Trying to conceive

So here's my story, last September my boyfriend of 5 years and I conceived for the first time unexpectedly. We were ecstatic and scared all at the same time. We soon got over the fear and when my parents were finally on board, we got news that I was losing our baby. Our LO grew to only 6 weeks but I carried until almost 12. That was on Christmas eve. In January I had my first menstrual cycle and in February we unexpectedly conceived again. I thought that when we lost our first one i wanted to try again right away. I soon found out, after finding out about being pregnant again that I was scared, really scared and found myself unsure of wanting to be pregnant again. This time I was scared not of my parents but losing another one. Everything was going perfectly, our 8 week scan showed baby was growing 2 days ahead of schedule with a strong healthy heartbeat. 12 weeks rolled around and I was so anxious until I heard the little heartbeat again. My dreams were coming true. Until 3 and a half weeks later when my water broke and I started having contractions. My doc told me that at only 16 weeks there was nothing he could do. I lost my baby girl the next morning, physically she was perfect, she is perfect 6.5 inches and 4 ounces. But I can't help but wonder what went wrong. We opted to have chromosomal testing done on my Amia just in case we could have some answers and today I had a follow up with my OB to do further blood tests. I want to see a maternal/fetal medicine specialist to maybe do more testing because seeing my baby killed me. I can't go through that again. Has anyone had anything similar to this happen or any advice on how I can move forward. I really would love to have babies with my love one day and I would like that day to be in the near future, hopefully within the next year. I want our family started already.
