When did your doctor say you could get pregnant again?

Just had my 6 wk pp visit and the nurse practitioner said I should wait a year to get pregnant. My friend's doctor said she didn't have to wait at all at her follow up visit (although she knew she HAD to get a c section for the next baby whereas I might try a VBAC). I'm curious to know what everyone else was told? We don't really want to wait a year to start trying again. Thanks!!
