I have lost five and been blessed with three. It is your choice and you have to be ready. It is nice of you to consider their feelins but you lost the child and it is up to you and the higher power to decide when to try again. stay true to you and they will love the child the same.good luck!

As long as you wait the prescribed period prior to trying to conceive (mainly to make sure your body is ready to go again), it should be fine.

If you feel your family will be negative, then tell them that you don't want stress and negativity. If they don't come around, then don't be around them.

I had a miscarriage and the doctor told me to wait until 3 normal menstrual cycles had passed before attempting to get pregnant again. There could be other circumstances so contact your doctor and they will give you great advice. Hopefully your family will be excited to the fact that another family member will be coming!

It is your choice and they can support it or learn to live with it! Do you girl and no worries!

Now folks do have a point about finances. If you are not financially ready to support a child (for the next 18 years) then you may be physically ready, but you're not totally ready.

I'm not saying that you can't or shouldn't do it, but you should definitely be financially prepared.

thank you its just so hard you know cause lots of people ask shouldn't you wait a year or two what about fiances what about this and that and i mean they make me feel guilty that i am ready to try again. my mom is one that does this the most makes comments like well we wont be having any baby's anytime soon right,and it hurts me.

And, Petra, I'm so sorry for your loss. I went thru 4 miscarriages myself. Tell your family that if YOU are ready, YOU are the one that matters. I know that sounds harsh, but they have to help move forward
