I'm on day 4 of the miscarriage and not sure I can do this for much longer. This was my first pregnancy, I had a private scan last week where the heartbeat was slow followed by another scan a few days later that confirmed our fears. I feel so angry I wasn't given the D&C as soon as I was told the heartbeat had gone. I started to miscarry naturally that evening following the scan. Instead the last 4 days have been hell. Painful, traumatic. When will it end? The advice I was given at the EPU was useless. I just feel totally alone with it all. Disgusting and self conscious all the time and alone. Every couple of hours I'm fighting back tears and being at work with pregnant colleagues is so hard. Every time I go to the bathroom I feel sick. I'm so sorry to moan I just wish it would stop. I can't remember what it was like to not be in this.

Can you take some time away from work?

So sorry. I’ve had a very similar experience but I’ve not been in work which has helped enormously. Is it possible to take more time off? I’ve found everyone has been enormously understanding - even if I’ve been vague about a ‘family emergency’. Good luck x

I definitely think you should take some time off work. Your GP or EPU should issue you with a sick note.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this, it’s just awful. Regardless of bleeding you need time to heal emotionally before having to hold things together at work.
