Tomorrow will be one week since I delivered my little guy. I was 18 weeks 5 days and his estimated gestation was 15ish weeks. I know it's still early, but I can't help thinking of this. I know I want to try again...but I'm absolutely terrified! How do you get the guts to do it again? Are you an emotional wreck through the whole pregnancy? We aren't even going to attempt until I get my emotional state evened out a little bit. I just wonder if I'll be able to go through with it. If I'll be able to endure a pregnancy with out being a total basket case.

In the hospital, right after I lost my first, I was already thinking about trying again. It is the most completely normal feeling in the world.<br><br>
At least you realise that you need some time. For both body and mind. And after that time, if you still want it bad enough, you will find the courage to try again. And it will be hard. And you probably will be a bit of a basket case. But that is natural too. And there are many, many women here who have walked that path. And they will be here to support you when the time comes.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I was and still AM very scared to TTC. When/If I ever get pregnant again, I'll probably be a complete basket case the entire way.

This is exactly how I'm feeling. Mine was only a 1st trimeter loss, but a loss nonetheless.
