    Default Period following a miscarriage

    I suffered a miscarriage 5.5weeks ago. I have just got my period and am feeling mixed emotions. It feels like a kick in the guts and reminds me of what I have lost... A tiny part of me thinks it means I can at least try again I just don't think I'm ready just yet.

    I cried when I got my period, hubby didn't quite understand why I was upset.

    Does anyone else feel alone in their grief? Hubby is great but doesn't talk about our loss and seems like he is over it. I still think about it a lot.

    Hi @maybee baybee,
    I had a D&C nearly three weeks ago, and have just started the wait for my period, so I don't know yet what it will be like. AF is still a long way off, but I had bleeding and spotting for over two weeks after the procedure. When I was pregnant, I would be amazed that I didnt have my period. After the D&C, it was a constant reminder that I wasn't pregnant, just in case for a minute it had fallen from the front of my mind.
    When we first lost the baby, my partner told me she was 'trying to be strong' for me- that she thought she couldn't show how upset she was as someone needed to keep it together. I told her that I would prefer if she didnt try to hide it from me, and doing so made me feel like I was being silly for being upset. Its also been really hard for her in that people ask her if Im ok, the sort of questions they won't ask me (in case they upset me), not realising that she has grief and loss as well. Maybe it could be similar for your DH as well.
    Hope things are getting better.
