About

I’m 33 years old and live with my loving husband in the beautiful countryside of Scandinavia. For the past 3 years we’ve been trying to have a baby, with some difficulty; but even after four pregnancies all we have to show for is loss, grieve and heartache.

We have no reason or explanation. All tests have come back normal. Doctors keep insisting there’s nothing wrong and we’ve just been unlucky. I refuse to believe that, though have little hope the doctors will ever figure out what is wrong with me (or us).

  1. Hi there, I am so sorry to read of your losses. It certainly isn’t easy and when doctors find “nothing” for an explanation it is that much more difficult. Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting, I always enjoy hearing from others and learning their stories. I hope one day we can both write our “happy ending” to this family creation part of our journeys.

  3. Hi. Your posts are just heart wrenching. I’m so sorry for your losses and the responses you have received. Have you considered coming to the US to one of the RPL specialists in New York for a work-up? I recommend Amy Klein’s Fertility Diary blog @ the New York Times, if you haven’t read it. She ended up having a successful pregnancy (through donor eggs) after working with Dr. Braverman in New York, who diagnosed serious immune issues that were causing her MC’s. He seems to have the magic diagnostic touch.

    Whatever route you take, good luck!

    • Thank you for your suggestions and wishes. I’ve heard a lot about Dr. Bravermen and I am considering this option, but I thought I should try the local specialist first, for practical and financial reasons. I don’t know Amy Klein’s blog yet, I’ll check out!

  4. Hi, I am currently undergoing testing for the same genetic problems you mentions in one of your posts. I have very similar results for antithrombin III. Guess we are just unlucky. I also love to travel and have a very diverse genetic makeup. Hang in there. My high risk ob thinks heparin shots are the way to go for people like us.

    • Thank you for commenting and encouraging me! I’m still waiting for the specialist appointment to see what he’ll say about my results. But I do hope it will be a simple treatment. Hoping 2016 will be our year and we will get our babies! Happy new year!

      • You’re welcome. I am hoping to see a genetic counselor soon. We didn’t find out about this until after our 2nd baby who was stillborn on Nov 6 2015. We miss him every day.

  5. Hi there, I have silently followed your blog for a while and just wanted to contact you to hopefully get some feedback from you about your experience with Dr Braverman so far as we are thinking of going to him in the hope of finally getting a diagnosis… I would also like to say I am really sorry for all your losses and hope you get some answers soon! I have never even reached that ‘stage’ yet as all my transfers end in BFN and have been unexplained for 3 years now… my latest (4th) transfer just failed this weekend so I am in a bit of a mental breakdown and trying to gather my thoughts enough to make another plan. I also live in Europe (Cyprus) so travelling to the U.S. would not be an option so I am interested to see how the communication works out in these cases if you did indeed go ahead with Dr Braverman and would be so kind as to share your experience.
    Wishing you all the best!

    • So sorry to hear about your struggles, I can only imagined how heartbroken you feel. I’ll blog about my results from Braverman soon, but if you’d like, you can contact me by email so we can discuss more details. You can write me on recurrentlyunlucky at gmail dot com. Hope everything works out for you!!
