Detailed Answer:
I can understand your anxiety and fear, dear.
But one miscarriage does not mean that you will again miscarry.
That stress will create problems.
You should take good progesterone and hormonal support once the pregnancy is confirmed.
In which city do you reside ?
Avoid travelling for long distances, intercourse, lifting heavy weights, stress, and dont consume any medications without consulting your OB - GYN first.
