Try again: Abnormal chromosome patterns are seen in many of the MC's studied, so this would not be unexpected. If both you and spouse have been karyotyped & normal, you are not carrying a translocation that would doom you both to expect MC's.Consult the clinical genetics department at Toronto Children's if you have not already and see if their is anything more they recommend. ...Read more

Yes: Don't give up, get followed by infertility/hi risk obstetrics doctor, at one point a medical geneticist input might be needed. For genetic / chromosomal disorders PIGD, Pre- Implantation Genetic Diagnosis can be resorted to so as not implant an embryo with a known major genetic/chromosomal disease, good luck ...Read more

I am 18 weeks. Fetus has not stopped excessively moving for over a week. It seems to get worse when I move positions. Can this result in stillbirth?

I am 18 weeks. Fetus has not stopped excessively moving for over a week. It seems to get worse when I move positions. Can this result in stillbirth?

Baby moving...: After 17 weeks of pregnancy it is usually when you become aware of your baby moving inside of you. They can move a lot and it is not a sign of miscarriage or stillbirth. The opposite is true. Once you start feeling the baby moving, if it stops moving that is a dangerous sign. If you experience vaginal bleeding, severe pain, then those are also red flags and you should see OB. ...Read more

If parents' karyotyping is normal, what are the chances for recurrent early miscarriages due to chromosomal problems in fetus? Pls answer as clearly

Ans: There is always a possibility of a mutation. This cannot be predicted. However just because on the outside you are normal does not mean you do not carry a recessive gene. You and your partner can have gene mapping. But again remember thecwayvthe chromosomes line up is chance. But if you have abnormal genes you can put a percentage on the chance of that gene showing up. Again all a toss of the coin ...Read more

3 miscarriages. Fetal karyotyping normal. D&c revealed uterine septum, but have healthy 7 y/0. What tests should i/we have next? $ is an issue.

3 miscarriages. Fetal karyotyping normal. D&c revealed uterine septum, but have healthy 7 y/0. What tests should i/we have next? $ is an issue.

Depends on you: To some extent you already have a good deal of information.You know that you can carry a baby to a healthy delivery. You also know you have a structural uterine defect that may cause a miscarriage. I'm not aware if they could reduce or remove your septum, or if such surgery would help.That may be a reasonable thing to discuss with your doc. ...Read more

No need extra tests: No need for further tests before pregnancy since the parents chromosomes are normal. For early piece of mind you can consider early non-invasive genetic screening in early pregnancy. ...Read more
