I have been feeling strongly that I am supposed to start trying for another baby. Last cycle we tried and succeeded but had another loss. It got me really down so I got on the mini pill. I feel bad, I know I am not following the Lord's plan but I am so sick of having miscarriages.... I don't know how many I can take... I am thinking of TTC again when Peter turns one, but what if I miss out on a blessing that God has in store for me because I am too scared to obey? It's like the Jews would wouldn't look at the snake staff because they thought it was too silly of a thing to do to be healed...
I am so sorry about your most recent miscarriage. I agree with Brittanie, with your history, I don't blame you for not wanting to. With my few miscarriages, I actually have panic attacks when I even think about getting pregnant again.
Only you and your DH can make the decision. Losses make it extremely hard to follow some promptings of the spirit. It took me going to the temple and having a very specific spiritual experience for me to TTC the cycle we conceived Marsi. I wasn't going to do it...no more TTC=no more losses and I just wasn't going to go through another loss.
I just wanted to say I know what you are talking about and it is one of the hardest decisions I had to make to continue and I didn't have an 8 month old taking up my time as well.
UGH we are in the same place, except I have had two rainbow babies since my three losses in 6 months. The hard part about the losses is knowing that that was a choice soul who just need those few days from conception to loss. I consider my loses bait to get me to the temple and get my family sealed so we can have the most blessing afforded to us.
Any way for us we feel strongly we are having another baby super fast and I am over whelmed with 3 kids under three and my Dh is out of work and we are pretty poor living on $600 cash each month.
I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you can find the comfort you need at this time. It takes a lot of courage to try again after a loss.
1 Nephi 3:7
And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no bcommandments unto the children of men, save he shall cprepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.
I believe this to be true. That being said, I would think the Lord would understand if you needed time to heal. Let the Spirit guide you and you will not be led astray.
