I think most doctor's are pretty understanding of the fact that you've had a loss...especially since yours was full term...That would be something i'd talk about with your doctor before you got pregnant...I didn't lose my baby full term, but i'm still a nervous wreck about having another stillbirth...I'm being induced early, but not for that reason...If I didn't have another reason to be induced, I probably would of asked to be induced any way.

I really want to be induced at 36-37wks because I lost my baby at 37wks and he was 11lbs. So as soon as baby reaches 8lbs I will ask dr. to induce me. But its not easy beacuse of all the rules they go by. You have to have a medical reason to be induced. I have diabetes so if the baby gets big they will induce me.

My Erin was induced at 38 weeks because Cora died at 38+1 and I told my doctor I was NOT going past that. We had long discussions about the risks of doing so, but in the end he agreed that it was probably better for both me and her to induce. My other two were delivered by another OB, but she's been willing to induce as well (though we both decided to wait to 39 weeks).

Doctors are usually good about it, and also good at giving lots of monitoring at the end too.

I am super scared about the thought of getting pregnant again, provided I would be blessed enough for it to happen. I think you find a doctor who who will listen to your EVERY concern and talks about what would be the best choices for you and baby. They have to know we will be on edge our whole pregnancy... taking each day and week as it comes. I pray we both get our miracle healthy babies and they get to come home with us forever.

Are you trying again right away? Did you use medical assistance to get pg the first time? We are pretty tapped out finacially from trying to get pg, so I pray I am blessed with a healthy natural pregnancy. I said I would NEVER get pg again in the hospital (we have a son who is almost four from an IUI) and I told myself I would be happy with one child, but as each day goes on I feel our family is just not complete. I want to try as soon as possible, as crazy as that sounds.

I'm pregnant now, and just had an appointment this morning. I was only at 20 weeks w/ Carter, so there isn't really a medical reason to induce me, but my OB said that we could discuss induction for my own emotional well being.

I was also thinking of having another baby while I was in the hospital waiting for my little angel but that doesn't mean you're not going to be scared about doing it again after a loss. I only lost mine 10 days ago.
