Can be normal: This can be normal. I know it is tough not to worry but just because you had one miscarriage in the past does not mean it is going to happen again. Most miscarriages are from pregnancies that are not forming correctly. Not much you can do to prevent this and also not a lot you can do to cause it. The best thing you can do is to try not to worry.
