What scares you about starting TTC?

For me, I'm scared I will have the same problems with my second pregnancy as I did my first (spotting weeks 5-17, hydronephrosis and IUGR).

I'm also worried about how I will handle 2 children as opposed to one.

I also worry that our house isn't big enough... but that's not a huge issue I guess.

I'm scared about everything! I'm scared of loss. I'm scared it will take me a long time to get pregnant. I'm scared of switching my medication and being off my anxiety meds. I'm scared of finances. I'm scared having 2 kids to take care of.

But I also cannot wait!! My fears don't even compare to the feeling I get when I think about another sweet little baby joining our family.

I also fear a loss.. I think most people do. It's just so hard to comprehend!

All the fear is worth it though, that is true. I had a lot of fear with my first pregnancy, and while that does sometimes hold me back from wanting to TTC, I would do it all over again in an instant!

My main fear is definitely another loss, after having 2 so close together, it terrifies me. I feel so robbed, I just want a baby to hold.

But I also fear taking care of 3 kids, and worrying about money.

I fear a loss, same as most, as well as it not being as easy to conceive next time around, finances, and caring for more than one.

I am afraid that even with clearance I won't be able to conceive, I am terrified of a loss, I am afraid we will mismanage my medication and that either that baby will have health issues, or I will form clots.

I am scared that after 2 great births, with minimal complications, this next one will somehow end up with complications. Don't know why I think that way, I just feel like I've had it too easy up until now or something? Just waiting for the scales to tip? Positive thinking is something I have to work at, it doesn't come naturally.

I'm scared of th failed months where AF returns or that BFN. I'm also terrified about loss and compications. I had a really good pregnancy with my first and I just hope it stays that way with TTC #2. I also hope I can handle 2 kiddos as well

I'm scared that I'll decide I want to TTC and then it will take a long time like it did last time :/ I'm also scared of the reaction from our families.

Oh and a 3rd c-section scares me

As I was just ttc for 4 cycles and this is my 5th and I am back to wttc. My biggest fear was not getting pregnant. But then if i did get pregnant it was the fear of "would I lose this one, too." My 1st, 5th and 7th were all losses (1992, 2008 and 2011) My boys were born in 1994, 1996, 2006 (twins), and 2009.

I'm really scared of morning sickness and how I will be able to cope/ take care of my girls during it all. Both times it was really bad and lasted 4 months!

I'm also scared that something will go wrong, like someone else said, I had 2 uncomplicated births so I almost feel like this next one is ripe for the picking? I really want another homebirth so I'm scared something will happen and I won't get it. OR I'm scared that labor will be much worse than it was last time!

I'm scared to have another loss. I'm also scared to be too fragile while pregnant since I've lost 2. I just want a normal healthy pregnancy. Is that too much to ask???

I also had a really brutal birth experience with my first, and I am worried that it will go the same way.
