I’ve just been reading an article on the Huggies website about getting pregnant after miscarriage and came across something that I found rather interesting.
Once the heartbeat shows on ultrasound, the chance of miscarriage is believed to just 10%. Once your doctor can hear the heartbeat with a Doppler, usually at around 11 – 12 weeks, the chances of miscarriage reduce to around 5%
Now, back in one of my previous posts, Not the news I wanted…, I talked about the fact that my partner and I lost our second pregnancy this year. Our baby passed at 7 weeks, 4 days.
The reason this quote got to me a little bit was that 2 days prior to losing our baby, we had gone for an ultrasound and baby was happy and healthy and had a great heartbeat. That was dated as 7 weeks, 2 days.
That was our second miscarriage this year and we are trying not to have it happen again. It shook us both the first time we miscarried and then the second time was horrendous. It makes me wonder what my body is trying to tell me.
I hate being part of a percentage.
I wanted answers but none were given other then sometimes it just happens.
For Christmas this year, I have asked my family for a Biomedix session/Complete Health Analysis at the Purple House, Tasmania.
A Biomedx/Complete Health analysis will do just that! It includes around 26 chemical tests on your urine (which is filtered blood) and saliva (which reflects your lymph system). It includes checking your resting and standing blood pressures, your blood sugar levels and many other clinical tests.
I have wanted to have one of these sessions for a while but the cost is too much for me so I thought, with Christmas round the corner, that I could see about getting this instead.
When I get it done (hopefully…) I will let you guys know.
Until then, I will continue trying to improve my health one step at a time…
