Trying to conceive

This is all very new to me. I've never joined a forum before, I've been debating with myself whether I actually want to or not. I guess if we don't talk about if, it's not real?
Anyway, a bit of background. July 2015 my husband and I decided it was the right time to TTC (I'm getting the hang of this short hand, bear with me). By November we found out we were pregnant. On Christmas day I was 12 weeks, and really excited. My first scan wasn't due until 4th January. Unfortunately I had a miscarriage on new years eve.
We both struggled with this and even now I find it difficult. We decided pretty quick that we wanted to try again. It took until August before we got pregnant again, which I lost at 6 weeks.
We feel like we are doing everything right, but every month the constant reminder that it's not working.
I decided it was time to see the doctor (something I've been avoiding). The doc has sent me for various blood tests and swabs with the nurse. I've been referred to the gynecologist and my husband is due to have his tests next month.
Does anyone know what I should expect from the gyno? What's the next step after this?
I don't speak to anyone about what's going on. I couldn't deal with all the fussing and sorry faces after the first miscarriage, so I just don't want to speak to anyone.
So I'm really just looking for advice and some friendly people to speak to. Who actually know what I'm going through.

No next step would be to check fellas sperm count and mobility. If u have regular periods (ie nothing abnormal like very heavy or frequent which would indicate POS or endometriosis) then that's all ur teats. They may offer u a vaginal ultrasound scan which will show follicles and womb lining etc but it's more a case of they would want to see what ur fellas results come back like first as a lit of the time the issue isn't us its them x

Sometimes there's no underlying reason for a miscarriage except it's just the bodies way of kindly telling u that there was a major problem with that embryo and that's why u loose it because it probably wouldn't of lived or been severely disabled baby had it continued so the body will make sure this pregnacy doesnt continue xx they're more common than u think and most women who suffer more than one go on to have healthy babies xx
