Trying again....

Im jenn (28) married to DH Zach (28) and we have 1 DD Hannah (8). We found out right before Christmas that we were expecting #2 after 6 months of TTC. We were so excited!!!!
Around the 4th I started spotting and we saw what looked like a small fetal pole and I was just under 6 weeks sowe were ok with tht. Had a repeat US on the 11th and there was no HB and no change from the week before.
I waited it out a week and when my body didn't miscarry on it's own I tried misoprostol. It didn't really work for me but on the 23 I finally miscarried. I ended up in the OB office after severe bleeding a few hours and lots of pain even with meds. Turns out some tissue had gotten caught and was causing the bleeding. Once that was removed I did much better.
My spotting finally stopped yesterday and had a f/up with the OB today. She cleared us to try again once we are ready. HCG was still at 113 so waiting for (hopefully) 1 more test to hit 0 and then we will start. I'm charting again now to watch for when my body goes back to normal.
We are TTC ASAP. I am scared and excited all at once!!!! So, guess that's my story =)

Sorry I introduced myself and then disappeared! My Internet was being crazy!

Thank you for the welcome =). I've found all docs give different "standards" for TTC. Mine said as soon as the HCG is negative it's ok to try again. She explained the slight chance that there can be an increased risk of m/c the first few cycles but said that's up to us.
If I know my body it won't O during my m/c cycle anyways. In the past I've been anov immediately after m/c or stopping birth control. I'm temping just to see when I start to O again though.
