  • im sorry for your previous losses, but you cant play god. if you drink, smoke or do drugs, STOP! Take your prenatal vitamins and see a doctor regularly. Good luck to you

  • There really isn't much you can do in preventing a miscarriage. If it happens, it happens. BUT you should take care of yourself and your body! Eat healthy, drink healthy things, don't smoke/do drugs/drink, etc. :) I am sorry for your previous losses. I wish you a healthy pregnancy!

    There is an herbal tincture called "Welcome Womb" that is suppose to help, so just type it in and look it up if you want. A lot of midwives use it.

    Have you had your blood checked for any sort of blood disorders or even progesterone levels checked? So you have an idea, if there is any, for all the miscarriages?

  • If your miscarriages are due to an incompetent cervix the doctor can use stitches to help prevent the cervix from opening prematurly. After 3 miscarraiges, i would think the doctor would do some tests to see why you are having these miscarriages. It could be a genetic disorder. I hope that you are sucessful with this pregnancy.
