(((hugs))) I am so sorry for your previous loss. When you've had one loss, it's hard to go into another pregnancy without expecting every little thing means something is going wrong. You can really drive yourself crazy with worry!

I'm not certain what you are asking. If you're asking how to avoid another miscarriage, unfortunately, there is usually nothing you can do. The one thing you can try is to ask your doctor to check your progesterone. If it's lower than 15, you can go on a Progesterone supplement. Sometimes our bodies just don't produce enough progesterone to sustain a pregnancy, and supplementing can help get through it. It's somewhat controversial, though...there are doctors out there who don't think it makes a difference. I have taken it with all of my pregnancies except for my first, which was a loss.

As for how to make it through emotionally...that is different for everyone. Posting here, or on WebMD's Pregnancy After Loss (PAL) board, for support, can be a great resource. On PAL, you'll find many women who have also gone through a loss, and know how you are feeling (as much as one person can "know" how another is feeling). It is a great resource, and the ladies who post there are very supportive. Not that the ladies who post on this one aren't, because they are. :D But sometimes it DOES help to talk to others who are feeling similarly to how you're feeling.

When are you due? And how far along were you when you lost your first pregnancy? Getting past that point in your pregnancy can help you feel better, too. Of course, the only thing that can help that is time...but getting support from others who have been there (or ARE there!) can help a lot.

Sending you lots of (((hugs))). I'm so sorry for your loss.
