I am going in for my first midwife appointment since my miscarriage and I'd like to know what type of questions and tests to ask for.
She is a CNM that works in a hospital so she can order any tests that I want/need.
Just a bit of history, I've had 2 pregnancies, one was uneventful and complication free and ended in our son, the other ended this month at 5.5 weeks. I realize this was probably "just one of those things" and there were chromosomal problems but still...
I also know that there is (most likely) nothing she can tell us about the miscarriage. What I would like to know is what to do about future pregnancies. Should I get more advanced and even earlier prenantal care. What kind of testing should I get through the next pregnancy. I've always been hands off and pretty intervention free but after the miscarriage I'm a bit gunshy and don't want to leave anything to chance. I also don't know how I'd relax until week 14 when we hear a heartbeat (that is when we heard ds's).
Any advice on your feelings, what you've done, what you think should be done would be appriecated
