How've you been?

How is everyone feeling today? Have you done anything special for yourself?

If I could, I would make one of these for each of you.

Re: How've you been?

  • I'm having a rough couple of days, but hopefully I can manage to make today be a little better. It looks like it's supposed to get up to around 50° today, so I'm hoping to go for a walk or bike ride later.

    I've not really done anything for myself yet, but maybe if I did it would help me feel a little better. Even if only for a short while. I don't know. We'll see.

  • That looks sooooo good.

    I'm ok. Vascillating between numb and grumpy. I also feel really shitty physically still.

    I skipped out on work to lie around the house. Today's my last day by myself and I don't know what I want to do to enjoy it. Nap, watch crappy tv, bake and eat a dozen cookies or clean.

  • Oh yum! I'm feeling fairly grumpy today. I'm bleeding again, so called the OB and spoke to a nurse. She tells me their standard advice is no exercise or sex until the 4 week checkup (D&C was 2 weeks ago today). So, why did the doctor tell me on the day of the surgery that I could be back to normal activities after 2-3 days and sex was ok after 5 days???? Now I'm worrying about what damage I might've done since I've done both! Grrr....

    Trying to get back to my normal exercise routine was the thing I was trying to do for myself - now I guess I'll just go eat more ice cream! :/

    Bake and eat a dozen cookies and then maybe clean. You can nap and watch crappy tv any time. But feeling shitty and eating fresh baked cookies is good for the soul. ETA: Not the feeling shitty part, but you know what I mean.

  • I went for a run after work and that helps. I am taking tomorrow off just to have a day. just getting through the week feels so exhausting. Physically I am feeling much better and the bleeding has just about subsided. It also kind of makes me sad. My IV bruise is fading and I just feel like losing the physical reminders is just furthering myself further away from when I still had my baby with me, even if the heart had stopped beating.

    I guess as ready as I am for it to be over in another way I will never be ready for it to be over if that makes sense at all.

  • *ticker warning*

    I've had a really crappy few days. I thought my bleeding was almost over, but I over did it with cleaning today and I am bleeding a lot more. I haven't even heard from my doctor so I didn't get any advice on what I should or shouldn't be doing. When I can have sex or run? Not a clue. So cleaning and eating ice cream have been my activities.

    I haven't done anything for myself, but I get paid tomorrow so I might see if I can get in for a pedicure and a hair cut. Oh, and I'm definitely going to be making one of those cakes in the somewhat near future.

  • I had a decent day overall, but today should've been the start of my second trimester, so that really bummed me out. I was so looking forward to this day (back then). Still having a hard time wrapping my head around this whole thing sometimes. When you imagine getting pregnant and having kids this is never part of the fantasy, but for all of us it is part of the reality. I'm still coming to terms with that. I still get the "did that really happen?" Moments. I don't know. Thinking of everyone and wishing you all happier days to come! XoXo

  • @amberhoon‌ - while I know everyone is different, my OB says that she puts her miscarriage patients on vaginal rest until they stop bleeding.

  • It's been 8 days since I passed the baby.  I've cried on and off, during random times.  

    I bought myself a pretty necklace with an angel holding a heart, and an October birthstone (baby was due in October) next to it.

  • We are dealing. My husband feels the same way I do. Went back to work on Monday. Wednesday I had a melt down when I got home. I'm overwhelmed with all the work I missed on top of everything else. Yesterday I would have had my 20 week appt, instead I had my 2 week follow up. I left there with more questions than answers. I'm ready for a bottle (or five) of wine and the weekend.

  • Yes as a matter of fact I have. I went and got a pedicure and a massage. I have been having trouble sleeping the past few nights and I think its due to the fact I am now mid cycle on the cycle we were told we could try again. I have all sorts of terrible thoughts, anxiety in my mid. going through every worst case scenario. So after 4 almost totally awake nights I decided I need to chill. I grabbed a Starbucks and headed for the Spa. It feels great. Highly recommend it. And what ever that is that you posted...Looks amazing tasty!!!! Yummmmmmmm!!!!!!!
