As I understand it medically, there's no need to wait.
That said, you're often advised to wait until after you first period, but I think that's more about being able to confirm and date the pregnancy. Ie. If you haven't returned a negative pregnancy test following your miscarriage, how would you know it was because you haven't fully miscarried the last baby or the start of a new pregnancy? If it is the start of a new pregnancy you wouldn't know your LMP so wouldn't be able to say how many weeks you were, so if you were to need a scan they wouldn't be able to tell you if the baby was developing right for the age, as they wouldn't know the age. Obviously in both those cases thing would eventually run their course and you'd find out, but it could be extra weeks of uncertainty for you to deal with.
