My story is much like some here. I lost a baby girl at 18 weeks gestation. Everything looked great. Her heartbeat at 14 weeks was 165. Her 12 weeks ultrasound showed her smiling and moving. At 18 weeks I went for my triple screen and they could not find a heartbeat, they confirmed with ultrasound that she passed. They have no idea why. They induced labor 3 days later. I gave birth, I called a funeral home, my milk came in and I went home without a baby. My question is, should I try again. I have 4 healthy children, this was my first miscarriage. I am almost 35 though. Is it worth it? As much as I would love another baby, is it worth the risk? I don't know what to do? Does anyone have any advice on how they handled this or any advice they have heard? I don't know what I'm looking for, I know it is my decision, I just want any knowledge or opinion from women who have been there and know the pain of this decision. Thank you.
