Have broke down in tears today... My hubby and I started trying a month after our MC but still don't seem to be getting pregnant.. There is a girl on my Facebook who complains every day that she is tired, fed up etc of being pregnant and looks depressed in her pics yet there is us that are desperate to be parents
I'm sorry you are sad and completely understand. I had a mmc then d and c in May. This is our first month trying as we waited one cycle. I got AF yesterday though so first month no luck. I have the same Facebook issue where a girl said something like she wishes she could sleep through the night etc. I want to tell her to shove it. Then you have all those lovely baby photos. I also made the mistake of turning in the movie ' knocked up' tonight ( have you even seen it)? Watching the ultra sounds and heartbeats were tough. I am trying to consider it my own exposure therapy but still sad. Again so sorry for how you are feeling. I hope we both have luck and get BFPs soon. Where are you in your cycle?
Sorry to hear about your loss. I know for me I still deal with mine. I was 13.5 weeks along and miscarried the night of my birthday (the images of everything that happened are like a video that replays over and over at times).
We've been trying TTC since the first AF came. Unfortunately, here I am 4 months later and nothing has been straightened out. My cycles have been 39 days (post MC), then 30, then 35 days. Today is day 27 of this cycle, and I'm hoping to not see AF in the next 12 days (Will try testing after my max cycle date).
And trust me...seeing those people on Facebook or seeing people at work who are pregnant isn't easy. I've leaned a lot on a coworker who dealt with two pregnancy losses before her current pregnancy (with twins!). She's the only one I'm okay to be around because I know what she's gone through (partially). Or the pregnancy announcements. The last one made me cry like crazy because they already have a child.
Every day is different in how I react. Right now I'm between neutral and angry depending on who it is and their situation, whereas my coworker is having her C-section in 7 days, so I'm super excited for her. She warned me the journey post miscarriage is never an easy one. Just know you have support.
I do have to say, the day of my birthday I actually watched "Knocked Up" just to see a pregnancy movie.
DH and I got married June 24 of last year so I wondered if we had same anniversary date!
Sorry for everyone else's losses. It is sad these things happen but nice to have support.
Can I ask you guys enotionally how you have been? I have really bad weeks where I feel like I am crying and thinking about everything and I am almost wondering if hormones can be messed up for awhile or if maybe this is just my grieving process. Not that I want to forget, but I would love to feel better.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend and baby dust to all!
I have times when I'm ok then times where I'm really low! I seem to be more hopeful in the TWW and the thought I might be pregnant again gets me through. Then when someone else announces they are pregnant I feel sad all over again. Somedays I find myself just crying in the shower. I have to say I think about it the second I wake up, lots through the day and its my last thought at night.
For the last 1.5 weeks I have been the least emotional about it. The reason I think is hugely in part of having a heart to heart talk with a friend of mine about how I've been feeling about it. I felt I could open up to her more than my husband. But before this, my mind would always go back to the night we lost the baby.
But this weekend I did get slightly choked up when I was going through some of my old stuff and found a stuffed animal my husband bought for the baby.
