  • How long did you doctor tell you to wait? I would go with what the doctor says.

  • How far along were you? I'd go to the doc or ask at least but I'd wait. Did you have a d&c? Usually those help to not miscarry again b/c it freshens everything up in there... I hate to say it that way. Sorry about your loss, I had a stillborn and think that any time during pregnancy you lose a baby its hard.

  • Well, 4 weeks is only 2 weeks actually preggo right? I mean they add those 2 weeks from conception and all that. You just need wait.. it was a sac, so there was no pain felt by the embryo is the good thing.. Sorry you feel so sad, just take some time and rest then give it another try

  • I think you need to take the time to grieve for your loss before you try again, You need to heal physically and emotionally. Sorry for your loss.

  • you should let your body heal. at least 2 months. doctors (some of them) usually say 4 months, i got pg 3 months after mine and was fine. good luck and sorry for your loss.

  • I miscarried at 5 weeks back in April and am 7 months pregnant now. So obviously I got pregnant right afterwards. My OB said to start trying again when I felt ready. The only reason doctors tell you to wait when you are so early in pregnancy to try again is because then they don't have to try and date the pregnancy from an ultrasound like they did me.
