For all you of you that have lost a child how long did you wait before trying to conceive again. I KNOW what doctors tell you and some say wait 6 months and I even had one to tell me, after a m/c, to wait a year. Said a m/c was still like having a baby and the body needed that time to heal. Of course I didnt and conceived 2 months later and went on to have a healthy, normal, entergetic little boy! I did the same after after my next m/c as well. Had another baby boy who was healthy, normal and just as entergetic. lol But with this loss, which wasnt a m/c, I lost my dd due to her being born to early. I was 5 months and 4 days pregnant. (Any who is curious to the story you can visit my homepage (profile) and read the journal about it) This happened on June 14th, 2008. I KNOW I am NOT gonna replace Payton in anyway but I am wanting to get pregnant again. Payton is and was her own individual self and NOTHING will EVER replace her but that doesnt take away the fact that I am still wanting another baby. I feel ready and we started back having sex already but the first few times we used protection. My dh is pretty much leaving it up to me. Hes ok with NOT getting pregnant again and hes ok with GETTING pregnant again. So hes not much help at deciding "how long" to wait. I know its different with m/c, I guess anyway from my experience, of the time to wait. But in my situation this time I gave birth and everything was the same as if I would have been full term. Like I got an epidoral, I had contractions, I had to push, they had to deliver the placenta, etc... So by doing all this does it make it a longer wait? I mean after I had my m/c I didnt wait at all really. As soon as we started back having sex we didnt use no protection and we was pregnant within a couple months. I dont know what to do. I really dont want to go on no birthcontrol but I want to do whats best ya know? I am really wanting to get pregnant again but I was just wondering that if anyone has been in my situation how long did you wait? What advice do you have?
