I just had a miscarriage. I was 10.5 weeks along started spotting had an u/s and their was no heartbeat. It appears from the mesurements the baby had been dead for 2-3 weeks. I decided to let my body miscarry "naturally" vs using drugs or a D&C. This was a week ago and the bleeding is just about finished.

So my question is, for mothers out there who've had similar experiences . . . When did your doctor have you come back in to be checked out?

Mine wants to see me in a month and that seems really long to me. I want to make sure everything came out and my body is healing ok because we want to start trying again as soon as we can. Please let me know what your doctors told you.

Thanks!!

Your doctor probably wants to wait a month to see you to make sure that your period had returned to normal. As soon as you have a few regular periods, it should be safe to start trying again. I haven't had this happen to me, and I'm sorry for your loss, but I am a nursing student and that is what I have learned in class : ) hope it helps
