  • Depsite everyone trying to cheer me up and get my mind off of it, I did alot of crying. For me, it is important to acknowledge my grief, feel it, and let it pass, or it will get forever "stuck" in the form of anxiety. So, I respectfully requested some time, and let myself grieve. I think that made it tolerable.

  • grieve.. everyone has to grieve. i cried a lot and start doing things to get it off my mind. say a prayer for my children (4 miscarriages) to be watched over in the spirit world and that they know i love them even if i never got to meet them.

  • Gardening...

    I know that sounds strange but it is so peaceful and the fact that I could make things grow when I could not make my baby grow was really helpful in my healing.

    Also getting pregnant again fairly quickly really helped to heal my heart.

  • Time...time is the only thing that will help. I had a few friends and family around me for support and my husband was absolutely the best...but time is what made things better. I actually m/c 2 babies before I got pregnant again and had my son. Talking to other girls who had been through the same thing helped a lot as well and I made some great friends through chat boards and cafemom. Just take time to heal...
