So once was bad enough and when the second time came around....how do or did you feel?
I feel that our 1st MC was extremely difficult. It didn't help that my process was drawn out over several weeks and had a D&C. But I felt destroyed for quite some time.
Now with Round 2, I do feel sad, the emotions come and go in waves the same as the 1st time, but I kind of feel more numb this time. Not sure if I'm putting up a front as a way to cope. I also feel more angry! Now we know that something is definitely wrong and I just feel like we need to solve this issue so we can move on and try again. I don't know if this is day 2 syndrome after MC but it feels strange to me, I feel that I'm mourning a bit different.
It also doesn't help that with 2 under our belt, the few close people that know about our losses have said some pretty crazy things. It's almost like the more MC's, people say stupider things. Here were some of the initial responses:
1. Oh, you guys need to take your time. You tried too quick.
2. That ballet class you were taking is very intense.
3. Maybe you guys should take a longer break.
It was bad enough that someone told me with our last loss that "this is your fault, you know, you are not eating right, you are too skinny."
I obviously know all these things are absurd and I can say my husband and I have laughed out loud after a few of these, but I can tell you I was far from laughing when I first heard them.I realize people just don't know what to say sometimes but some of these ladies have gone through a MC for goodness sake.
I just needed to vent a bit ladies.
Thanks and hugs to you all!!!
