It's been 7 weeks since we had to terminate our ectopic pregnancy. I was in physical pain for close to 5 weeks and I feel like I'm just starting to grieve. I'm not one to express my pain so when I told my close family and friends I sort of laughed it off... and I feel like I've been doing that ever since. I am stuck in this place where I constantly think about what I've lost but I'm not sure that I'm progressing to a healthier frame of mind. I still start to cry whenever I think about it. I feel like I should be over our loss by now- my husband is. We only knew we were pregnant for a little over a week before we terminated it, but we'd already started talking about baby names, I'd already designed the baby's room and had started making lists of stuff to get, and we'd already told our parents and a couple of close friends.
Do any of you feel this way- like you should be progressing in your grief but you're not? Am I being unrealistic in my expectations of myself? I'm not really sure what I can do.
