This may be a trigger, talk of miscarriage and mental health ..
It’s six months now since my miscarriage. I was hoping to be pregnant again, because I read all the reports that it was better to get pregnant in the first 6 months after. I’m so sad I’ve not conceived. I think about my baby every day. I’m trying to move on, not think about it, but it’s really hard. I’ve been to counselling. I’m on anti depressants. I try to occupy my mind with other stuff, but every so often I break down. Has anyone got any coping techniques. When something triggers me, it’s tears, sobbing, just heartbreaking feelings. It’s really tough at work, and six months on, I feel I should be able to cope better. Work said that I can’t keep crying, (I’ve cried once in the last month). I tried googling how to stop grieving, because it’s effecting my job, and happiness overall. Does anybody have any tips?
The second month after mc, I downloaded the app again, got some internet cheapie ovulation sticks, charted my cervical mucus etc. Last month I was convinced I was pregnant, then my period started and I was devastated. So I deleted the app, threw away the sticks, said to my fiancé that “I’ve given up”, and tried to occupy myself with my dog, gardening, hobbies.
It’s such a hard time. I’m worried I won’t conceive again, I’ve started reading about when to stop the trying. I’m trying to come to terms with not having a child. I’m driving myself looney.
I just wanted to get it off my chest because it feels so hard.
