Some normal rxns: It can be very painful to deal with a miscarriage. Often the woman is very apprehensive about losing her next pregnancy to miscarriage. If you have worked through the loss, talk with your medical providers about becoming pregnant again. Usually, once you get past the fetal age that you lost your previous baby, the intense anxiety fades and you can focus on a healthy pregnancy & a new baby.
