TTC After a Loss

when it rains it pours

Did I Intro On This board?? Just in case here is a quick one. I am in my mid 20 ' s and SO is in his early 30's. I have a son from a previous marriage and we are trying for our first together. We have been trying since March 2014 and had a mc at 7w a little over two weeks ago.

Now to the present. We decided that we would get back to ttc right away! I have been coping well with the mc with the exception of occasionally breaking down of the last few weeks. Last night so had a heart attack. Trying to cope has reached new difficulty at this point. Please say a prayer for us ladies. I would greatly approciate it.
