Im not much of a milk fan either apart from in my morning latte.
Do you reckon eating extra protein in the form of meat would help? I could murder a steak right now....
Cant hurt. I would say avocados but i know your thoughts on them!!
@Blossom im not a fan of avocado either but i tried a avocado salad dressing yesterday and it was yummy. Praise is the brand. Low sugar and low carbs too. It may help. I think pumpkin seeds are high protein and good fibre to i hear.
For the ladies here who have lost a baby is it normal to be unsure of wanting any at all? I never thought hubby would spend money to go to wazza so i grieved alot for my lost bubba and kind of gave myself closure. I really expected the psychic to say no im sorry no more for you but instead she said yes but not exactly what i wanted. I want 2 she said 1.Since then its been go go go from hubby but im not sure i want it tbh and yet prior to miscarriage i lived and breathed it. I'm going crazy now im sure. I'm not sure what to do? Any advice?
It's a bit of a cliche but to be honest I think anything you feel after a loss is 'normal.' At various times I have hated myself, DH, the world. I have wanted to give up, to push forward and to just sit and 'be.' We all react differently hon.
One thing I do believe is that the end of the journey can arise at different times and under different circumstances for everyone. For me, the end of the line is when the money runs out. It's as simple as that. Some people may reach the end of their journey because of health issues. It does, after all, take a terrible toll on our bodies. Others will stop for their emotional well-being, or because their relationship has broken down under the pressure of it all.
Some of us (such as how you are feeling at the moment) will just naturally come to the end of the road with an acceptance that this is no longer what I want, or no longer what I need to be doing. They are happy with other aspects of their life and want to concentrate on those rather than continue on the IVF journey. They want to just go back to LIVING LIFE.
I tend to give the same advice to everyone on this sort of thing. It all comes down to listening to that inner voice. Do you still have hope that this can work? Do you want to invest your time, your money, and potentially your health chasing the dream of being a Momma? Only you can make the decision as to when you have reached the end of your journey. And you already hold the answer to that in your heart.
Hugs hon Keep the lines of communication open with DH and I wish you all the very best in navigating this next part of your journey.
infinity, it might be a way of protecting yourself from possible future pain. I know I've been feeling this way more & more lately - not sure if it's the age or protection. take it easy on yourself, you might just need more time to process things. I think at some point we have to think of a life-plan-b if things we want haven't worked out when we've reached the end of the road for whatever reason. (rather than a cycling plan b)
Also hon, I just wanted to add that this section of your post is perhaps quite telling.
You didn't say "I used to want 2..." You said "I want 2....."
Perhaps you do still want to keep going, and you're just (understandably) frightened after the massive loss you've already endured?
