After a m/c! so to all you ladies, who are continuing to TTC? I admire you!  :heart:

After my 2nd missed m/c (in 9 mos.), I have been 'trying' to find the courage to try again? But, I am having a hard time finding it, I 'think' if I ever got pg. again, it will need to be a surprise, or just not at all.

Losing our last baby just devastated me too much, and I just don't think I can go thru the 'thought' of losing another one.

I admire all of you, who continue to try after a few loses, I wish I could find that courage, too!

I pray for, not only, a BFP, but (most important) a healthy, sticky beanie for all of you, as well!  :smileywink:

Oh.....{{{{hugs}}} Kiki. I'm so sorry you lost your LO to trisomy 15. My 3rd loss was due to tri 22. I know how it feels to totally want to throw in the towel. It sucks big time. I almost said forget it, but figured we'd give it one more try. At our age.....unfortunately, it's almost a "crap shoot." But, thankfully I was lucky enough to get one more good egg. I got pg fairly easily too, so maybe that's a good sign for you. But, it's so terribly difficult to keep going through losses.....I totally understand. It's so physically, mentally, and emotionally draining. You just have to do what's best for you, sweetie. {{{hugs}}}
