In brief: Stability first

Discuss your medical concerns with your pcp.
Having a baby causes a profound shift in a person's life. It requires a huge, life-long commitment. Being a parent can add to life satisfaction over the long-term, but it is one of the most challenging endeavors that people ever take on. Your question suggests that therapy might allow you to get some increased clarity about your values and goals.

In brief: Therapy first

Whether a medical or spontaneous abortion, at whatever week gestation, we all grieve at the loss of a fetus.
Allow yourself time & therapy to quit beating yourself up. You did what you thought was right at the time. An infant or child cannot fulfill a parent's emotional needs & cannot replace another child. I agree, re-examine your readiness & reasons to parent.
