasing my dairy intake to get them back up. I don’t recommend this for anyone else it’s just always important to check with your doctor before cutting out entire food groups you have already been consuming. Sorry if this seems like a bit of a rant I would just hate for someone to cut out a food group and it cause potential problems 🙂 Praying for healthy baby blessing for Christmas for those on the ttc journey.

  7. I have a slightly elevated level for APS. If I were you I would get tested for everything you can. Some outcomes of APS are thrombosis, ogliohydramnios, and miscarriage. With my firstborn I had a platelet disorder called gestational thrombocytopenia (could lead to hemorrhaging aka thrombosis)…. My secondborn had potter's sequence (no kidneys / no bladder, therefore no amniotic fluid aka ogliohydramnios)…. My third baby was a missed miscarriage at 10.5 weeks. All my past pregnancies have been touched by APS… and the crazy thing is that my level is 16. It's 1 point into the indeterminate zone but my doctor believes that 1 point is enough to be causing issues. I'm currently 13 weeks and 1 day pregnant and my protocol this time was to call my doctor asap after a positive test. I immediately began 81 mg low dose aspirin a day as soon as I received a positive… then my doctor prescribed me progesterone pills to take. Every day I take 1 low dose aspirin, 1 progesterone pill, 2 folic acid pills (500 mg per pill), and my usual prenatal vitamins.

    I never thought I would have the losses I've had and I wouldn't wish a stillbirth or a miscarriage on anyone. Even though you may feel next time will be okay without further testing, you just never know. After my son's stillbirth I thought for sure my next pregnancy would be my rainbow baby. I had no reason to believe otherwise. I was told my son's condition was a fluke and that everything should be okay the next time. It wasn't okay. My baby girl's heart just randomly stopped at 10.5 weeks with no genetic abnormalities found. That's when my doctor said she wanted to run every test possible. I agreed to have the tests done because my losses have taken a huge toll on me and I never want to go through that again. My only flag on all the tests was that 1 point on anti phospholipid syndrome…. and the fix is so simple that I would feel so bad if I ended up with another loss all because I didn't know to take a low dose aspirin every day. So far this baby is doing great. I had an ultrasound the day before yesterday and the baby is measuring ahead by 4 days and looks completely healthy. Only time will tell if the low dose aspirin did it's magic and I have a complication free pregnancy.

    Best of luck to you! ❤

  8. Im thinking about you!! 🤞🏻

    Since TTC again since loosing my son in Jan 2018, I just had a third cycle not work. I have had three melt downs this week. My Ava bracelet had me going as my temp and resting heart rate was high until it wasnt and AF was here. Heart wrenching doesnt even describe the pain, sadness and anger I have.

    I try to say Im going to stop and not obsess but my heart has other plans. 🤷‍♀️ glutton for punishment I suppose.

    I am also looking at a diet plan as well for health and fertility reasons. Looking at more greens, mixed berries, lean meats and protein.

    I pray that 2019 is better for both of us. 💜

  9. New sub, found you recently and you seem to be such a genuine, sweet girl who will make such a caring mother someday, prayers for you and your husband before he has to leave, my first pregnancy ended in miscarriage at 11 weeks and then two years of trying and being so confused and discouraged, and then we got a kitten and I worked on decreasing my stress and got pregnant, and it made all the waiting and pain seem like it was not in vain, and here I am 28weeks with #3 and still have a big soft spot in my heart for any woman on a TTC journey, we all need a cheer squad on this journey because it is not easy! Keep that hopeful feeling strong ☺️

  10. 19:55 "CLINICAL early pregnancy…" That word leapt off the page for me. Most allopathic medical places won't acknowledge that a pregnancy existed unless it survived long enough to leave 'clinical proof.' And they won't diagnose a woman with recurrent pregnancy loss until she's had three miscarriages that occurred late enough all to have 'clinical proof.' The proof can be an early IUP on ultrasound, serial beta hcg tests that show an increase, etc. It's rather cold and heartless to the mothers whose embryos died before such testing.
    (I know that your doctor believes you, so this is not a problem you are experiencing.)

