Thanks, I had 2 in the last year. One at 12 weeks and the other at 4,5 weeks.
Maybe you should talk to your doctor about chances for repeat trisonomy to ease your mind. As for getting pregnant again, the only way is to try and see. After all you already got pregnant, so your chances ar higher. I wish you all the luck with this!

Thanks for your response! Not sure what my question was either, lol, guess I am worried that I won't be able to get pregnant again because of my age? We also found out that the baby girl we lost had Trisomy 18 so also worried about same thing happening again if we do get pregnant. Sounds like you had a miscarriage too? If so I am very sorry.

I am not sure what is your question. And I am sorry about your loss. If you are asking whether you can try immediately after the miscarriage, I heard conflicting things. One doctor told me that I should wait for at least one normal period and then try, the other told me that I can try immediately and if get pregnant then I was ready. For me it boiled down to whether or not I was ready in my head.
Good luck with whatever you decide!
