    I can't seem to carry full term

    Howdy,
    I cannot carry a baby full term and I have no idea why!! (Hoping to speak to some professionals soon) I've had two miscarriages at 17 weeks. One at 5 weeks, and had my son in may at 23 weeks (luckily he survived!!!!!!)
    I was wondering if there are any other women who can't carry full term? I feel alone, I get jealous seeing babies born so healthy and full term.

    I had a miscarriage recently, but it was my first... Apparently miscarriages with a first pregnancy is common... You aren't alone.

    So sorry for your loss Snny and Crushton.

    Crushton, what has your doctor said about your miscarriages? Has he/she recommended total bed rest throughout your pregnancy in future?

    My doctor hasn't said anything, when I was pregnant with my son I had very low blood pressure and I was working on my feet all day he signed me off work for a week that was it. Next pregnancy if I ever have one I will be on complete bed rest

    Of course there are. Sometimes it has to do with factors pertaining to one's blood coagulation mechanisms (the body creates blood clots that result in miscarriages). Consulting a medical specialist is indeed the best way to figure this out.

    There are also plenty of couples who can't conceive to begin with, and have no children at all... Or people who face the challenge of raising a disabled child. I realise that it must be very frustrating when comparing yourself to the people who have no such problem and of course miscarriages are traumatic and stressful! Comparing yourself to others is pointless through. Everyone gets dealt some kind of difficult card sooner or later. Such is the nature of human life. Hope everything turns out fine for you in the end. Good luck.

    I canít carry children at all except for one. My first. All my others miscarried. 3 at 6 weeks and one at 16 weeks . My son who survived has autism. He is 20 now.

    You are definitely not alone.

    I am too old to have kids now. I am 4 years post menopause.

    I can't carry either.

    I was able to have my two children only with complete bed rest. My kidneys start to fail for some reason and I go into very early labor. I almost had my son at 22 weeks. He ended up being born at 37 weeks, which was pretty good. Same with my daughter. I've also lost two babies.

    After I had my second child my doctor basically told me "no more". I did become pregnant again after that and lost that baby. So I've concluded that I am very blessed and I am happy that I have two.

    Complete bed rest may be the answer for you. Best wishes.

    I had three miscarriages after a healthy, full-term pregnancy. The likely cause was low progesterone levels. There are many reasons why one might miscarry. Talk to a professional. Good luck and congrats on your beautiful son!

    I had at least one miscarriage. Then my doctor read a study about baby aspirin and put me on that until I was half way through the pregnancy term. In the end that baby was 10 days late and almost 10 lbs!

    Ask your doc about going on baby aspirin
