I am new to posting and reading boards, so this response is a little late. Just thought I would share my experience, since I am now going through the same thing. First off, so sorry about your loss.
My fiance and I tried for almost 9 months to get pregnant with our first baby... found out in July 2012 that I was 6 weeks along. Had a normal pregnancy, no complications, not a thought crossed my mind that anything would go wrong. At 19 weeks, I found out that I had a missed miscarriage, that the heart had stopped beating. I had to take meds to start contractions, but no D&C was necessary. The meds finally worked Nov 1st. At the beginning of January, after seeing a genetic couselor for my case, we were given the "OK" to try again... so we will wait and see how the second pregnancy goes (if I get pregnant, won't know for another couple days, expecting my period tomorrow but already have signs of pregnancy), but I, too, would wait and listen to the doctor. I was in such a hurry, too... but I know I can't go through another m/c, I felt like I almost lost my mind with grief... all I wanted to do was get pregnant again, but it is better to wait, let you body heal, and take the vitamins you need to take to get your body ready to carry a baby... Best of luck!!!!
