Still emotional after months gr8ful mummy 1 child; South Africa 8 posts

Hallo everyone,

I had my baby in December 2011 and am so blessed. However, I fell pregnant in Feb / March this year and had a miscarriage in April. I still cry sometimes when I look at my pregnant friends and so badly want to have another baby although I have a darling little 9 month old girl. Doctors told me that she was a miracle and it might be hard to conceive again or chances of miscarriage again.

Two days ago somebody sent a text message about Santa Claus coming soon, but in such a way that you must think she is pregnant in the beginning of the message. So, I didn't read the whole message through and thought she was pregnant. Immediately I started sobbing badly and clinged onto my husband. I thought I would be over this by now.

Ok, so now we decided to get my health on track to start trying next year which I can't wait for. I just have this fear of what if I don't fall pregnant again or have another miscarriage.

I HATE that FB post. Ugh. I lost it last year (my preemie son died last October).



Killed me. Absolutely killed me!

sorry - wish I could say it gets better, but it hasn't for me. I am still bothered by my 2 miscarriages that happened before I got married and the last 2 have been really hard especially the one in Jan. everytime I see someone on facebook with a healthy pregnancy or at work I am bothered by it (i'm a L&D nurse so it really fucking sucks)

You never fully get over that I had my MIL be totally cruel to my husband and I both miscarriages told us we needed to get over it and celebrate other people's children when the whole family was there and we and basically drew attention to us when we quietly went into another room when everyone was going on to us about his cousins baby. Then the second miscarriage right after she was told about the miscarriage she told us his cousin is pregnant I'm still bitter about that keep trying honey god will bless you again

I'm the same way. Whenever one of my friends announces that they're pregnant, it feels like a slap in the face. It hurts, and I don't know if I'll ever stop feeling that way. I don't know how well I would handle L&D. I feel like I would take some of my bitterness out on the expectant mothers. I can imagine it's hard for you.



OP, I'm sorry for your loss. Miscarriages suck. And I know the FB post you're talking about. One of my friends posted it the other day, and my heart sank, because I'd just found out earlier that week that 3 of my friends are pregnant. It's hard to mend when everyone around you is having babies.
