I was just wondering if it was a hard decission to start TTC again after the loss of your baby? What was the hardest part of the decission? What was the main reason you decided to start again?

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

No, actually it wasn't. I couldn't wait to start ttc again after my miscarriage last year. The hardest part was dealing with the grief from the miscarriage itself.

I agree with Grace..

After I was physically ready, DH and I talked about when we'd like to try again; we had originally decided on February. I then told him that I didn't want to wait that long, so we started trying this month instead.

The main reason we wanted to TTC again is because we both want to add another child to our family.

For me, personally, it was a no-brainer.

I just wanted to have a child. We started trying right away after my D&E. I think I just needed another baby to help me heal.

It was not hard to try again, because I really wanted a baby. By the time I got pregnant again (2 1/2 years after my first miscarriage) I was thrilled. I had been told by my fertility doctor that I would never be able to get pregnant without medical intervention. When I lost the second baby it got a little harder. After I lost the third baby I was really grieving and the fourth baby (my 20 month old son) was conceived because my husband and I where in mourning. (My 2nd, 3rd and 4th pregnancy all took place within a 9 month period)

I waited 1 month after my first mc then mc that baby too. They were both with help from a fretility dr. I already had Samantha and I just couldn't face another loss so we stoped. I, like ivissers, was told I would never concieve on my own. Within 4 months I found out I was 8 weeks pregnant with Logan with no help from fertility drugs. It was all mother nature.

For myself, I had to wait for sometime because of my health, but in my heart I would have started sooner
