I haven't posted in this section before and not really sure what I am trying to say - just helps to write it down!!
DH and I have a gorgeous DS who is 4 years old. We started ttc number 2 last July and have had 2 miscarriages this year and I'm starting to wonder if we will only have one DC - it's hard not to think something is wrong with my body in carrying pregnancies ( both miscarriages have been at 5-6 weeks).
I am trying to be positive about things and focus on building a career in my chosen industry however DH and I are still longing for another child and now DS has started asking!!
The most recent miscarriage was only 3 weeks ago so we are still feeling pretty sad about that but I just wanted to hear some positive stories of having one DC - everyone seems to give us the impression DS will suffer somehow from having no sibling.
Thanks so much for sharing chocos - it's so good to hear positive stories of successful pregnancies after losses.
We would love another dc and the longing is so hard to describe to people who haven't experienced it - the longing is always tinged with the sadness for the babies lost - I should be either 9 weeks pregnant or 30 weeks at the moment but lost them both :-(
Hi sorry for your losses x. I also lost 2 babies. 1 before I had my twins and the 2nd between twins and dd3. I waited 6 months after my 2nd mc before ttc again. I just wasn't emotionally ready. I was desperate for another baby but knew I just couldn't cope with pregnancy again at that time. I lost a much needed 2 stone that had been stubbornly hanging on since twins were born and then we went on a family holiday to Disney and I came back pregnant. Had a trouble free pregnancy and my beautiful dd3 was born 2 years ago on her due date. She's just amazing and I feel blessed every day.
My mil also had 2 mc between my dh and his db. Again a 5 year gap in the end
