Just because you've had one miscarriage, it doesn't make you any more likely to have another one - that is unless there is a specific reason (like a hormone imbalance, etc.). I just had a mc in April, and my doc told me to wait 4 - 6 months, but that was purely for emotional reasons. If I were to mc again, it would be really difficult emotionally. But he said that it was safe after you have your period to become pregnant again.
And I look at it this way - if I'm no more likely to miscarry after my 1st period than I am in 6 months, then I'm going to go for it. I'm not going to sit around for 6 months waiting for possibly the same outcome. I would feel even worse after waiting and mc again because even more time would be lost!
Your doc might want to monitor your more closely this time, but I think you're okay! Good luck mommy! I hope to be in your shoes in a month too :)
