I feel for you! I went through the same thing and it was hard to be exitced with the next pregnancy. You worry all the time, I know!Your doctor will probably give you the same advice he/she would give to any pregnant patient because your body is over and done with that miscarriage. He/she may check things like thyroid hormone levels (TSH) or other hormones that can effect pregnancy (like progesterone).Try and relax. Don't worry so much and enjoy the life growing inside of you! Congrats and best of luck!!! References : 16 weeks pregnant with baby #2 after miscarriage. Was this answer helpful?
