I had a miscarriage At 7 weeks pregnant around 4 weeks ago and it was absolutley devastating, me and my boyfriend were so happy when we found out I was pregnant then for that to happen was the worst thing, it was a bad miscarriage the bleeding only stopped 4 days ago and the pain was horrible physically and emotionally, I got signed off work by my doctor for 2 weeks and then had 2 weeks holiday already booked in work, today was my first day back and as soon as I sat down to take calls (I work in a call centre so very customer based) I just burst out crying, I feel I'm still not emotionally ready for work as it feels like I have only just finished my miscarriage because the bleeding literally ended days ago; my boss sent me home and I have a docs appointment at 7 but j don't know what to do, is it selfish to ask for more time off as it happened 4 weeks ago now? Will the doctor understand? I don't know what come over me when I got into work I just felt so depressed instantly. Thanks for any advice

Hi op sorry to hear about your miscarriage, I too have been through this, I think everyone is different in my case I had 2 weeks off work but when I went back to work I felt really emotional too.
If you don't feel ready speak to your GP they may well sign you off for a bit longer, I know how hard it is but sometimes trying to get back to normal is helpful. Your hormones will still be settling so this can make you feel really emotional.

Be kind to yourself it will get easier, miscarriage is a horrible thing, and only you know when you are ready. Miscarriage can be quite misunderstood I found,mine miscarriage association website was really useful migh be worth having a look.
