How Soon After?

How soon after losing a child did you try to get pregnant again? I lost my boys at 5 months into the pregnancy. its been 5 months since we lost them and I am ready to TTC again as this is the time that I was originally planning to try when my eldest was 15 months old before popping up pregnant with them.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. =(

    I have heard a recommendation of 6 months but I really think it is up to you! Is your body healed? Are you mentally/emotionally ready for a pregnancy. If the answers to those questions are YES ~ then go for it.

  • Yes I am ready physically but I don't know that I will ever be emotional. I think i'll be a wreck during the pregnancy.

  • I just lost baby number 2 after trying for 11 months. Dr told me and my husband we can start trying again in 6 months but it's up to us if we feel that we are ready to start trying again but then.
