Going back to work in a nursery

I accidentally posted this in chat so im reposting here...

I had a missed miscarriage last Monday, D&C tuesday. It was my 5th miscarriage in 18 months.

I'm back at work tomorrow, I work in a nursery. I don't want to go, I don't want to go and look after other people's children a week after I found out that my child no longer has a life. I'm so so nervous. I just want to hide in my bed and ignore the whole thing.

I was doing so well, I'm up and about as normal. But now I'm in tears (silently because I don't want to wake my boyfriend up) in bed dreading going to work tomorrow.

Someone hand me a grip?

Sorry this was missed and so sorry for your loss flowers it is such a traumatic time, especially after you have been through it 5 times. I think you should give yourself time to grieve and take it easy. Can you take some more time off? Everything you are feeling is normal xx

Thank you.

I went to my GP and got signed off for another week in the end. Currently at a local cafe taking some time to myself, just sitting at home makes it worse. The thought of going back to work is getting easier day by day so think this is just what I needed.

Hi Smiles, just saw this and had to reply. Sorry to hear of your loss. I was on a thread here last month with some lovely people as we all went through a hard time. I definitely know it took me two weeks before I was ready to go back to work. And of course it's hard for you to work with children at this early stage. Be good to yourself, chatting to friends, posting on here and early hours online shopping all helped me. It does get easier, but it's awful, between grief and hormones.
