I am also so very sorry for your loss as well . I know how you feel as I too lost a child at almost 20 weeks. I will tell you my story in hopes that it gives you some insight as to pregnancy after loss.
I had already had 2 beautiful daughters , no previous problems getting pregnant and no miscarriages. My husband and I decided we would like to have another child. To my dismay we were actually having a hard time conceiving this time around. It had only been 4 months of trying but for me I got pregnant so quickly before I felt this was not normal for my body. After going through my cycle chart my doctor said though I was ovulation fine , my periods were coming to quicky , like every 22 days , so it was not enough time for the egg to actually attach before I started shedding again ! so she put me on one cycle of clomid and BAM ! First month I became pregnant. Went to all my appointments , everything was great . At the 18th week I went in with my family to do the measuring and find out the sex of our child. i knew right away something was not right. I had no amniotic fluid left , and the babies kidneys were extremely large and not functioning. So I was sent to a specialist at Mass general in Boston where I was again given the same news and told that the child would not survive outside of the womb. The doctor asked me to deliver the child because they would like to do an autopsy after to find out why this had happened and if was genetic or not.
I just could not bring myself to do it , so I opted to have it done under anesthesia and they would remove the baby. After the procedure , I went home and waited for results. Turns out it was not genetic and they really hadno idea what caused the kidneys to be so cystic and stop working , just a fluke thing unfortunately. So now lets go 7 weeks after my loss. Finally my husband and I were able to be intimate. It was very emotional for both of us but we felt very close and it was much needed. May I also say we used protection. Now fast forward 7 more weeks. I am in the shower and I just feel a pressure and bumpp in my stomach as I m washing up. I tell my husband that I think I may have an infection or something from the procedure a few months back. I felt bloated and like something was " off" . I called my obgyn and she asked me to come in for an ultrasoundd to just see what was going on . She had told me it takes a while for my body to get back to normal because my body felt like it had actually given birth. I had even had milk come in after the loss !
So I am in the ultrasound room with the same woman who had done my previous diagnosis. I am all by myself as well. She looks at the screen , then looks at me and smirks. She says , "there is absolutely nothing wrong with your uterus other than the fact that you are PREGNANT " !! looked at her like " Ha Ha funny funny " . She assured me that I was indeed not only pregnant but I was 7 weeks pregnant !. This was to be my little miracle child. I was in shock as was my husband when I called to tell him. The one night of love after loss had produced another child ( though we still question how! lol ). 7.5 months later I delivered ANOTHER healthy baby GIRL !!

Do not give up hope. You will be blessed someday .

I also asked after I had my daughter what the sex of the baby I had lost was , finally ready to know.
It was a boy :(
