Every day is another day

It’s been nearly 6 weeks since my miscarriage… wow, now that I say that It seems longer than I expected it to be.
It’s also been over a year since I started trying to convince my husband to have children. (I guess that’s the first form of “trying”)

6 weeks.
6 weeks of ups and downs… 42 days of thinking about it… several times a day.
Physically, I’m okay… my OBGYN confirmed it.
She even announced that we can start trying again.
Emotionally and physiologically I’m not even close to okay.
Every day’s a battle, Every day’s a challenge.
Not many people know that it’s so difficult. Not even my mother.

I feel like a bipolar person. One day I’m happy, able to talk about it.
And able to laugh… really laugh.
And then something happens…
Something small, I see a newborn baby. And the whole day I’m miserable.
Or something big happens, a good friend announces her pregnancy…
And for hours I cry. After that  I’m depressed for days.

I feel like I’m climbing a mountain, and when I get close to the top an avalanche knocks me back down and I have to dig myself out of the snow before I can start climbing up again.

All I can hold on to is what my husband said,

“Just take it day by day, and every day is another day”

  1. It’s hard. The down days are just SO down that you feel like you’re going crazy. I’d like to say they get better but so far…no. 6 months and counting since mine and I’m still a nutjob! There are the bright days in between, and they give me hope that the good will outweigh the bad. One day.

    • So… I have a question, do you think our hormones could still be out of wack?
      All of a sudden last Sunday I started feeling like myself. I was happy again and feeling good again. Of course I still feel sad about the mc. But overall I felt better. And it’s stayed. I thought at first it was just a good day and it won’t last. But it’s Wednesday and I’m still myself.
      I wonder if I’m pregnant. Maybe it’s my hopes that make me think that. But I wonder if pregnancy hormones are making me feel better. I don’t want to take a test until next Tuesday. Because I’m scared to have a false negative if I do it too early.
      I really hope so. But if its true. If I am pregnant again than it may be hope that you too can feel back to normal. This won’t last for ever.
