2-week follow-up

I thought I was doing pretty good emotionally, but today I feel like I've been run-over. Going back to the birth center for my follow-up today was really tough. I'm doing well physically and we have hopes for almost zero numbers this week, but it was very painful emotionally.

I am sorry you had a hard day. Like I said in one of my other post, I still have a hard time seeing the bathroom at the ER after 8 years. Emotions come in waves, we have good days and we have bad days. It is OK to cry when we have bad days. There is no set time frame when you are done grieving from your loss. I know some people think you should be “over” it, but one never really gets “over’ losing a baby. Be gentle with yourself and allow yourself to feel.

I second the pp's statements...it is still very fresh. You are allowed to have bad days. I think it is healthy to indulge in the sadness and acknowledge it...and it helps to welcome and enjoy the good days.
