Hi everyone. I'm really sad to be joining you here and can hardly believe it's true. I was rushed to hospital in severe pain in the early hours of Tuesday morning where I miscarried at 11 weeks (although it looks like the baby died between 8 and 9 weeks). This was my first pregnancy and I am 35. Physically everything is going as well as can be expected and mentally I think I'm not doing too bad. Obviously I'm really upset and sporadically cry (anywhere, anytime) I am also scared that I will never conceive again or carry a baby to term. I was very bloated with the pregnancy and I still am. I'm finding this quite distressing because I still look pregnant and none of my clothes fit (I am using safety pins to hold my jeans together). It was on my list of things to do, to buy new clothes that fit, but I don't want to do that now. How long will the bloating take to go? I feel embarrassed to go out looking pregnant when I'm not. We are going out to dinner with my mother-in-law, brother-in-law and his girlfriend tomorrow night and I don't know what to wear because I don't want my stomach to show (silly the little things that are upsetting). Wishing you all the best with getting the healthy, happy babies you long for.
