Well, since you're feeling low, Pruners and can't say it yourself, I will: what a bitch she sounds!

I'm so sorry you're still feeling sick.

So sorry about your miscarriage pruni. I had one at 11 weeks and felt pregnant for several weeks afterwards. HCG levels remained high for a while afterwards and took about 5 weeks to get back to normal.

Even if it is 5 weeks, Pruni, it doesn't mean you'll feel the way you do now - the levels will drop, and you'll gradually start to feel better. You know how people get hit with baby blues about 5-6 days after giving birth? I had a big emotional crash about a week after losing dd1 - my midwife counsellor told me that this was due to a common hormone drop around this time - this sadly happens whether your baby has been born alive, or didn't make it. You really do need to take as much care of yourself as you can - horrible as it sounds, we bought lots of comedy DVDs after getting dd1's diagnosis - needed to stop ourselves just thinking all the time, and it really did help. It does get better, I promise. It's very grim to start off with - I used to wake up crying and cry myself to sleep over dd1, but it did get better, and so will you. Keep posting her, and do try the Miscarriage Assoc and something like babyloss - it does help to talk, and takes some of the feeling alone and faintly bonkers away.

Oh God, sorry. Didn't mean to make you feel even worse Was trying to be reassuring - failing dismally.

It did wear off, as the hormones wore off I suppose, and the immediate ghastliness of it all too I'm sure. The symptoms certainly lessened.

I don't know what to say. I'm so, so sorry that you lost this pregnancy.
