As I wrote last Tuesday, the doctors thought I was having another miscarriage, but they were not 100% sure.
On Thursday, I went to my doctor’s office and she confirmed that I was having a miscarriage. This time around, there is an explanation: the embryo was not well formed. She showed me the details on the ultrasound pictures. I was sad, devastated even…. But it seems I am making peace with it.
After a long conversation with her, we decided that, due to my age and Hubby’s age, a geneticist consultation is in order. She (honestly) thinks there is nothing wrong with any of us, especially since both of my miscarriages have nothing in common (the first one was at 16 weeks and the second was at 6 weeks). But we will give it a shot and this consultation will sure give us some peace of mind.
One particular thing about Brazilian Health System, we do not need referral to go to a specific doctor. We can just call and make an appointment to see that specific doctor. If the doctor you want is covered by your insurance, perfect. If not, you can pay full price for the consultation.
Based on this premise, I will schedule an appointment with another OB to see another opinion after the geneticist consultation. My nutritionist recommended the doctor who took care of her two pregnancies. She had a miscarriage on her first pregnancy, and on her second one, she was pregnant with twins and she miscarried one. And I Google the doctor´s name and he is a BIG name in high risk pregnancies down here in Bra**zil. So, we will see.
