TTC After a Loss

Intro & story

Hey ladies -
        This is my first month ttc after a devastating loss at 17 weeks due to a rare genetic disease we found out we are carriers for. We have a 1 in 4 chance of it happening again, and are hoping for the best. I'm filled with anxiety and memories of the past year of ttc and then the loss. Back to poas and ttw! Yikes - I hope we can all offer each other support, cause I know I'm not the only one freaking out here! :) Good luck to everyone on this difficult ttc journey!

  • So sorry for your losses. I know someone who both she and her husband were carriers of a genetic disorder and were told that there was almost zero chance that they would have a healthy baby, especially a girl. They did suffer about 4 losses but they have three healthy beautiful children, including a girl! I don't want to give false hope and I don't usually talk about things without hard evidence...but try to stay positive. Doctors cannot predict everything.

  • I am sorry for your loss
  • Thanks everyone! and thanks for sharing your friends story @MooFish2364 it gives me hope.. I know I may be facing another loss at some point, bc we want at least two kids, so it will be a long road ahead. I didn't want to do ivf with pre genetic diagnosis yet, just wanted to try naturally. If it happens again, I don't know what I would do. Trying to stay positive.
