What a relief

     So, the doctor's appointment is over.  Such a big weight off my shoulders.  Overall, my doctor is very happy with everything. She is astonished by my weight loss.  She actually asked my husband if I was really eating, not just starving myself.  She's shocked I actually listened to her, but, as I told her, I have great motivation:  I want another baby and I want to be healthy for that child.  I know I still have a long way to go, but I've also come so far.  I know I'll never be supermodel skinny, but if I can lose another 50 pounds, I'd be happy.  More is even better, but I'd be fine with 50.
     We've been given the green light to start trying again next month.  She's still very concerned that we aren't waiting long enough, but she also understands how hard it is to wait after losing a child.  She's been very good to us, I'm so thankful to have found this office.  All of the doctors I've seen there are great.  She made it clear, though, that if we were to get pregnant soon, another c-section is guaranteed.  But, I'm not worried about it.  I knew the chances of me having to have another section were pretty big so I've accepted that fact.  Especially if we have the antibody issue again.  I'm okay with it.
     I'm just glad it was good news.  We're still waiting on some blood work results but all is go!  Now starts a whole new journey.  I just hope we can stay positive through it all.

A baby is a big motivator! I think a lot of drs say after 6 mos after a csection is ok to try again. I've even heard of some saying 3 mos.
