We suffered an infant loss in July. Our baby girl was born June 27th and died July 9th. She had trisomy 18, a chromosomal abnormality. We have a 3 & 5 yr old that were conceived very easily as well. We decided to start ttc right away and I'm in the 2ww of my second postpartum cycle. If we conceived this month my edd will be June 18. I have mixed emotions because I really want another baby but I'm not thrilled about having to go thru another 9 months (or 10 since our baby girl was born at 43 wks). I'm also obviously scared about having another loss and putting my 2 older children thru that again.

Hi Chris, welcome to the board. I'm so sorry about your angel baby, (((HUGS))).

Being pregnant again is going to be a tough road to go down, do you think that having the testing done might calm some of those fears? I would do whatever you think will help your mental well-being.

I'm so sorry about the loss of your little girl, Megan, sending you lots of (((HUGS))). A lot of the moms on here have had the same emotions, it's very scary to go through pregnancy again after such a devastating loss. You found a great place for support, we also have a board that will soon become Stillborn & Infant Loss Support if you want additional support: http://forums.ivillage.com/t5/Stillborn/ct-p/iv-ppbornstill
