Hi we stopped trying for our 3de child. I had 2 miscarriages in a row and I'm scared o try again. My husband and I are both rh- rh+ . My Gp advised us in 1993 when my first son was born not to think of having more children than 2. He said it gets more dangerous for my life not even thinking of all the miscarriages I had. Is there a way is there a chance or must i just except it. Please could you give me advice.

If you are Rhesus negative and your husband is positive, this can cause problems to the fetus during a pregnancy. However, it does not often cause miscarriages, more usually problems in later pregnancy. Before you give up, I think you should ascertain what the cause of the miscarriages was and, if you do not know, then have tests to determine the possible cause.
