Pathology report ~ a question

(7 posts)(3 voices)
  1. Our report is in, our baby had Trisomy 22, which is fatal, the baby was a boy. When the nurse said boy, I gasped out loud and almost passed out. Knowing the gender is a double edged sword, we wanted to know the gender, but then when we found out it made the loss hurt like it just happened all over again.

    We lost this pg at 9 w missed m/c (d&c). HB was seen twice then stopped in the 8th week.

    Has anyone ever heard of Trisomy 22? Is it age related (I am almost 41 and these eggs just are not good clearly). Or is this more sperm related? We started our TTC journey with MFI, now I think its more me.

    We had a loss last year in the 15h week for Full Trisomy 21 (also a boy). This is crushing.

    TIA

  2. Miscarriage mentioned

    From what I can tell, it does seem to be a random abnormal division of cells and not something that is likely to re-occur. It seems to be a common cause of early miscarriages. You might try this link:

  3. Thank you hawkshawgirl!

    T22 does seem like a random event but paired with the Trisomy 21 we had last year it seems like I must have really bad eggs for this to happen twice now.

    I am sorry you are going through this

  5. I am sorry you are going through this

    Thanks, once I could rationalize as a 'fluke' bc of my age, but twice...it's like a kick in gut. Also, learning gender makes it even more sad.

  6. Could you try IVF with PGD? Has your RE mentioned if it could be a male thing? I know there are certain problems that can be passed through male genes what if you did PGD to pick a female embryo? Would that increase your odds? I am so very very sorry you are going through this.

  7. anabela - Thank you. We can't afford anymore IVF (this pg was natural) also PGD does not pick up T22 but it can pick up sex and therefore we might not transfer boys. We did our last IVF in January (BFN) and my DH would not even consider IVF again. My DH has a call into his urologist to see if this pg was good news that we can get pg on our own (DH had bilateral varicocele surgery last July) or if this is bad news and my age finally caught up to us for good.

    We have been doing ART cycles on and off for 3 1/2 yrs, and are out of money and maxed out ins for IF coverage. The 3 times I have been pg while IF/ART/IVF have been natural or on break cycles, I sometimes wonder what that means since the pgs don't ever work out and all of our medicated cycles and IVF cycles have been BFN?
