Genetic Results from the D&C

XP from my other blog

We had the tissues tested after the D&C. I really wanted to find out if it was a just a fluke of nature. I also knew there was a possiblility that they would not be able to determine the cause though.

So, I met with the doctor today and he said the miscarriage was due to Trisomy 22 (complete). Although rare, it is the second highest chromosone reason for miscarriage. He also said that this in deed was a fluke of nature and the chance of it happening again is less than 1%

Here is a site I found using a Google Search (however, most of what I found seem to be just a C&P from other sites)

I know this is going to sound STRANGE - but, I was actually HAPPY that they found something. Of course I would never WANT this to happen, and I am of course sad that it DID happen. But knowing that it was just a fluke of nature thing really makes me feel better about any other pregnancy in the future.

Plus it make me feel like it was not something I did that caused my m/c (drinking in the 2ww, painting, lifting a semi-heavy box, etc)

The doctor also said that he knew the sex - but I decided I did not want to know.

So, it feels good to have an answer.

I am so sorry that you had to go through what you did. I know it doesn't make it better, but hopefully you can have some peace knowing it wasn't anything you did.

I'm so glad you have an answer. I know it makes you feel better and now you can get rid of that guilt that you did anything wrong.
