We are getting really close to closing the deal on another child to our family. Though I very much want to become pregnant again, naturally I have some pretty big fears going forward. Having been through so much loss already, even when/if I make it past my historical danger-of-losing zone, pregnancy after loss is not easy.
The innocence of not worrying about every little thing, your mind didn’t float over to the ‘what-if’s’ as much — but worry and what-if’s are a huge part of pregnancy after loss. It opens a big floodgate of new stresses, anxieties and often there really isn’t any answers to what ‘went wrong’ before and we feel even more helpless and not in control.
