A baby loss at 16 weeks

I was so happy when I found out I was having a second child after 3yrs of struggle,my son is 5yrs old. But all came to a halt as I lost my baby at 16wks when it died inside me without any notice.
I didn't know what had happened until I went for a scan and the doctor had to tell me the sad news. My hubby couldn't believe it and I felt confused.The doctor had to induce the delivery by inserting 2 pills under my private parts which took 8hrs of pain for the baby to come out.
It happened last month Oct 28th but still I am trying for another child and I don't know how long it will take again as I am desperate for a baby.
Any answer please I will be so glad cos now I am using pregnacare conception to give myself the best chance.
