   Yes its essential to tell him what happened. He would have a better idea of how to follow up and its important for him to know this. If at any time you would need to go to the hospital its important to understand they are there to help. I did a while back need to go to the hospital and sometimes dependent on what a person's psychiatrist suggests its needed. Its also important to let him know about what happened in the past as any traumatic event can impact on a person sometimes long term but there are some ways to help that as well. Discuss all this with him so he can work with you to obtain the help you need which if you inform him now and the concerns can be addressed might not involve going to the hospital.

I'm sorry about the miscarriage, I know how devastating this must be for you.  Did your doctor supply you with much info/ advice?
Wouldn't allowing yourself time to recover (emotionally and physically) be a sensible option?
I think that some grief counselling would be beneficial.  Dissociating is probably understandable given the extreme stress of the situation.
I think that you need to take time to grieve and maybe even reconcile your losses before you try to conceive again.
I think that the best chance you give any other attempt comes from a position of stability.  You know yourself and your situation best but please take time to consider things before you rush into any further plans.
