AF showed up last night. Exactly 28 days since the day we were told our loss occurred. I feel like it's happening all over again.

I pounded the Easter Candy last night.

I wish I could hug you and eat horrible junk food with you!! It's not fair, I know it and you shouldn't have to feel this way. Some of the hardest things to face is how life just continues to go on as if nothing happened, although we are forever changed.

Along with the chocolatey sinfulness, something else I found that helped was taking a hot bath with smelly good soap and some good, hard crying. Just that alone time in a warm comforting/therapeutic environment being able to bawl your eyes out alone, without anyone judging you or telling you if you are grieving "healthy"or not. Sometimes you just NEED to get it out and crying is probably one of the healthiest ways.

I'm sorry you are feeling this way I'm dreading my first AF. I've come to this realization just a while ago because I realized that my post D&C bleeding has now stopped and somehow it makes me feel better not to see red. Does that even make any sense?

I agree, if you have to eat chocolate, listen to music, take a hot bath, take a walk, and cry it out, do it!!! It's so much better for you to let it out. It's natural and healthy. Don't let anyone tell you any different! We are all here for you if you need to vent! HUGS!!!

Thanks ladies. I'm so conflicted over it. It stopped all of a sudden. And I'm MAD. Can you believe it? I was so upset when it showed up and now I want it to just keep going and be normal.

I'm out of my mind.

So sorry honey. Big hugs.

I don't understand the normal periods, but I'm a master at understanding abnormal. My fear isn't when my period will come, but if it will ever, and if it doesn't by 6 weeks, we will have to start meds to get one again...
I was soooo tired, of using the meds to control cycles over the time we were ttcing... but now we will have to go back to it.

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26

I'm so sorry You are not out of your mind! We're all dealing with the same crap and it sucks Every day is an uncertainty. I felt the same way before the D&C. I was so scared. I just wanted it over with. The second it was done, I wanted to reverse time. Having it done only meant one thing - it was now officially over.

I also worry about AF showing up. How will I feel once it does? What if it doesn't? What if I don't ovulate regularly? Ugh...the uncertainties just never end, do they?

Just remember, You are not alone!!! HUGS!!!
