I've never done anything like this before so I thought I would introduce myself to the group. I have read through some of the other posts and the support on this board seems incredible and exactly what I need right now. After about a year of trying, my husband and I found out we were expecting in October. We, of course, were ecstatic. I started spotting one morning and rushed to the doctor, where they performed an ultrasound and assured me everything was okay. Two days later, I miscarried while at church. I was a little over six weeks. Needless to say, I have had a hard time coping. After such a long time, I was absolutely thrilled as were my husband and parents, and to have that all taken away in an instant has been heartbreaking. I have done a few things to help me remember my pregnancy--my mother bought me a miscarriage remembrance bracelet and we bought a sun catcher for our window. These things have helped, but there are some days that are so much more painful than others. It seems that everyone around me is expecting and having normal, healthy pregnancies. A close friend of mine at work found out she was expecting soon after my miscarriage, and it hurts knowing that we would have been hitting similar milestones at around the same time. Hearing her talk about hearing her baby's heartbeat makes me want to go in a corner and cry--and then I get angry at myself because I want so badly to be happy for her. I know this has been a long post--but I'm hoping you all can help me possibly move past this jealousy issue and start to feel hopeful again. I look forward to your support and I hope I can offer some of my own.
