My Current Pregnancy
I just had a miscarriage & I am still recovering from the D & C.
I've had two pregnancy losses in the last year.
My Pregnancy Loss
I lost my first baby last April when he was 18 days old. we lost him due to a hospital infection. I still feel we were cheated by not being able to have him with us as he wad healthy & perfect.
we decided to wait till I heal and became pregnant this February. we were really happy & excited until we had our first u/s. we found out that the baby stopped growing @ 9 weeks when I was supposed to be 12 weeks. That was a big shock as finding a dead fetus was the last thing on my mind. I had to have a D & C and currently I’m emotionally so drained out that I’m scared to even think about another baby.
Deciding to Get Pregnant Again
I know I want a baby. but I’m not sure if I’ve any strength left to handle this. first of all, I want to recover from this shock. When I’ll feel I’m ready both physically & mentally and if it is destined to happen, it'll happen.
- I decided to get back to work immediately after my first loss. it eventually helped me to recover faster. however, this time I’m taking it slow as I don't want to risk my health.
- we should always listen to our 6th sense and do whatever is necessary even if the doctors say otherwise. they are not always right.
- rather than letting everyone come & cry over the loss, it's better to mourn it properly and alone. mourning eventually helps.
- let others behave naturally with you. you shouldn't b treated as an alien with whom they can't share their happiness. take it slowly but be open. it helps.
