It was one month ago today that our 8-week u/s "failed to confirm the pregnancy." Today was the first day since then that I woke up without feeling like I was consumed with grief. I am finding as I go through the day, that I don't feel as overwhelmed by my daily routine- showering, ironing, making my lunch, driving to work, etc. Over the past few weeks getting through those simple tasks has taken so much energy. Today it took a little bit less.
I realize that this may not be a permanent change, but since lately it feels like I don't have much to celebrate, I thought I would enjoy this small step toward healing. I wish everyone who reads this post a day full of small (or not so small) victories.
Hun thats great and sounds like a real step forward! I could have written the part about how simple tasks take so much energy when you feel so low. Sometimes I find just getting up and out of bed a massive strain. (I had a missed m/c at 9 weeks in jan) I hope that the days continue to get brighter for you.
Yay for good days!! You'll have more and more of them, but some bad days lie ahead too.
It's been about 6-7 weeks since my loss, and I can finally think about other things now. I'm even getting excited about TTC again instead of being worried sick about it.
Congrats on making it through the toughest part! Things will only continue to improve for you.
my loss was very early and its only been days for me but at first i didnt even get out of bed. i think physically i'm damn lucky i'm doing so well. except losing 10 lbs in 10 days... which nobody has noticed so i probably needed to lose it... i dont have any more pain, and i'm back at work. but if its gray and cold outside.... it is so much harder for me to function. i litterally just crawled back into bed with a book.but today i'm at work, only a half day, but i'm busy. busy is good.
Congratulations on your step forward! Every little victory counts! I am glad that you are able to get through the day a little bit more easily now. Being able to do the little things is definitely a step toward being able to handle the big things. Good luck with the rest of your healing journey!
