Hi Bettyboo, I think you'll find quite a few experience contributors here and hopefully some have been through your experience and can offer real tips for you.
I would say (as editor of the site) that whilst it's very hard not to worry – you're probably still dealing with the tragic discovery at your scan in Feb – but miscarriage is rarely a sign that future pregnancies will be problematic.
I really hope for you that you will be able to relax and enjoy some of the real pleasures of pregnancy when you get through that scan, but it's frustrating that you have to wait.
This early in your pregnancy there isn't really a lot midwives etc can do anyway, which is why that first scan is not until 12-14 weeks.
You could buy a doppler (where you can hear your baby through your tummy), but there might be a danger that you become too preoccupied with listening to the beat and, if the baby just decides to lay in a way that makes this sound faint, that you will put yourself through unneccessary worry.
I'm sure you'll be fine and I know the lovely ThinkBaby members will give you much support.
Do keep in touch and let us know how you're doing.
