Six weeks ago I miscarried; I was 8.5 weeks pregnant, and it was our first pregnancy after a year and a half of trying. Even as recent as a few days ago I felt pretty strongly that I was not interested in or ready to start trying again. In the very beginning I was simply terrified by the thought of going through the emotional torture of miscarriage again. As time went by I grew a little less scared, but still I just had no interest in rushing into trying again. Over the weekend my period started, and ever since I can sense my mind changing, and now I'm considering going ahead and trying this next cycle (my husband is eager to try again but is completely supportive of me and is willing to wait as long as I need). But I'm just not sure. Now I'm concerned that this new-found courage is fleeting and if by some miracle of God I do get pregnant quickly I'll freak out and be an emotional wreck. So my question to those of you who have been in this very spot before is how did you know you were ready to start trying again?
