Jenica I am sorry for your loss. There isn't a whole lot anyone can truely do to avoid a miscarriage other than the generic you hear from everyone. Don't smoke, don't do drugs, be at a healthy bmi, healthy lifestyle, etc... I would suggest that you be on a prenatal if you are not (or if you are taking a multivitamin make sure you are taking folic acid since there isn't always enough in regular vitamins). I would also recommend getting a check up by your doctor if you haven't. Sometimes they can run basic tests that may be useful in the ttc process. They may do a few extra tests due to age too I am not sure but they will once you get pregnant again as well. I wish you the best of luck on your journey.
