I know this is a bit late but just seen your thread, how did you cope in the early days and how are you getting on with life now? We lost out baby last night at 5w3d and I know it's not even been 24hrs yet but already worried how i'm going to survive a whole day tear-free. Tell me it gets better?

Hey Devon Mummy and Hazzerr, we had a Mc at 7w3d and was honestly horrific. But now we are a week and a half since I had the ERPC and I am doing better...
I prefer to be home that to socialise...but I guess this is relatively normal. Work were really good about it, as I had told them I was pg. Which has made it easier.
You are allowed to be emotional and crying is part of that. Last monday, I got home from work and spent a good hour crying. We are allowed to grieve. I am still tired and emotional. Need to go to the epu for a scan in a week just to check everything went ok.
My love goes out to you both, as I know how you are feeling. x x x

We had the surgical option 3 weeks ago, I couldn't face doing it naturally. Personal choice.
I bled for about two weeks, mostly like a period, but because I have a bicorunate uterus, it came in waves. Used my hot water bottle a lot, which was great. Also took a mixture of ibuprofen and paracetamol. Have now stopped wearing pads and taking pain killers....which I am really pleased about. I also feel far more normal. I am still tired. But I guess that is normal.
We have started trying again so I guess we will have to wait and see.

Glad to hear you are doing okay, I'm doing surprisingly well, was not expecting myself to recover so quickly. I feel a bit guilty about getting back to normal after only a week and a half (feels SO much longer though). Should I be guilty about moving on so quick?
