Do you ever feel that way? I remember being so consumed that it felt like every waking moment I was thinking about my loss and my baby. I felt like I wasgoing crazy.

What about you?

Yeah, I remember feeling like that. Like my loss was my only emotion, the only event in my life. Slowly other things started creeping back in.

I have felt that way before too and it still happens every once in awhile. It seems like every time someone close to me gets pregnant or has a baby it happens.

Well its been two weeks as of tomorrow for me, and it is getting better. I still think about the baby I dont have anymore, everyday, but other things have been taking up some of my thought process, like work. Its a nice brake for me, since the whole 9wks I was pregnant, all I could do was think about if I was going to m/c or not. that stress, I do not miss.

I go in spells. I was doing really well there for while. Then last month I had surgery to remove fibroids. While I was in the pre-op room all I could think about is I shouldn't be here right now I should still be pregnant because they wouldn't have been able to do the surgery if I was still pregnant. I was put on 4 weeks medical leave after the surgery and thought about it a lot then.

not only do i think about it all the time, i have flashbacks of the whole day surrounding the surgery. the phone call with bad test results, the emergency ultrasound, the HOURS in pre-op, the anxiety and crying, waking up after losing 3 hours of my life to an operating room full of strangers taking advantage of my vulnerable state. i remember every second, every thought, every terrified feeling. and only when i'm trying to not think about everything do the most overwhelming feelings take over. i haven't slept a full night without medication in almost a month.

so never feel like you're alone in your thoughts/feelings, even if the people around you aren't aware or aren't considerate of your circumstances.

Mollysmom, Im so sorry you went through all of this. What a frightening experience. I can imagine how overwhelming this is for you. I hope your sleeping gets back to normal for you soon. I too, had to take sleeping pills when I had my d&c for a couple of days. Thank God for those! And your right, your not alone in your thoughts, were right here with you in all of them.

I remember a time when it was a constant thought, day and night. Whenever I see children and families I would think about it more. These days all I think about is when we will have one again. We plan to start trying after our wedding next year!
