Very sorry to hear that Cazzybabs.

No tips, I'm afraid. Take care of yourself.

Oh poor you. I'm so sorry. I had 3 - one after another. Then DS who is now 18 mo. And I'm 14 weeks pregnant with number 2. I cut out caffeine completely while ttc & pregnant. Cut down on alcohol while ttc - obviously completely cut out while pregnant. For DS, I was on baby aspirin, and am on that again now. I took vitamins - pre-natal ones rather than multivits. Lots of fruit and veg. I lost weight - boy, did I need to! I lost 1 1/2 stone and was just in the overweight band when I conceived. And I had a LOT of people praying for me

Thanks for your stories - it is good to know I am not alone and also not being unrealistic in hoping I will have another baby. I jus keep thinking this time a week ago I was pregnant, although in actual fact I doubt I was. Anyway when I get home, I am going to see my GP and talk about anything I can do such as taking asprin. I am curretnly at my parents with dd2 as was supposed to be going on holiday to see some friends but I couldn't do send dh and dd1.

huge hugs to you cazzy. I had 2mcs before concieving DS, then had a missed mc before concieveing DD and am now 38wks with no.3. I have an online friend[who does use this site] who I know had 4 or 5mcs within a year or so but is now 34wks with her ds2b.

Hi Cazzybabs
I too had a miscarriage on Christmas day at 11 weeks. We were away over Christmas so I'm just off to Drs today, am still bleeding slightly. Anyway, am hoping to get some advice re future pregnacies. But I really dont want to get too obsessed with diet etc, I already have 2 boys and other than cutting out alcohol etc, didn't really change my lifestyle at all before.
Hope things improve for you.

Cazzybabs - so sorry to hear this. Hope it goes well at the docs, let us know how you get on.

I too have had 2 mcs this year and already have 2 dds - not sure what the future holds for me, but can tell you that my friend had 2 ds's then 4 mcs and then ds3 - does that give you hope? I hope so!

So sorry to hear about your miscarriages. I've only had the one but that alone was heartbreaking at the time. Thankfully I now have a wonderful 11mth old boy.

I can heartily recommend acupuncture. While it's somewhat intangible, I used it asap after the miscarriage and my DS was conceived 4mths later. Incidentally, I kept having it and had a wonderful pregnancy, labour and birth. Oh and DS is pretty fab too! I suppose I'll never know if I'd have been that lucky without it...

You can find out more at

While Jani may be in completely the wrong locations for you, the site does have interesting info about acupuncture and fertility and may even help you to find someone nearby if you're interested.

Hope this helps!
