Having a bad day.(4 Posts)
I have a healthy happy 18 month old. I adore him and can't get enough of him. I was so excited to give him a baby brother or sister- he loves babies. But I miscarried at 11 weeks in October then at 9 weeks in February. I've been doing ok- holding it together, my father in law in terminally ill so I've been trying to keep it together. But took my little one to a toddler group today where he was all over a young baby, it broke my heart. It hit me again. Then I have an elderly lady telling me to make the most of my little one because it goes so fast. I know it goes fast, and it's killing me the thought I might not get to do it again. I know we are so lucky to have one healthy child, some people aren't so lucky. I feel guilty moaning but it's just how I feel.
I've been doing fine. But I'm feeling rock bottom again now. We're waiting at least a year before we even think of trying again. If I miscarry again I don't think my husband will let me put myself through it again.
Someone lift me up please!!!!!
I really feel for you. Miscarriage is so cruel. I had two missed miscarriages at 12 and 11 weeks. The next pregnancy was successful thank goodness and I had a healthy little boy. I took a small dose of asprin daily throughout this pregnancy - this is something you could look into as pregnancies lost after 9 weeks are often to do with blood clotting problems. Be kind to yourself and enjoy your little boy. Good luck for your next pregnancy.
Thank you for your message. Are you in the U.K.? Did your dr or midwife recommend that? I have read that before. My miscarriage in October I was 11 weeks, had diarrhoea and cramping and baby literally fell out of me, it was so heartbreaking. The one in February I paid for an earlyish scan and was told there was only a yolk which meant I probably never got past five weeks. X
Yes I'm in the UK. The aspiring wasn't recommended to me but I was open with every midwife / doctor / consultant and they were happy for me to tale it, a few said it was a good idea. I found a lot of information in this book -
