I miscarried yesterday..

I was 5 weeks pregnant. I'm feeling sooo sad. My question is how much time should we wait before we try again? I'm not in a rush, I'm kinda scared now to be honest. I didn't think this would happen. I have a 4 yearld healthy boy & never had any problems while I was preg with him.

  • my heart goes out to you. Pregnancy depletes you of your nutritional stores.So you'll want to wait at least a few months so your body can get stock back up on nutrition again and to give yourself a chance to get your body in prime condition for pregnancy again. goodluck!

  • I'm sorry for your loss. I myself have had 2 miscarriages. Give yourself about 2-3 months to get your body back in shape before trying again.

  • imo waite a coulp months not only to rebuild nutrients but also to give you time to morn the loss of the one. My mom had 7 misscareges befor having my sis and me. but the one thing she said was that if you don't grieve the loss you will loose the next just because of stress.
