I didn't think it would matter since I was having a D&C the next day, but now I'm worried I might have gotten pregnant again.
Not sure if you will read this, but no that is not possible. If someone got pregnant two weeks after it was two weeks after a natural miscarriage. When you wait it out, you would have automatically started to bleed & miscarry when your hormone levels got low enough. It is not unusual for it to take some time between when the baby passes & the body finally reaches a low enough level to kick start the physical miscarriage. When that happens, it is not unusual for your body to hormonally respond to the natural miscarriage like the start of a cycle, so you could very well ovulate 2 weeks later. If your body had not yet dropped hormone levels to start to miscarry on it's own, you certainly did not ovulate. Plus, until your body does that you have a mucous plug & your cervix is closed.

I hope that helps you feel less worried.
