I have 2 children from a previous marriage, my current husband and I can conceive just can't maintain the pregnancy I had 3 losses with my current husband we have no kids together and 1 lost from my previous marriage, I made it up to 7 mnths pregnant with my current husband and ended in stillbirth with bleeding from 12 weeks, my question is how can I have 4 loses after having 2 kids full term no complications. My loses 17 wks water brakes, 29 wks still birth, 8 wks miscarriage and my last lost to soon to even know how far along I was, I had all blood wrk done from blood clotting, lupus, chromosome and everything came back fine, I had all heartbeats except for the last one, what's my chances of having a live baby?

There are immunologic explanations for these type of cases. One of them is the development of anti HLA antibodies against your partners genetics, these are formed in the latter stages sometimes of a successful pregnancy. You clearly need a full immunology workup. I would be happy to assist you, please call my office and they will be happy to schedule a consultaton for you.

If this is the case for me is it treatable? What if no cause is found would you still suggest a treatment plan as precaution?

Yes this is very treatable, I usually find the most likely reason however and treatment is never a "guess" .
