Hi, I haven't posted here in a long time. I have had three losses. The most recent was in November. I would have been 37 weeks today.
My question is, have any of you ever experienced "labor like" symptoms after a loss around the time you should have been delivering? My hormones seem to be going crazy right now and that's the only thing I can figure out. But I feel crazy even mentioning it to anyone. Any thoughts?
I haven't experienced the pains you are describing, but the one thing I have learned that is universal to loss is that there really is no "normal." The emotional pain of losing a baby is so great, it can cause just about anything.
Right before my EDD of my loss, I went through some psychological "labor signs" but nothing physical. I was nesting and channeled it to prepare the nursery for the adoption and to clean the house really well (it needed it anyway). I was going through some grief-related mood swings--really grateful for what I do have one hour and cranky the next.
