Sorry about your loss. I lost my daugter at 23 weeks in January. My MFM doctor told me to wait unti 6 mons to 1 year. It's definitely a healing process. I even get anxiety now about getting pregnant again! I plan to start trying again in December so it will be close to a year before I get pregnant. I had one daughter at 28 weeks who is 5 years now so I was not expecting pre-e to show up this second time so severe since my doctor told me that he did not think it would be as severe as the first pregancy. Take care!

I'm sorry you lost your child :( I recently lost my child to pre-e and my doctor told me to wait 6 months or longer to try again.

I am so sorry you lost your precious baby to this disease. It will be best to discuss with your doctor as of when it is recommended for you to try again for another baby. There are several reasons that will determine your persona wait time.
Did you have a c-section? Has your BP returned to normal? Is your lab work clear? Are there any other underlying disorders or risk-factors to consider? And, not to forget. It is important to heal emotionally. This can take quite some time. I was only ready after the one year mark of my son's passing.

I would recommend to talk to your doctor, and also see a specialist (MFM, high-risk OB), so you can get properly evaluated and can then decide when it will be time to try again.

Sending you hugs.
