If I was the type to allow myself to feel guilty for things like this, I'd feel guilty for feeling so relatively good and recovering so quickly. Since the day after I have felt no physical pain, the bleeding has been easy as a period, not even heavy at all. My energy is back, my nausea disappeared, my boobs don't hurt... In short, my body feels pretty darn good. I started training for a new job today. I even went for a run today. In so many ways, life goes on.

But then, driving home from work, it hit me... I really, really miss being pregnant. I mean, I miss THAT pregnancy. And then I thought about our daughter who should have been six yesterday. I cried a few minutes, wiped away the tears, and pulled into the driveway to see four of my kids running out to the car to carry stuff in for me.

So, maybe this should be a really difficult time, but I'm kind of thankful that I have so much going on even still. I'm thankful I can honestly say I'm doing okay.

I'm glad that you're doing so well. I think it's healthy to allow yourself those moments to grieve and feel sad when you need to, but not dwell on it. Everyone handles things differently and there is nothing wrong with feeling relatively good.

I agree with this completely! I'm glad things are going well for you for the most part. It's hard to accept so many different emotions that your going thru!
