hi gramma...you may eant to post this question in the miscaaiage forum. There are many women on that forum that have had miscarriages and gone on to have healthy babies. They may be able to give you some information as well. Good luck.

she is having one tommorow, she is scared, and really doesnt talk to much, she didn't tell the doctor she has had cramps, I'm trying to understand, with out pressuring her... i wan't to be a support no matter what. twins do run in the fathers side... but isn't 6 months too soon to get pregnant?

Nope, I had a normal miscarriage in November 06 and in December 06 found out I was pregnant...6 months is actually a good time to start getting pregnant again if you are TTC...but its not to soon...if I understand you right that is

I am sorry your daughter is nervous about this, but it very common to be nervous, esp. given what's she gone through. Truth is, until she has an ultrasound (maybe even 2 ultrasounds) it is almost impossible to tell what's going on in there. I had some sharp pains and spotting during wks 4-7 (I am almost 14 wks now) and I was very worried, but my DR said some cramping and spotting is normal and not to be concerned. I wish you and daughter all the best!

once she has the ultrasound the DR should be able to date the pregnancy---it's possible that she is just further along than she thinks or, like hailsa said, twins. If there is a problem, the DR should be able to see it or at least order another ultrasound and bloodwork to followup and check again.

Actually, they say you can start trying after your next period if you wanted to, even with a molar pregnancy. They say you should wait a year to be on the safe side, but you don't have too. She can have a normal pregnancy, and if she does miscarry is when she should get tested to see if there is anything worng in why she can't conceive. But just as long as you wait at least one cycle you are fine. I didn't plan on getting pregnant either times and I am 14 weeks and the doctor says everything is fine and normal...so anything can happpen

Gramma, I understand the fear. We originally mistook my ectopic for a molar and both are very tramatic in my book. I had an ectopic pregnancy in November and then got pregnant in January. (I heard to wait 3 months - 1 year for the ectopic) All is well so far. I hope your daughters pregnancy goes well, a little cramping can be normal.
