A concern that accompanies most of those who experience a pregnancy loss is subsequent pregnancies. Couples question whether or not to become pregnant again and if so, when? Partners may not agree on this subject. Over shadowing this issue is the fear that there might be another bad outcome and the inability to go through that unbearable pain again. Subsequent pregnancies are generally laden with increased fears and anxiety. Do we tell others? What was that pain I just felt? Am I calling the doctor too much? These and other concerns like them are part of journey. “Once you have been to the, “dark side”, there is no more “bliss” in being pregnant”. Please share your concerns and thoughts about subsequent pregnancies.
