 Who in here is TTC? If you are, how did you and your SO/DH come to the decision to try again after a loss?

We knew that we want another-our last child, we had alot of support and we talked about it and knew that our Angel baby would have not wanted us to stop due to the loss.

 We are not trying, because we are pregnant. Deciding to try was pretty easy for us.... we hadnt even had one together, and we want at least 4, including my first DS. We didnt tell our families, because frankly, it wasnt any of their business, and we werent married yet and my parents wouldnt have approved.

It wasn't an easy decision for us.  When I knew there was no chance my pregnancy would last, I said no more.  I'm done.  Of course I knew that was my emotions talking.

We decided to wait the one month and then see how we felt.  We had been TTC for 2 1/2 years prior to our miscarriage.  After the m/c we had to step back and rethink if we really wanted to try.  Our youngest will be 5 in August.  My older sister and I are 7 years apart, my younger sister and I are 5 years apart.  It is a big gap and I wasn't sure if I wanted to have our children have that big of a gap.  Plus, I will turn 33 in June and while that's not old, it's been 5 years since I was pregnant last, did I really want to go through that all again plus the middle of the night feedings? 

Then there was the question that I think everyone asks themselves, what happens if it happens again?

After thinking about it a lot over that month, I came to the conclusion that if I was meant to have another baby it would happen.  If I was meant to have another miscarraige it would happen. 

My husband fully supported my decision.  He gave me his opinion and he listened to mine but he supported me either way.

I hear you momma, I think the hard part is the fact that we may never know why, we may never know the reason for the taking of our child, but have faith and know that YOU did nothing wrong, it is not a punishment in anyway. I know the pain is fresh and your heart is still broken, but I know you and I know you will be OK this experiance will make you stronger. GL MOMMA I Love You! Please take this time to grieve.

It took us 2.5 years to decide to try agian, even now that I am pregnant I still wonder if I made the right choice. No doubt I want this baby, but am I emotionally strong enough to handle it if something were to go wrong

I am not currently TTC as I just had my son in October.  However, when we lost the baby (my 2nd pregnancy) I had a feeling right away that I wanted to try again (my DH was on board) but then had some sadness/depression and had decided to wait.... well as it turns out I got pregnant during the time I decided I wanted to wait so I didn't really get to think it through too much.

 WE aren't trying to concieve right now. But after our m/c we started ttc right after my first period. We planned our baby that we lost and we new we wanted children so we just went for it
