I'm totally jumping the gun with this question, I know that, I would just like to hear others' stories. A quick recap, I've had an early miscarriage, infertility, a 22 week loss and our rainbow was born in March. She's amazing, I'm so in love, but like most new parents we've gotten the "when you have another...." comments. Right now I am completely undecided as to whether to have more children, and that's fine for now. But I worry that when the time comes to try or not try, I'll still be undecided.
In a perfect world I would like another child....I love being a mom and I always pictured having at least two. It would also be nice to have a boy (but another girl would be A-ok). But, MH and I are both 35, so we'd be going on 36 when and if we decide to try again. No clue if we'll have the IF issue again and how long that could take. With our angel I had an incompetent cervix...or so they think. It also could have been due to chorio. If it is IC, I am comfortable with another pregnancy because my cervix held up beautifully with my rainbow and a cerclage. But what if it was chorio? I don't know if I could handle another loss, and I know the chances of another infection are slim, but in my mind, it happened once, why wouldn't it again?
After our losses, all I wanted in the world is my rainbow baby. Well now I have her and I couldn't be happier, so a part of me feels like I should count my blessings and be happy with what we have. Like I said, I know I am rambling and unncessearily worrying about something that shouldn't even be an issue yet. But I'm just wondering...after your loss/rainbows, did you just know you wanted more? Did you struggle with whether or not to have more?
