See your dr: If its only been a little bit of time since you had bleeding that was either a miscarriage or a period, the doctor can check a test to see if you are still making pregnancy hormones (which you may be if it was a miscarriage). If you don't want to be pregnant, you should talk with your dr about birth control choices. If you do want to be pregnant, plan ahead, start prenatal vitamins, and be health.

Risk of miscarriage: You are not at risk of a second miscarriage any more than if you didn't have the loss. The chances of having a second blighted ovum are low.

See your doc: It is possible to have a miscarriage but you do need to see your Physician for exam and blood work.

Probably not: An "enlarged uterus with a 12 mm lining" is not likely to "mean early pregnancy". A blood betaHCG / pregnancy test is much more reliable and accurate.
