  • THis is a tough questions. After my miscarriage my doc said that there usually is not a higher chance of miscarriage. Really it is the same chance with every pregancy. My advice, be thankful and happy. Try not to stress. MAny women have had healthy pregnacies after a m/c! Good luck!

  • I'm pregnant about to have my second child. I miscarried at 12 weeks back in February and got pregnant again mid March. Don't worry too much!

  • I don't know how true it is, but I've recently found out that taking omegas decreases the chance of a miscarriage. I definately believe in Red Raspberry. I believe it saved my last pregnancy, I had bleeding that lasted off and on from 6-8 weeks, from the placenta peeling off a little bit, I starting taking red raspberry at 8 weeks, which is a tonic for the placenta,and the bleeding stopped. I went on to have an amazing, beautiful, gifted little girl. Good luck.

  • I had a miscarriage when I was 20, so I can relate to how you must feel.. It took me a long time to get back to myself, and I still struggle with it occasionally. My daughter was born not quite two years later. My pregnancy with her was as good as you get (hardly any morning sickness, perfectly healthy), and she is amazing.. She's smart & healthy & beautiful.. and going to be a big sister in July! I truly hope you the best, good luck! If you are worried about it, talk to your doctor. Mine prescribed me prometrium, which I'm pretty sure was to ensure that my hormone levels stayed up.

  • Insist they check your hormone levels, If progesterone is too low, then insist they give you a progesterone shot.
