Hi, I am 38 yrs old and got pregnant with a singleton from my first IVF cycle. We did ICIS and my husband's sperm didnt fertilize all the eggs even with ICIS. I took progesterone and estrogen to support the pregnancy and at 6 weeks, we saw a strong heartbeat that kept going strong until week 9 when it stopped. The RE doesn't know what happened. Today I had a D & C and they sent the fetus off to a lab for chromsome testing. My RE suggested we get genetic testing and autoimmune testing. My question is how much infortmation will we be able to get from the lab results from the fetus and can you offer any insight??
I am sorry to hear of your loss. The screening suggested is very sensible as it may identify the cause of your loss which may be possible to treat.
I was pregnant naturally last year, only to miscarriage at 5.5 weeks as well. Thank you.
