Dh and I talked and I cant decide if we should try for a fourth child after Brian is born. I feel so lucky to be given another chance that I am afriad to tempt fate again. Anyone else thought about more children in the future?

We felt like that after our last miscarriage. We could not decide for anything. I wondered if we should just be thankful for what we have and accept that the boys were going to be it. This one was actually an accident, or I'm not sure I'd be here. I think once you've miscarried that is a common feeling, being afraid to get pregnant again. I couldn't get rid of the baby stuff though, and everytime I thought of never holding a baby again I got really sad. Not now though!!!! I feel complete and know in my heart this is it after this. If you have longing for another I'd say swallow your fears and go for it.

My husband and i have always wanted 4 children but it has been really tough getting pregnant with number 3. I'm really scared that i'll have to go through a bunch of miscarriages again if either this baby doesn't make it or if we have this one and want to go for a 4th baby.
I think it's important to just take it a step at a time and see what time brings.

I actually didn't realize how afraid I was until I got pregnant again! I thought I was over the miscarriage, but being pregnant again has brought up fears I didn't even know I had. I agree with the others about taking it one day at a time. It's the only way I've been able to keep going!
