Trying Again??? Gizzy TTC since Jun 2013; 2 kids; 3 angel babies; Beautiful, WY, United States 1431 posts

I delivered my baby boy at 15 weeks 4 days on April 30th of this year...My doc said to wait for at least 2 periods to try again. I just finished my second period last week and I really want to try again but I am scared!!  We have a 3 year old daughter and have now lost 2 babies in the past 9 months. I know I want another child but I don't know if my husband and I can take another loss. When we lost our son it was the worst experience we've ever been through. Just typing this out is making me cry. I miss our son and I am still so upset over his death. I just don't know if I'm ready but I'm 32 and I don;t want to wait forever. I just don't know.....

*hugs* im sorry for your losses. idk i think because you've lost two in the last 9 months, id wait a little and just give your body time to really recover. maybe a few more months


Thank you.  My hubby wants to not prevent or try but to just let it happen naturally when/if God decides it's the right time for us. I love the idea of that but I can't get over this hurt I still carry. I guess We'll need to talk more?? Thanks for the kind words.

I think it's up to the two of you really.  I lost my daughter when she was a month old in September 2011.  Even though others didn't agree with me I knew that I wanted another child right away and got pregnant after my first pp period.  My rainbow baby was born August 1, 2012.  While the pregnancy was hard at times and I was always worrying about something being wrong, I now have a beautiful daughter who will be 2 very soon and I wouldn't change a thing.

That's a beautiful story and I'm glad you have your rainbow baby :)
  I am definitely terrified because William was our rainbow baby and I was told that everything should be fine since I was in the second trimester.  Our first loss was at 8 weeks and we were completely blindsided.  When we lost Will I felt numb.  
Its scary not knowing if it will happen again because there was no medical reason for his death.  I hope we'll both feel at peace when it happens again :)

I'm am so sorry for your loss! :( I had a mc 3 1/2 months ago and it left me heart broken. I've had my two cycles but like you I'm scared! I always thought if I was ever in this situation I would try again right away but that's not the case. I need time to heal. I'll know when its the right time for me to get pregnant again. You'll know when you're ready! Good luck!!!

I just delivered my baby on July 9th at 14 weeks.  It was the hardest thing my husband and I have been through too.  We  have a daughter that will be 3 this fall and we will defiantly be trying again as soon as possible.  I think everyone needs to grieve on their own time and be ready for trying again.  I am sorry for your loss!! it is a terrible thing for a mother to have to endure.


Here's to hoping we both get our rainbow babies when we are ready for them
