I'm sorry to hear about your mc, honey. I know those are just rough facts, but I've been through one myself years ago and know how important it is to know about what could cause it. During pregnancy, your body supplies hormones and nutrients to your developing fetus. This helps your fetus develop normally during your pregnancy. Most first trimester miscarriages happen because the fetus doesn’t develop normally. There are different factors that can cause this.
Firstly, genetic or chromosome issues. About 50 percent of miscarriages are due to chromosome issues. Errors occur randomly when the cells of the embryo divide, or are due to a damaged egg or sperm cell. Problems with the placenta can also lead to a miscarriage.
These include: intrauterine fetal demise: The embryo forms but stops developing before you see or feel symptoms of pregnancy loss.
blighted ovum: No embryo forms at all.
molar pregnancy: Molar pregnancies are rare. There is usually an abnormal placenta growth, but since both sets of chromosomes come from the father, no fetal development occurs.
partial molar pregnancy: This happens when the mother’s chromosomes remains, but the father has also provided two sets of chromosomes. This causes placenta abnormalities and an abnormal fetus.
External health conditions, lifestyle habits, and underlying conditions may also interfere with the fetus’ development, especially in the second trimester. Exercise and sexual intercourse do not cause miscarriages. Working won’t affect the fetus either unless you’re exposed to harmful chemicals or radiation.
Conditions that can interfere with a fetus’ development include: poor diet, or malnutrition. advanced maternal age. untreated thyroid disease. uncontrolled diabetes. infections. trauma. obesity. problems with the cervix. abnormally shaped womb. severe high blood pressure. food poisoning. certain medications.
A mc leaves a huge scar but I hope time will heal..Stay strong and be kind to yourself.
