My beautiful little Audrey was just born on May 28th and was stillborn. I am still dealing with the loss of my daughter and I would like to wait to have more children. I know my body needs to heal and I need to mentally be prepared for it. However, I am just 20 years old and I would love to add to my family. I don't see it as replacing her, no one could ever do that, she is my first child. I want to give her siblings like I would have even if she was here. If I have another little girl, I would love to honor my Audrey by making her name her baby sister's middle name. I realize I am young, but I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years and we have our own house together with stable jobs. My question is, how long should I wait before trying for a new baby? If you had a pregnancy after a loss, how did you get through it?
