AF the monthly reminder that you're not pregnant is a bit worse after a MC
After a miscarriage in November I've had 1 cycle that started exactly 28 days after my 2nd d&c. I needed 2 as the first surgery did not remove the fetus. We BD during my most fertile days and of course the TWW was too much and I took several pregnancy tests starting 4 days before my period. I could have sworn that the first test revealed a vvvfl and that was confirmed by other members on glow. After that test however, the vvvfl disappeared and now I can just tell that AF will be here tomorrow (unexpectedly expected of course).
Friends who aren't actively trying are getting pregnant and I can't help but feel irritated and envious. I feel like there's something wrong with me and possibly even worse, I am concern about not being able to get pregnant again. Can anyone relate to this? Any tips on how to move on and feel more optimistic? I hate that I put on about 5 lbs in the 2.5 months I was pregnant and I'm having a hard time getting motivated to lose it. I feel bad about myself and my body and need some support.
Thanks for allowing me to vent and please let me know if you have any suggestions.
