Advice for trying to concieve after miscarriage

I am trying to conceive again. Hi my name is Dawna it took me 8 yrs. To get pregnant and then 9 months ago while I was only 8 weeks pregnant I lost the baby July 28th 2013. It was so sad. It was on my husband's birthday. I am 27 yrs. Old and my husband is 48. I have a 21 yr. Old step son. Is there any advice anyone can give me on what to eat and juices to help or something we were blessed and instead of going to the doctor we got pregnant naturally before I lost the baby. The doctor had to put me on Wellbutrin for depression. Then he told me now I may have estrogen dominance where my body produces too much estrogen I pray he is wrong. I have been doing my best to eat healthy now. When I lost my baby I didn't know but my husband had a different blood type than me. He is A+ and I am 0- they said that my body could have thought the baby was not supposed to be there cause of it like a virus or something so my body got rid of the babythat was hard for me. They gave me a Rogham shot and told me I should be safe now. But along with the doctor telling me I may have estrogen dominance he said my progesterone levels may be messed up too. I don't want to have to see a fertility specialist over all this. I was hoping and praying to get pregnant naturally again. Any suggestions or solutions to help me out would be much appreciated I need all the advice I can get. Is there anything else I can try to help with estrogen dominance or progesterone problems without seeing a doctor I am doing all I can right now to avoid seeing a fertility doctor. I really wanted to hopefully get pregnant naturally again. How long is normal to wait before you have to see a fertility doctor? My gynecologist said after I had my miscarriage I shouldn't have another miscarriage now and that I should be able to get pregnant easier now. Am I stressing tomuch or should I be concerned? Any tips or advice would be much greatly appreciated.

I totally understand your need for doing it naturally.  I am exactly the same way.  I will never take drugs because I hate my body when I alter it in an unnatural way.  However, I would recommend seeing a specialist if your doc thinks you have all these problems (you may not, he could just be an ass trying to scare you).  After you see a specialist, you'll know EXACTLY what is wrong with your body.  You don't have to take any of the drugs they want you to take, but you can do your own research or see a natropath or osteopath or come back onto this forum and ask for natural ways to deal with those problems (I know there are women on here that do things naturally and are able to conceive, even with really tough problems).

I would be careful about treating yourself right now because you are unsure of what is wrong, and you don't want to create other wonky problems.

And they are right, just because you have a miscarriage, doesn't mean you'll have another.

You will still need that shot though, that's unavoidable with conflicting blood types.
