I am so very sorry you miscarried. This drug is classified as a Pregnancy Category B. Several reproduction studies have been performed in rabbits and rats at doses up to six times the human dose and have revealed no evidence of impaired fertility or harm to the fetus due to nitrofurantoin.
Was your doctor able to tell you why he thought you might have miscarried? Did you undergo a D & C and have the fetal contents karotyped and examined?
More often than not miscarriage is Mother Nature's way of weeding out those pregnancies which are not meant to be genetically. Meaning somewhere along the way there was something amiss and wrong with the chromosomes in the makeup of the fetus.
Miscarriage is really touch -- I have had 9 of them. My advice to you is to rest, take care of yourself. Talk to someone you trust about your feelings. And when the doctor tells you its okay to try again, and you feel like you are ready emotionally then try again.
