  • no one can really say why you lostthe baby, low progesterone? not viable as in chromosomes or something to that effect...

  • I say have another one. M/C are more common than anyone thinks. I had one in March. The doctor was so nice. He told me it was a genetic defect.

  • When my oldest daughter was only 4 months old, I got pregnant again and miscarried within a couple of days of finding out. I did, however, have another daughter less than 2 years later. I think that wierd things happen...who knows why a pregnancy doesn't make it? Anyway, I think there is no reason to not try for another one if you want one. I have a couple of friends, actually, who have had miscarriages and then went on to have healthy pregnancies.
