Hi ladies,
I've been surfing around trying to find an answer that I'm sure is here, but I can only find topics related to pregnancy after miscarriages that happened much further along than I was. So I was wondering if anyone here could tell me how long they waited to try again after having a miscarriage at only about 5 weeks along. I basically had the miscarriage right after the time I would have had my normal period and it was pretty much just like a normal period and has just ended.
So being that it was so early on, I guess I'm just hoping someone will tell me it's ok to go ahead and try again with this very next ovulation.

lol, that's okay honey! Basically, the answer to this depends on the Dr. but I've heard that it's good to wait a cycle to make it more accurate to date the pregnancy is all.

I've heard the same thing. Both of my m/c were very early - my doctor said to wait a cycle before ttc'ing again - but we didn't. We had one cycle in between the 1st and 2nd m/c - we tried, but didn't get pregnant that cycle. Then we tried again the first cycle after the 2nd m/c and it worked! So, if you m/c early on, you're probably fine (physically, at least - emotionally may be another story) to start ttc'ing again immediately. Good luck!

Our C-section is scheduled for Feb 16th! Then we'll know whether Baby Bennett is a BOY or a GIRL!!!

I didn't wait at all after my m/c @ 6weeks. It took us about 4 months to get pregnant again and I am now 28wks. GOOD LUCK!!!