  11. This was so helpful to me. I wasn’t sure how to proceed after my miscarriage and now I’m going to start looking into getting tested too

  12. It’s been 12 months since my husband and I have been trying also but no pregnancies yet. I totally get the feeling of confusion and thinking this is not how you thought your story would go. Stay hopeful! Your time will be soon (:

  13. I did all of the recurrent loss panel tests and we found nothing. We also did the chromosome karyotypes on me and my husband… also normal. $3000 bill (after insurance). I hope you get answers. <3 <3

  14. I’ve my blood test done for all of my hormones (I had 3 miscarriage) and I diagnosed with subclinicus hypothyerosis which means deficient activity of the thyroid gland. That’s why I can’t keep the embrio. So I will get medicine and We will see… 🙂

  15. I wanted to test on Dec 24 but unfortunately I had to go to my ob last week (turns out a huge cyst bursted and I have a Kidney infection on top) and I did not have ovulate this month. 😣

  16. Hopefully we all in this group can get pregnant and have healthy babies in 2019. We have been trying for 19 months now. I stopped using my Ava Bracelet this cycle. Been using 6 months prior. I was getting excited when my temperature remains high previous cycle but of course started period a day late. I'm trying to relax and not be focused this month. My next period is due 12/27, so I may test on Christmas morning just to see if I might have a positive. Christmas will be hard with my new niece and the family enjoying having a baby around. They are so ungrateful (brother in law and wife) and here we are struggling. All the blood work and tests came back normal. My tubes are clear. Have u considered getting your tubes checked?

  17. Hi Erika, just wanted to say how much I love your videos, you seem like such a lovely genuine person. I know from your other video that you are feeling disheartened about your channel as you wanted to be a family vlogger , please don’t be disheartened by that, TTC journeys are very important parts of family vlogs. I am so sorry for your losses. I am keeping everything crossed for a healthy pregnancy for you x

  18. This whole TTC journey is so draining! I had a missed miscarriage at 9 weeks as well about a month ago, I had a d&c the day after we found out and I completely stopped bleeding two weeks after the surgery. My doctor did an ultrasound to confirm that everything was ok. He also said that we can start ttc again after I get my period. Either I get my period naturally or I have to call my doctor so he can prescribe me fermara to induce my period. I might want to get some tests done too before start ttc again. I really hope that 2019 brings good news for all of us 🌈

  19. You were so calm when you said “wow, run that red light dude” lol I yell at people for that and not using their blinkers😂😂 the blinkers are my pet peeves😂😒

  20. Hi Erika. I enjoy watching your videos, thanks for keeping us updated. I’ve been thinking about you this month and have been praying that you will get pregnant again and have a healthy pregnancy. I’m so sorry for your losses. ♥️♥️

  21. Sorry for your losses. I needed progesterone for both my pregnancies. I agree with your doctor on wfpb diet, in my opinion the best thing to remove from your diet is the dairy because of all the hormones. I normally don't comment on videos but felt compelled because you are so dedicated on doing everything you can. Watch videos by Dr. Neal Bernard regarding dairy and it may help.

  22. Long post alert! I’ve had these tests done before. The APS test came back with a positive or negative result, mine being negative for this condition. I’ve had 10 miscarriages, so this is why I’ve had these tests done. Also, my husband and I did the karyotyping to make sure our chromosomes appear normal, and they both checked out fine.

    I know it’s hard to hear stuff like “it will happen eventually…” But chances are…it will happen for you! I’m an odds gal and I’ve been following repeat loss forums for about 6 years. It seems like 99% of the time, women don’t have more than two consecutive losses. So in my opinion, that means your chances of next pregnancy being healthy are really high. I hope and pray you aren’t one of the people that keep having repeat losses.

    Also, you could ask your dr if he’s fine with you taking a daily baby aspirin. It has blood thinning qualities that could help in case you do have some mild blood clotting.

    One more thing, re the day 21 test…I had that done once and was told my progesterone was so low that I didn’t ovulate. But a few days later I got a BFP. So those tests are not 100% accurate. I still miscarried, and the low progesterone was an indication of a non viable pregnancy. But clearly I ovulated.

    Keep holding onto that hope and faith that you’ll have a healthy pregnancy!!

  23. So sorry about your losses. I completely understand. I had 2 losses this year. Jan at 12 weeks baby measured 9 weeks and June at 13 weeks baby measured 12 weeks. The 1st loss no genetic tests were done to baby but my antiphospholid’s were tested and the RE said my levels were low. With the 2nd pregnancy this year I was on heparin injections and baby aspirin daily. Genetic tests were done on baby on the loss in June and the findings were trisomy 13. High risk doc says there is less than 1% chance for that to happen again, but who knows. Currently I am 9 weeks and my OB has checked antiphospholids this time and said they were normal but to give me piece of mind she started the heparin injections and baby aspirin anyway. There was a heartbeat at 7 weeks so fingers crossed for a healthy baby. I will have genetic tests done next Thursday and praying for healthy baby, but it is really hard to get my hopes up as you mentioned due to the past losses. I do have a 16 year old healthy daughter I had her when I was 21 and a 4 year old healthy son I had at 32 years old that I went to RE because it took longer to get preggo. I am currently 37. I don’t know why we have to go through difficult times with infertility and it sucks but being able to watch videos has helped me tremendously. My fingers are crossed that you conceived this cycle and have a healthy baby as well. Contact me anytime if you have additional questions. Love your videos. 😀
