My sister and sister in law had miscarriages around the same time. It was horrific.  They both got pregnant again next cycle and have two beautiful rainbow babies born a month apart. 

I’m not sure if that’s recommended though.

Hi Bee,

I’m so sorry for your loss! I just finished miscarrying as well and checked in with my midwife to discuss how to move forward. She told me there’s no necessity to wait to TTC again if you feel up to it and that the vast majority of women who miscarried have a succesful pregnancy after the MC.

I had a MC in May and am now 12 weeks. I’ll be honest, it’s taken a lot of the joy and excitement out of this pregnancy because I am constantly stressed out about what happens if something goes wrong. But everything is looking good, and peanut is growing as expected! So yes — there is hope to have a successful pregnancy after a miscarriage.

I had a first trimester miscarriage with a D&C.  Got pregnant one cycle (6 weeks) later.  (We chose to wait for my period before trying, which took about a month.)  The product of that pregnancy is currently helping me bake cookies for her halloween party at preschool.

I am trying now! My mother had nine miscarriages before me and went on to have both me and my sibling, so its certainly possible. In fact, it is quite common–miscarriages are not at all rare. MANY people who have succesful pregnancies also had miscarriges.

Sousou1 :  It’s definitely possible! I’d say it’s even highly likely if there’s no underlying issue. Though I’ve never been pregnant myself, both my mom and my aunt miscarried their first pregnancy, and both went on to have three healthy children.

I had back to back miscarriages earlier this year, and now I’m 28 weeks pregnant – with twins.  Miscarriages are incredibly common (we just don’t realize this because women aren’t encouraged to be open about it), and often a sign that your body is actually working just as it should.

Had an MMC with D&C last September (detected at 8 weeks) after getting pregnant first cycle off BC, took us 6 months to get our next BFP, I’m now 35 weeks having had an incredibly straightforward and relatively easy pregnancy.

Good friend has been TTC for 18 months and had 2 early miscarriages (one requiring D&C) with lengthy waits for BFP between. After her second miscarriage she got pregnant 2nd cycle and is due 2 days before me — she’s had a no-complications pregnancy.

Sister of a friend had a 1st trimester loss, got pregnant again first cycle trying and delivered a very healthy little girl 3 months ago.

We’re all early 30s.

I will say, similar to previous PP the miscarriage took the joy out of pregnancy for me for the first few months as I didn’t trust myself to get excited in case something went wrong. At 12 weeks I started slightly relaxing, at 20 I started to get a little excited, and at 24 I fully relaxed and moved on from my fears. 

Miscarriages are AWFUL but unfortunately they are also very common and don’t usually indicate any future fertility issues.

I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks. I got pregnant again and now that rainbow baby is 2.5 years old.

My friend got pregnant in March and had a missed miscarriage around 6 weeks I believe and had a d&c. She is currently 11 weeks pregnant and everything is going well so far. It’s possible! Good luck to you!

Sousou1 :  No personal experience, but I follow the olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson and her husband on YouTube and they suffered miscarriage two years ago, and she just gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl. I would recommend going over to her YT channel (I think it’s called The East Fam now) and watching their story.

I also have faced this and can understand your pain. Well, I decided to move forward. I want to share a video that really helped me a lot.

Sousou1 :  I’m sorry for your loss!  I had a miscarriage recently too and now we are trying for a baby again.  I wanted to comment on a couple things in your post.

Many people recommended fertility vitamins but I will let be all natural.

You don’t have to take anything to try to increase your fertility, but are you taking prenatal vitamins?  Those are really important because they prevent possible birth defects in babies.

Also I think what cause this miscarriage  is maybe a vibrator my husband used on me , but not sure. 

Please don’t think this.  There is NO way a vibrator could cause a miscarriage.  You could have rough sex or any kind of sex and it wouldn’t cause a miscarriage.  They are most always caused by a genetic problem with the baby that is just bad luck.
