Don't fret, it's likely the pictures are still there. Just take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

It is possible that when you edited the pictures on your computer, that you might have changed the file format when you resaved them.
Check the names of your picture files on the computer and compares the endings (.JPG or .BMP or whatever) between new pictures that come directly from your camera and pictures that you have edited and resaved.
If the formats are different at all, then your camera will probably not be able to read them. Cameras usually save pictures in one specific format and can only read them if they are in exactly that format. A computer on the other hand is much more flexible and can usually read or save pictures in many different formats.
Your computer should give you the option of saving a picture file in a different format if you want. When you edit and save the pictures on your computer next time, use the SAVE AS feature, this should give you the option of changing the name of the file as well as the file extension from a drop down list. Then just try saving the picture files in different formats until you find the one that your camera can read. Or just look in your cameras Owner's Manual and find out exactly what format the pictures need to be in for the camera to recognize and display them from a memory card.
Same thing happened to me, after taking some pictures of a christening, connected to card reader, it wasn't recognised by card reader. I re-inserted it in camera and got card error, tried some softwares to extract pics but for nothing!!! I'm very dissatasfied!!
Inspect the camera itself under good light with a keen eye. You may find a pin is bent, broken or missing in the flash card compartment. This would require the aid of a camera technician to fix. If this is not the case though, then perhaps the card has become corrupt or faulty. I would suggest purchasing a leading brand card reader(eg lexar or sandisk) as they often come with image recovery software to help in these situations. Good Luck!
