a dad to be but never happened

A shocking bp of 180/100 for the first time. It is our scheduled pre-natal check-up on Sept23. Her expected delivery supposedly is on October 10, 2010. As a new parent, excitement is undeniable. Very well cared, check-ups, foods and etc with all the preparations..The baby still kicked 3x, but sad to say, our first child who is a baby boy died in her mother's womb before my wife entered to the ultrasound room of the hospital. My wife did not feel something wrong...No aches, no swelling.All she knew the night before it happened, she noticed the baby is not moving routinely compared previously. My wife suffered severe pre-eclampsia with oligohydramnious abruptly last Sept. 23, 2010. After failure of inducing the baby on that day, a ceasarian operation was done on Sept 24 to get the baby. We are still in the healing process as of the moment.
In God's time, we really want to have another baby to complete our parenthood. Btw, we are both 33 years of age residing here in the Philippines. But we have fear this dilemma might happen again...Can anyone help us? When is the right time (grace period) to have a possible baby? What are the precautions? Can my wife still be pregnant again? Will it happen again?

my wife and I lost our son, Declan Padraig Shea on Dec 21st last year at 31 weeks. We are now pregnat again, by the grace of God, and our Dr. has her on Lovenox. I inject her everyday. The issue is, our insurance only covers 50% and it is around 1600 a month, us spending 800 of that. We have already paid ove 1200. Does anyone know if I can buy it for less?? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

I'm no medical expert, but I've read that heparin is cheaper and some doctors will switch to that instead. I think it's two shots/day, though, but it may at least be worth asking your doctor. Good luck!
