How do I deal with the fact that my last baby is my last when I want another baby?

I'm having a hard time. I lost my right ovary to a cyst about 4 mths ago. I want to have another baby but it just isn't happening. We got pregnant with Morgana 4 mths after having my son Anthony and i was hoping it would be that easy to get pregnant again. But then I lost my ovary and they said it wouldn't be much harder to get pregnant again but it has and I'm very disappointed. I look at my little girl and wish for anther baby maybe 2 and I don't think its going to happen. How do I deal with the fact that she could be my last baby? I'm so disappointed.

So your daughter is 7 months old? I would say give your body more time, it could be that your body just isn't ready for another pregnancy yet, you have two kids under the age of two which can take a toll on your body. It's reccommended that you wait at least a year between pregnancies so your body can recoup. I know it's hard but try not to be disappointed that it hasn't happened yet just because it happened quickly before doesn't mean it's going to be that way this time, and many doctors won't even start running tests till you've been trying a full year.
