Did he fully understand the pregnancy? I know that my 2 year old, while she understands for the most part.. doesn't fully understand and wouldn't if I explained a miscarriage. I am also 37 weeks pregnant and showing.
I think what you say depends on how much he actually understood. Don't say anything until you are ready, and if he doesn't seem to comprehend then there really isn't much explaining to do. I don't think a two year old fully understands pregnancy, even to term, so a miscarriage would be really hard to explain.
I am sorry for your loss.
