My son Zachary was also a heart baby. He passed away at 4 months and 4 days due to complications related to his heart.

TTC after he passed has been the hardest thing I have ever done. Even now the first thing I think of a morning is "Will this one be ok". Zac's heart condition was just one of those things. There was no genetic link for it, so chances are it won't happen again but I now know that even a slight chance at something means that it can still happen.

Don't let your family pressure you. I have the opposite problem. No one wants us to have another one. Only you and your DH can know when the time is right to TTC.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

Welcome. I am Rachel. I've have 5 total losses 4 were miscarriages but I think the one that affects me the most was the loss of my son Drake at 4 days old. I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet Hunter.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my adorable siggy.

Welcome, I am Jenny, I lost one of my twin girls to NEC two months ago. She was 16 days old. It took us over 3 years to conceive the twins, have you tried charting? It wasn't until I did that we figured out I didin't ovulate and all we needed was a couple months of clomid. and it helped predict exactly the right time to try. There is a charting forum. TTC is so hard, I can't imagine having the extra stress of a loss on top of it.
