Well I suppose I belong here now. I found out last week that our baby died at 13.2 weeks. I had the d&c yesterday and have already pretty much stopped bleeding. So I am waiting for my first period. Does it come a month from now like it usually would or will it came sooner?

Although the baby we lost was a surprise, we decided we are ready and really want a baby, so we will wait a few months and start trying. I'm terrified that this will happen again. I don't know how I could stand losing another child.

What are some good ways to start preparing for being pregnant to help prevent miscarriage? and what should I expect that may be different this time around (period wise or anything else)?

Glad you found us. It took me 8 weeks to get my first af after m/c. It was heavier but that is about it. My 2nd af was kinda wacky too. So sorry about your loss. Good luck on your TTC journey. Crystal
