Thinking about another baby after very recent miscarriage

I had a very recent miscarriage at 10 weeks and I feel kind of nervous thinking about getting pregnant again. This is my second miscarriage. Background includes, twins, then a singleton, then miscarriage (7.5 weeks), another singleton, and now a miscarriage again (10 weeks). I am completely grateful for the children I have, but do hope to have another baby. I'm older (upper 30s) and know that my window of opportunity is closing. I really hope and pray to never have to lose another baby again. I'm nervous. The two miscarriages I had seemed to be unrelated regarding the cause of miscarriage. The first one was a blighted ovum. With my recent one, the baby had a strong heartbeat and was developing fine. Then the heart rate slowed down considerably and the baby hadn't grown. I don't know what I'm looking for exactly. It might be helpful to hear from women who have had more than one miscarriage and how they were able to overcome some of the fears. Thanks.

Hugs, mama!

I can't speak to your exact question/scenario, but I have also suffered a recent miscarriage & am looking to TTC again soon. (And I'm also in the "upper" 30s set so wanting to do so sooner rather than later...)

I am fearful enough after only one m/c, so I am sure that it is sadly compounded after multiple losses. But I also am not willing to give up. From all that I have read, 2 m/c are not uncommon & it sounds like many women go on to have babies after two. I hope that is the case for you & I am sure that someone will chime in to allay your fears a bit.

Good luck!

Mama to my little busy bee.
