my first son Scottie was born on sept.11th 2012 , I was only 24 weeks and 1 day pregnant . He was 1 pound 10.5 oz and 12 inches long . He was in the NICU and they said he was doing so good that they were going to try their hardest to get him home by christmas . On Sept.30th we got a phone call that scottie had pulled his breathing tube out himself and that we needed to get to the NICU asap . So when we got there he had already passed . It has been so hard ! I had been told from my (old ) doctor that I was unable to have children so me and my boyfriend were very upset we thought it was not going to happen for us , then May 2011 we had a tubular pregnancy and I was told by a new doctor that I was able to have children then scottie came along and he was so perfect ! I want nothing more than to be a mommy ... the first time I layed eyes on him I just knew that I was the luckiest mommy in the whole world ..he gave me purpose .... is it normal to want to get pregnant as soon as possible ? I have never been through this of course nor has my family and I just dont know how I am supposed to feel or think ... or if having another baby would help?

I lost my daughter and I will tell you that there is no "right" way to feel . All of your feelings are right for you.

You probably should talk to your doctor though about how long you should wait since you need to give your body some time to recover also your feelings may change a little from day to day.

So sorry for your loss , ((Hugs))
