I've been on the over 40 pregancy board and now on the pregnancy loss board. Everyone on all the boards has been so nice and helpful. I lost my little girl at 17 weeks on June 22. I had an amino on 6/14 and by that Friday my water broke, and by the next Tuesday I was having to deliver my baby. I thought I was doing the right thing by having the amino, now I wish I had not maybe my baby would still be here.
I didn't plan the other pregnancy she was my sweet little miracle. But I had gotten very attached to the idea of a new baby in the house. I have a 18yoa DD and 5 stepchildren ranging from 31-13yoa. The 13 DD is blind and autistic (adopted). My DH and I have been married for 10 years and he is 52, 10 years older than I.
After this he said he could never go thru the loss of a child again. It devestated us both. He had lots of good reasons as to not try again: age, health (his and mine), etc. But yesterday he changed his mind. I was so happy! Nothing will replace my little angel Lacie, but I still want a baby to hold and love.
So.........question: how do I start? I know I should wait a couple of months to get my cycle back in gear, but do y'all do charts or ovulation tests or what? I want to get pregnant again quickly and want to know what would be the best way to insure conception.
