Has anyone been through a missed miscarriage and got normal chromosome testing results back? Found out today that we were expecting a normal male embryo ☹️. I’m just at a complete loss. Heard and saw the heartbeat at 7 weeks and 10 days later no more heartbeat. Have had all normal bloodwork/HSG/seems like every test available.

This happened to me; I lost the pregnancy at almost 15 weeks. It was our first IUI, everything looked great, and then at 11 weeks they found a cystic hygroma so we went through very thorough testing - all came back clear. No genetic issues. The doctors say it could’ve been a physical abnormality (hole in the heart, etc), it’s just hard to know

I had this exact situation. It is unclear why I miscarried. But my doctor did say that just because the embryo did not have one of the chromosomal issues they can test for, that doesn’t mean it was actually normal. There are other things that could have been wrong that they can’t test for.

Have had this happen to me. The chromosome testing is really high level (are there 46? Are there monosomies or trisomies?) but there are smaller chromosomal issues that won't get picked up like translocations, microdeletions, single gene issues, etc.

We lost our baby at 16 weeks (no heartbeat) despite being a genetically tested embryo, NIPT normal, and tissue testing confirming normal karyotype and microarray. The only hypothesis that was offered was potential uterine shape challenges (turns out I had a slightly arcuate uterus, which was recontoured during a surgery post-loss). But the doctors all just said it happens - rarely, but it happens - and it shouldn’t affect our path forward.

Happened to me too. Solidarity

To add a bit of context, this was from our first IUI, HCG and progesterone levels both normal/above normal
