Hi Katherine, You can't say for sure that it was your age. The hosp I was at say they have at least two women who come in for the d&c everyday. I had mc at 25 so anyone can have one. There are lots of things you can do. I took pregnacare before I conceived my daughter and it made my feel reassured that she was getting the vitamins she needed,etc. Tried to eat more oily fish and took omega tablets also from the pregnacare range in the third trimester. You may not be thinking or trying again or wish to wait a little longer but just to let you know incase you are interested the most ferrtile period for women is around two weeks after first day of your period so there are just two to three days for conception to really take place each month.
My hubbie and I were just letting nature take it's course and then I was preg in June and mc in Aug/Sept. Then I was sort of really wanting a baby like never before. I was worried that I couldn't carry a baby & feelings like this were going on. If you need any advice just ask.
Thank you for your story Emma. Very uplifting to read. I also lost at 11 weeks. I'm waiting a few years before no2 as I want my daughter to be past the terrible two's stage! Also want to enjoy watching her growing up a bit. Are you having anymore or is 3 enough.sx
