Hi all, thanks for setting up this forum I think it is much needed. My wife and I had a miscarriage in December that completely side-swiped us. We have a little daughter Eliana, and everything went so smoothly with the pregnancy maybe we just took it for granted... We could never imagine it would go so differently the second time around.
We just moved to a new country in the middle of a pandemic and only 2 weeks after arriving we miscarried. Thankfully my wife was able to go through the process at home so we could be together. Friends and family were really supportive but in a way it felt like we didn't want to speak to anyone.
The miscarriage caused a lot of tension between us. I just buried it and tried to distract myself and my partner took this for indifference. However, after a few weeks we started to really talk about it and 3 months on things have got much better.
But now my wife is really excited to have another child but I still don't know how I feel about it. I'm not sure if it's grief or fear but I feel like I want some more time before we try again. I've spoken to her and she is understanding but I know that she really wants to try again.
Does anyone know have any advice about this situation? Not just in the context of miscarriage but trying for another child in general?
