Pregnancy After Miscarriage

After a pregnancy loss, the thought of getting pregnant again can for some be a joyous experience, while for others it can lead to feelings of apprehension and anxiety. Although a little nervousness is understandable, it's also important that you are able to enjoy in your pregnancy.  The good news for women who have lost a previous pregnancy is that most women who have experienced a pregnancy loss go on to have perfectly healthy and normal pregnancies the second time around.  If you have experienced multiple pregnancy losses, then you may want to consult a fertility specialist as this is the sign that something is wrong.  Visiting a fertility doctor may just help you with your problem and allow you to carry a pregnancy to full term.  If you are pregnant after a miscarriage or stillbirth then you may be feeling uneasy and nervous about losing this pregnancy too.  Renting a home heart beat monitor can help to provide you with the relief you need since you can listen to the baby's heart beat any time you want.  

Pregnant Again

If you have experienced a miscarriage and are considering getting pregnant, you may find it helpful to read up on when it is safe (both emotionally and physically) to do so.  How long should you wait before getting pregnant again?  What if you have a miscarriage again?  Talk to your doctor about all of your concerns and wait until you get the go ahead before getting pregnant again.  There are different theories about the best time to get pregnant again.  Some doctors will say it is best to wait three months after a miscarriage before getting pregnant again while other doctors will say you best chances are to try again after only one month.  Read more about these different theories.  

Emotional And Medical Support

Creating support networks can help you cope with pregnancy after a miscarriage. Talking about your emotions with others who've been there can help you deal with pregnancy loss and help you prepare for pregnancy again.  It's good to know that most women who have experienced a miscarriage have gone on to have healthy and happy pregnancies without any further problems.  If you are one of the few women who suffer from multiple miscarriages you should consult with a fertility specialist as there may be something wrong.
