Sorry to hear your sad news Emily. I have had 2 miscarriages one at 8wk6days and the other at 11wks3days. After much hard work and multiple IVF cycles later I am currently 8wks4days and did not realise until yesterday how much I am FREAKING out. I am on a knifes edge so snappy at everyone and so anxious which I know is not good but I cant seem to calm myself down and there are times when I forget and am not actively thinking about the pregnancy but them I remember and I'm back to being anxious........................................eve ry twinge every time I go to the bathroom..........it very hard I wish everyone all the best
I wanted to add a little post-script to my posts above to help with hope for other ladies reading this.
After my miscarriage, I launched a campaign of weight loss. This occupied me and helped us stay busy
It turns out that I was more fertile than my obstetrician (who turned out to be a bit useless) thought, and my husband and I welcomed our first child (a full-term healthy girl) 3 weeks ago.
I never knew life could be as wondrous. our cup runneth over.
