I just zone out now... its like 2nd nature..
Mac the due dates and anniversaries are so hard I actually faired better a few days ago than I expected. A bit of a snivel but I busied myself that day trying to keep my mind off it. I did light a online candle for my baby on the Ectopic Trust site, that got me a bit emotional.... I hope this will be the month for you
lol when I had a c/s with my first I was horrified when not long out of surgery she changed my pad... and put in a voltaren suppository hahaha then when I was in hospital with the last loss before I had my injection they were making me bring my used pad to the nurses station every time I peed to watch my flow. Urrmm after 2 children and over 20 years of AF I think I can tell you when it gets heavy
Lighting a candle, I love that idea.
When we had our first u/s with last bub and they wanted to do an internal, I was very aware DH was in the room. But once we were having weekly U/S I wasn't the slightest bit phased.
Oh gosh the c-sect dignity! Oh boy there were a lot of people in there! DS had to be transferred to a bigger hospital. I had to move onto the ambo stretcher, still numb, and halfway over he realised he needed a 'bluey' for his stretcher - so here I was hovering between two stretchers, my blood soaked bluey on the bed for all to see (my mum was there) while he went off in search of a new one. Same thing happened on arrival at the hospital - except my hubby, BIL and SIL got to see!
The next morning I managed to shower myself, but couldn't bend down to get my pants on - tmi, I asked DH to come in and help me. He didn't even bat and eyelid as he helped me, even though it was rather gory with blood everywhere!
The other one was a nurse who came to look at my wound, so I'd pulled the top of my pants down. Then she shoved her hand in my knickers and pulled them right down to check my pad! Wow!
Wow. I'm learning a lot in here these last couple of days.
Hehe. I've been told some before. I'm pretty aware of what's to (eventually) come, but jeez ladies!!! You sure got some stories.
I'm TTC #1 so no prior horror stories. I haven't managed a BFP at all so I (thankfully) don't have m/c stories either.
Sorry Ijj I won't lie you do lose your dignity but it's so worth it
