I'm sorry for your loss! I have always heard to wait one cycle and then it's okay to go ahead and try again - unless it was a more traumatic miscarriage like an ectopic or molar pregnancy. Physically, 14 weeks should be plenty of time, so when you are emotionally ready to try again, you should be fine. Best of luck to you!

i would ask your doctor about it! your body needs time to heal after having a baby and having a miscarriage! you wouldn't want to try again if your body isn't healed and ready to support another pregnancy! a friend of mine had a miscarriage in feb. we were only a few weeks apart with our due dates! its hard to lose a life no matter what age! i'm so sorry for your loss! but i would def talk to your doctor about it if you are concerned!
My sister had five miscarriages before her first child, the doctors couldn't explain why she was miscarring. She then had 3 healthy children (one at a time) and never miscarried again (without any fertility treatments or anything), she was so glad she kept trying. Wait until you are feeling up to trying again, don't give up if you think you will regret it in the future. I'm sorry for your loss it is so hard to deal with, good luck with pregnancies in the future. In the mean time be as healthy as possible that can help fertility, take vitamins ect. Your body needs good support to carry a baby, so help it all you can just in case that helps you.
I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Dr's will usually say it's ok to try again straight away - tho it's easier to have at least one usual period first.
There is no telling as to why you miscarried.
I had 5 miscarriages before I managed to take a baby to term. Then one between each other baby.
One in 3 pregnancies will end in miscarriage - sad but true. Dr's won't usually investigate a cause till you have had between 3-5 in a row (depends on where you live)
Make sure you look after yourself as much as possible and enjoy trying again.

Emma, I had two miscarriages before I was pregnant with my daughter. The first one was a 14 week miscarriage in March, then I had a 6 week miscarriage in June, followed by a confirmed pregnancy very shortly afterwards and a healthy delivery in March the following year. So your 14 weeks should be fine - you should be safe to try again unless there were complications with your miscarriage.
And I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Miscarriage is a difficult thing to deal with, and I wish you the best for your next try :)
