TTC after Loss

  • Hi and thank you for sharing. I haven't had this exact experience (I had a daughter who was born at 25 weeks), but I just wanted to say that I know you'll make the best decision for you and I'll be cheering you on!

  • I had other health issues that prevented me from TTC again so soon.  However,  I wish you luck with what ever decision you choose to make.  We will be here to support you and cheer you on every step of the way.

  • I’m so very sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my first baby, my son Marco, 8 years ago at 29 weeks due to a rare genetic condition.

    My situation was different than yours in that I didn’t have preterm labor. I wasn’t told to wait a year to TTC...but it took me over a year to conceive again...mostly because of the fact that my period was very irregular and took a long time to come back after my loss.

    All this is to say that, though my situation wasn’t exactly like yours, I know what it’s like to have to wait to get pregnant after a loss. And it’s very hard. I think in some ways, though I wouldn’t have wanted to admit it then, it helped emotionally because by the time I was pregnant again, my loss wasn’t quite as raw, and I was in a bit of a better place. Eight years later, I now have 2 healthy girls, 6 and 2 years old. The journey to get them here seemed, as I was going through it, to last for ions...but I lived to tell the tale.

    Know that you’re not alone. SYS is a wonderful place to get support. It’s so hard to get through this, but you will. One day at a time.

    Hugs,
