Trying to conceive

Hello, thought I would reintroduce myself as I hope to be using the TTC thread soon. For those of you that don't know we had a baby girl this July, but unfortunately she passed away towards the begin of December. She had trisomy 13 which we didn't find out about until she was almost 2 weeks old. We were told then she probably wouldn't live beyond a month so as heart broken as we are we are pleased that we got 4 and a half months with her and did everything we wanted to in the time we had. Because we knew the situation we had already had discussions about having number two and feel that with the new year its time to have a fresh start. We are having a holiday next week but think I will be joining the TTC threads when we come back.

Welcome back Bunny, How are you doing? Hope you enjoy your holiday as much as you can, I hope your stay with us is as short as possible xx

I think from lurking on the BT threads that I read about your baby girl. So sorry for your loss, but so pleased you got to spend time with her.
Good luck with TTC, I hope your stay here is short

Sorry to poke my nose into the TTC forum but just wanted to send you every best wish and a truckload of good luck for TTC. You are one of the most amazingly strong people i "know" and baby K was so lucky to have you as her mummy. Its great to see you back and i hope you and your family are doing ok xxx

good to see you back, and would echo what MM says. I hope your TTC journey is a short one xx

Thank you. We are doing alright, good days and bad days as expected. As I said before although we weren't expecting her to leave us when she did we had already done half our grieving when she was with us and we know her space will never be filled, so why wait? We still want children and she was such a laid back baby that we know she would want us to be happy. Hopefully its a short journey! Only took a couple of months last time, but not putting too much pressure on ourselves.

I already know i will cry when i see your BFP! I know this sounds really internet-weirdy-stalker but i often think of you and K and shed a little tear. I cant even begin to imagine what youve been through. I really hope your TTC journey is a nice short one xx

Welcome back Bunny...I hope your TTC journey is a short one. I think you're taking a great approach in going with the flow and not putting yourself under pressure. I hope you're both doing well XX

Mm you can't cry otherwise I will cry! I think going with the flow is the only way, I don't want to get obsessed about it all. The only thing we've got to do this time is be a little more on the ball with testing near the end of a month. When I fell pregnant with k we didn't test until I was potentially 6/7 weeks due to my af being different lengths, but we will want a test done that has to take place between 8-13 weeks where they take a bit of the placenta to test for genetic conditions just to put our minds at ease. We were low risk with the screening for downs and other similar syndromes so we feel we need to have something done so we could then enjoy the pregnancy.

It's good to see you back Bunny, hope your time here is short though (in the nicest possible way). Hope you're doing ok x

Great to see you back. I'm another old lurker who read about what happened and have nothing but admiration and huge respect for you and your OH. You'll always treasure the time you had with K but fingers crossed 2014 gives you a quick bfp and a healthy baby to celebrate. X

Hello Bunny, like others have said you are an amazingly strong woman and K was lucky to have you as her mummy. I think K would be impressed by your way of thinking and she’ll always be in your hearts. I really hope it’s a short TTC journey for you (maybe we'll end up being tri buddies again). Testing sounds the best way forward to put your mind at ease, like you say so you can enjoy your pregnancy. And of course, enjoy your holiday! x
