Grief and Loss

Ectopic and Infertility

Davis and Stein's picture

Two weeks after our long-awaited positive, we found it was an ectopic pregnancy. We were devastated. Now I want answers to why. Can I still get pregnant without treatment? Will it turn out to be normal? I feel hopeless and all alone. My family is more tuned in to my sister being pregnant and forgetting about my loss. I hope you can help! Read Debbie and Mara's reply.

Support Groups and Timing Another Pregnancy

QUESTION

Dear Experts,
My husband and I recently suffered a pregnancy loss at 19 weeks. I am looking for support groups in the area. I have been unsuccessful in locating someplace to assist in dealing with this. Also, when do you know you are ready to try again for a healthy baby?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Aimee

Timing Subsequent Pregnancies

QUESTION

Dear Experts,
Three months ago, my twin sons were born prematurely and died the following day. I'm seeing a grief counselor this week, and think that will help me. My question is, how do you know when you are ready to start trying again? My husband and I had already waited 7 years before we decided to try for the first time.

And though I have given birth and held my sons in my arms, I don't have children in my home. I long for a child in my arms, in my house that I can nurture, love and watch grow.
