Desperate to start ttc after first miscarriage- how do you stay positive?

It's only been almost 2 weeks since I miscarried at almost 11 weeks. All I can think about is how desperate I am to try again. It's all I can think about. I'm trying to focus all my attention on our 1 year old and enjoy him. How do you stay positive between miscarriage and the time waiting to try again? Part of me is petrified in case we can't have another baby and the other part is trying to stay positive thinking we had one healthy pregnancy so that means we can do it again! Help my
mind is all over the place!

Hi Embobolina. I am sorry to read about your miscarriage. flowers It's only been 2 weeks since your miscarriage so you are going to be all over the place. Focus on recoverig physically and mentally to give yourself the best possible chance next time.

I lost my baby mid August and i have only just finished my incredibily heavy first period after my miscarriage. I wanted to wait until I had a proper period so I knew everything was definitely cleared out and over and I was ready to start again.

I think losing a baby changes your whole mindset. I was so relaxed when I was pregnant with my DS but now I know things can go wrong and the worry and anxiety creeps in. I am trying to stay positive. I thought my sadness would swallow me up at times but it hasn't and I am feeling stronger. Good luck with your TTC.

Sorry for your loss.

I have 2 children, miscarried my 3rd pregnancy in June.

Always conceived quickly, but since the miscarriage I've had periods as normal, but no pregnancy.

Having a real wobble today as I can feel the familiar cramps and symptoms that my period will arrive soon.

No idea how to stay positive OP. But wanted you to know you aren't alone.
