We are in so much pain, it pains me more when my husband suddenly cries of grief, we only wanted to have a child and be a family, we didn't expect that its gonna be this hard. I know having another child won't replace my son, but I'm hoping for a better tomorrow with a child to take care of... I am 26 and husband is 36, he feels like he's running out of time to be a dad...

It has only been a few weeks since your loss. I am very sorry for this tragedy. Physically, you need to talk to your doctor about when you are ready to try again. Emotionally, only you and your husband can decide when the time is right. However, you need to take some time to grieve. It may feel like having another baby as soon as you can will make you feel better, but when you are caught in grief you cannot mentally prepare for another life. Maybe you could try a support group for parents of lost children? I lost twin girls and I found that group to be very helpful. I'll keep you in my prayers.

Oh wait... c-section delivery... Better to wait at least 18 months because 'they' recommend to not have a birth w/in 2 years of a c-section.

Honestly... I'd wait at least a year to give your body a chance to heal and your heart a chance to grieve.
