Did you know that a whopping 20% of pregnancies end in a miscarriage? That number is a rough estimate from doctors, some miscarriages happen early and the female is not aware she is having a miscarriage; rather, she believes she has started her period.

What a worrisome time for mothers. You have previously miscarried and now you are pregnant again. You are worried you will do something wrong. You are concerned baby will not make it just as his or her sibling. You fear every move he or she makes or does not make. Rest easy- eliminating the stress could just be key number one of keeping baby holding on. The higher your stress level, the higher your blood pressure, the more stress baby is under. Relax, deep breaths, stay calm.
Less than 5% of women have consecutive miscarriages. Less than 1% have three or more consecutively. A miscarriage is a spontaneous loss of a fetus prior to week 20 that is usually caused because baby is not developing properly.
If you have had multiple miscarriages and would like to try to conceive again you may need to speak with your doctor about running tests to find out what is causing the multiple miscarriages prior to attempting to conceive. This can be something as simple as blood work or an ultrasound.
If this is your first miscarriage and you would like to try again, first step back and take a few deep breaths, you need to take care of your body before you can conceive again. Have you had a D & C (dilation and curettage) from your previous miscarriage? Have you started a new prenatal vitamin to get yourself ready for baby? Are you healthy physically and emotionally? If you are still trying to cope with your loss, it is okay to wait a little longer to try to conceive again. You cannot push yourself into something you are not emotionally ready for.
However, if it is that time again, you will know. Your mind and heart will be open to the thought of another child. Once pregnant it is not a good idea to stress over everything. The cause of most miscarriages is due to abnormalities in the child, not something the parent has done. This is uncontrollable to anyone else. 85% of women will continue on with healthy pregnancies after a miscarriage. With multiple miscarriages 75% of women will do the same with healthy pregnancies.
Allowing yourself to become stressed over this baby can in turn put baby under pressure. This can cause many more issues with you and the baby.
Try to allow yourself to enjoy the fact that you are pregnant again. Watch for the normal signs; sore breasts, nausea, exhaustion, gassy feelings and eventually that first kick. Once you have hit your second trimester you are almost in the clear. It is very rare for a miscarriage to occur in the second and third trimesters.
After your loss your doctor may want to perform a dilation and curettage, after this procedure and you have had time to heal emotionally and physically. Weigh your options and discuss them with your doctor. Most medical professionals will encourage a mother to wait at least 3 months before trying to conceive again. If your body has recently undergone the stress of a miscarriage then becoming pregnant shortly after can raise your risk of another miscarriage. Though this is rare, it does happen.
