How long did you wait to get pregnant again after a miscarriage?

I found out I was pregnant on August 5th, and they told me I was a high risk of miscarriage or preterm birth if I made it further into my pregnancy since it had only been 11 months since I had my daughter. I had a miscarriage on August 28th. Everything I’ve read online says that you should space your pregnancies 12 to 18 months apart. I don’t wanna replace the baby I miscarried, but my husband and I just really feel like we wanna have another baby. I’ve read online that they recommend 6 months from the time you miscarry before trying to get pregnant again but that there have also been studies that say if you get pregnant within the first few months after a miscarriage that you’re more likely to have a successful pregnancy because your body is “primed” to accept a future pregnancy. I’m struggling with should I wait or should I not because it still hasn’t been 18 months since I had my daughter, but I also know so many ppl who didn’t wait that long between pregnancies and he successful pregnancies so I’m not really sure what to do but I definitely don’t wanna wait longer than I need to! Advice?

Dont try but dont prevent it either. Just let your bodies do what they need to and a pregnancy will happen when its supposed to :pray::green_heart:

I had a miscarriage and I’m pregnant again. You should defiantly let your body have a few cycles, before you try to have another baby. But hey, I’m no doctor.

I got pregnant 1 month after I had my daughter and I was 39 both are fine and so am I.

My OB advised we do bloodwork until my hcg levels returned to normal and then we try again. Took 3 months for my hormones to level back out and got the all clear to try! I know someone who miscarried and got pregnant within a month and carried to term

It is different for every body and every pregnancy. Best to consult with your ob/midwife and physician if you are having concerns or are unsure of what to do. They can give you the best medical advice for what’s healthy. Ultimately, it’s your decision on what to do.
