Having 5 kids with previous 2 miscarriage are always great risk for next pregnancy. Multipara women are always associated with recurrent miscarriage.
Plan next pregnancy with some initial investigations like USG lower abdomen, Test for chromosomal abnormality, TORCH profile, Thyroid profile, PPBS and Progesterone level. Also take Folic acid & Vit-E supplements for at least 3 months in preconception period. Consult with your gynecologist.
Try to avoid following things (preferably in the 1st trimester):
1) Any type of sexual activity/intercourse
2) Long journey/stepping uneven surface/heavy work
3) High heel shoe (risk of fall on ground with miscarriage)
4) Unprescribed/unsafe medication to avoid defective organogenesis.
Be well and wish for successful motherhood once again.
