TTC After a Loss


I'm new to the TTCAL board, I have 3 children and was 16 weeks pregnant with #4 when we couldn't find the heart beat at my 2/27 appt. I'm overwhelmed, but already wanting to know what's next IF we want to try again. Having lost the baby after we thought we were in the clear is really hard for me, do I want to go through the stress of trying again and then feeling like I won't be confident in the pregnancy sticking until when?

    so sorry for your loss - it can be overwhelming at first.  Take it easy and allow yourself to feel whatever you want.

    @laurarams Sorry for your loss, and welcome. I wish I could help, but I don't have any living children. I think your answer will become clear given some time to grieve.
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Ditto to what @vlagrl29 said. Any and all feelings you have or don't have are valid.
