I lost my twin girls at 22weeks from a ruptured membrane that made me go into labour


I just want another baby in my arms. I was 22 weeks pregnant with twin girls lastweek and got a ruptured membrane and went into premature labour and lost them. It was horrible. I feel i need to be pregnant again but my doctor recommeded waiting atleast 6 months. They did tests on me and the girls but could not give us an answer as to why it happened. Has anyone else been through this and how long did you wait?

Iam so sorry for your loss so unfair . I understand the overwhelming feeling of just wnting/needing to be pregnant again, must be so hard to be told to wait that long. I was told to wait 1 to 3 months but i cant bare to so have went straight back to ttc but in your situation and being that far on your body will need a bit of time to get back to normal and time to grief for your girls

Oh I'm so, so sorry for your loss. Same thing happened to me, I lost my twin girls at 23 weeks on 21st June, I went into premature labour. Still waiting for the test results to see if they can find out why.
Like you, I'm desperate to be pregnant again, I've managed to get over the initial guilt that maybe I was trying to replace them, I keep telling myself I'm giving them a little brother or sister and now I do believe that.
We were told to wait 3 months by my GP and 6 months by my consultant. I'm planning on going with 3months, unless they can give me a good reason to wait 6. I'm counting down the days to the 3 months is up at the moment anyway, just to keep me going. It might sound daft, but I bought 3 months of prenatal vitamins, put them all in a drawer, each day I take one out and can see the number of them reducing - it's like my countdown clock! I've also started taking my BBT in the morning, and using ovulation sticks. Although I'm not trying to get pregnant yet, it just makes me feel like I'm doing something positive towards it, if you know what I mean!

xx

Hugs mama!! How heartbreaking! There is a 2nd trimester loss sub forum here as well. It is a nice place we can get together and chat about our feelings. I am curious as to why they told you to wait 6 months. Did you have a csection? Because immediatley following a live birth, of a term baby, you can become pregnant by your first cycle. I had a D&E after delivering my son, and I was told to wait 2 cycles. We did not. We started TTC right away. I hope you find your peace. I know how you feel. The desire to have another to hold, is so overwhelming at times. Hugs!!
