  • i think it's okay to start trying again. we had two miscarriages and started trying within weeks of both. i'm sure weight has something to do with it, but if you take care of yourself i think you will be fine. Baby dust to ya and good luck!

  • some doctors advice you wait a certain lengh of time before you try to concieve again1 at least one ful cycle! however i lost a baby at 12 weeks! went into hospital the friday for a d and c and found out 4 days later i was pregnant! things are going ok im 30 weeks this monday i had loads of bleeding at the beginning and thought id lost him but he's still there going strong! i think it varys from person to person and how strong your body is put to save the scares id wait a full cycle but it sounds like your ready so give it a go

    good luck!!

  • After my miscarriage, the doctor said it would be ok TTC after 1 full cycle. We waited two cycles. My daughter was two in May.

    I'd suggest talking with your doctor about the weight thing, though. That might be impeding your conception process.

  • Doctors advise waiting 3 months. I had a miscarriage and was pregnant again in 2 months and all was fine. Good luck!
