  • Check your progesterone levels and make your OB aware of the family history. Take a good mutivitamin that contains Selenium.

  • Well when M/C has hit somewhere close to home it is hard not to worry about it. The only thing I can say is TRY not to stress what will be will be. Enjoy that you are pregnant. Once you hear the heart beat for the first time you will feel some relief. It sucks I know just try to focus on that most of the time there is a happy ending of a baby!

  • All you can do is try to calm yourself down. You can't do anything but take care of yourself. They do happen, often at no fault of the mom. The only thing you can really watch for is cramping and heavy bleeding. If it's going to happen, it's going to happen. It can't be stopped. Good luck, mama, you'll be over the first trimester hump before you know it! =)
