For me, unfortunately pregnancy after loss is scary. I had a m/c with my first pregnancy and it felt like it came out of the blue... I had no sign that anything was wrong, then at 9 weeks I went to a routine u/s and found out that the baby had died around 6 weeks. It was very hard for me to get excited and to 'bond' to my other children when they were in utero... it's one thing to realize that bad things can happen, but another to know all too well that bad things can happen to you personally. That being said, I think it did get easier as I got out of the first trimester and past the date of the loss, and I do think my m/c has made me a better mom because I really and truly appreciate how lucky I am to have my children. Lots of luck to you!!!
