Maternal Cell Contamination

 I am so upset!  As if we have not had enough bad luck already, the doctor said there was Maternal cell contamination of the Karyotype results on the miscarriage.  So we are left with no answers whatsoever!! Normal female XX which the doctor said was probably from my cells because it matched my blood :( This is the worst possible outcome. Now we don't know whether it was the NK cells in my uterus that caused the miscarriage or if there was a chromosome issue :( No answers. Where do we go from here? I feel so empty, like I went through another miscarriage and there is no evidence that this pregnancy ever even happened and that George ever existed :(


  1. Yuck yuck yuck. So sorry for this news. Perhaps they can give you a big discount on future testing for messing this up so big? I would demand it. Don't give up-- you have come so far! Your baby is around the corner!

  2. thanks for the encouraging words. They say there is a less than 1% chance of this happening but I know someone who had the same thing happen also.
