Hi RV: I am sorry for your loss. We lost our little girl @ 34 wks. I also had a c-section. My OB advised us to wait 7-8mos before ttc. That was June 2004. I Jan 05, we did get pregnat but we lost that one at 6wks in 2 05. I am happy to say though that I am preg again! I have spoken w/my Dr. and she thinks that we can be successful! I will pray for the same for you!

My son was stillborn via C-section on 1/29/05, and my dr. recommended waiting 3-6 months. We will begin trying at 3 months!

HI, we lost our son on 1-26-05 stillbirth delivered by a scheduled c-section due to breech presentation. No cause found. My Dr. told me upon 8 weeks that it was safe for us to try again as long as we were emotionally and mentally ready. Good luck to you and yours. I hope we will get pregnant again rather soon ourselves

My daughter was born via emergency c-section at 28 weeks. She survived for less than 24 hours. She pa__sed away 2 yrs. ago today. My doctor told me to wait between 3-6 months. I got pregnant again after 7 months. He is now 9 months. And now I am almost 4 months pregnant again. Some people just don't understand why I want to be pregnant again so soon. They don't know what it feels like losing a child. To this day, I still miss her a lot and the pain is still there even if this is my 2nd pregnancy after her. No one can ever replace a child that you lost. I am so sorry about your loss and everyone else here. I know how you all feel. God bless you all and your babies.

I'm so sorry for your loss. A friend of mine had a stillborn baby at 38 weeks. She had somehthing called placental detachmentment and the doctors didn't get the baby out in time. Good luck to you and best wishs.

We loss our baby girl Yasmin at 36 weeks. I had a C-Section. The umbilcal cord wrapped around her neck. My doctor told me that after 6 months, we can try and get pregnant again. He told me that once I am emotionally ready, I should be fine.

Hi, I had my 1st a c-section healthy . I delivered my 2nd at 40wks naturally and he was stillborn. I was told that I can start now if I am emotionally ready. My son died from what they call a "true knot"
