First cycle after MC
Well it's officially here. A day I've dreaded and also hoped would come so we can start trying again. AF has arrived and it's pretty brutal. Severe cramps, exhaustion, and dizziness.
The physical symptoms stink, but what surprised me was that I had an emotional reaction to seeing the blood. I felt all those same overwhelming feelings as I did when my miscarriage began. In an instant the thoughts and emotions subsided as I realized I was ok, better than ok really - my body has successfully healed. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I'm excited that my husband and I can begin to try again, but I feel guilty because that means I am moving forward. As if the loss of our very first little one never happened.
I'm praying for guidance and acceptance along this journey. I hope each and every one of you are finding the peace you need as well.
