My husban and I had our first baby, Minna Violet, on Februaury 1st, 2013. Unfortunately, due to complications and her gestational age of 32 weeks, she did not survive more than an hour after delivery.

As emotional as our journey has been, we are pregnant again. We are very excited and hopeful for Baby #2, but I'm so worried about the close delivery timeline. My physician said 12 months between deliveries was safe, and we are past that mark. I also delivered a small, preterm baby so I don't think there is as much risk of a tear at my scar because I wasn't full term with a big baby.

I'm wondering if anyone has had c sections that close or if anyone has been through a similar situation and can give me some insight. The test results confirmed NO genetic relation to our daughter's death, and my doc said she was fully confident that this was a "fluke" and we wouldn't have issues in the future.

Thanks for reading. Thoughtful and respectful posts only please.
