There are so many different emotions that accompany a pregnancy loss, from fear, to guilt, to shame, to anger and frustration. Once you do decide to get pregnant again, you might feel hopeful, scared, guilty or that you are trying to “replace” the baby you lost.

A Tough Road

Talk To Someone
Often times, a woman will try to keep her feelings and emotions about her pregnancy loss on the inside. Whether they don’t want to upset their partner, their family or friends, or complete strangers, they keep their feelings bottled up. This is not a good way to deal with loss, and women should not try to “be strong”. Dealing with pregnancy loss is such a trying and emotional time, women should open up and try to let their emotions out, so that they can heal. Many women only talk to their partners about their feelings during this time, while other women find support in mothers, sisters, friends or family members. Many women turn to the internet for support, in the form of Facebook groups or online message boards. Some women feel like the best choice is to talk to a counselor or therapist about their issues. Whoever you are comfortable talking with, that should be the person you choose to let your feelings out and begin to heal emotionally. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

A Tough Road

Wait Until You Are Ready To Try Again
It’s very important that couples are open and honest after a pregnancy loss about their decision on when to try again for a baby. Your body may be physically ready to try again before you are ready emotionally. It may take weeks, or months, or even years before you reach a place where you are ready to try again. Keep the lines of communication open with your partner, and don’t shut down. Make sure that you don’t try for another baby until you are ready. Likewise, make sure that your partner feels comfortable about your decision to try again, and don’t just jump into it without considering his feelings as well. The decision to try again after a pregnancy loss should be made by both parties, and neither should feel rushed or forced into the decision.

A Tough Road

Know That Your Feelings Are Normal
There are so many different emotions that accompany a pregnancy loss, from fear, to guilt, to shame, to anger and frustration. Once you do decide to get pregnant again, you might feel hopeful, scared, guilty or that you are trying to “replace” the baby you lost. When you do have another baby, there are another set of emotions that will accompany that as well. When you acknowledge your feelings, you validate them, but don’t give them the power over you. You are normal, your feelings are normal, and you will make it through this. Keep in constant communication with your partner and stay close to each other during this difficult time.
