Feeling Good...Finally

It will be four weeks tomorrow since the miscarriage and I am finally feeling good again. Time is a great healer. Don't get me wrong, I still have emotional moments but everyday is getting a bit better.

Thanks to everyone for the advice on what to do about the in-laws visiting. DH and I had many discussions about it over the weekend and he phoned his parents to tell them not to book any flights until we meet with the doctor next week. As DH pointed out I may not be able to start an FET for another 2-3 months -- we'll have to ask the doctor about that next week. Not sure how long it takes to recover from a miscarriage (or when I should expect Aunt Flow to make a visit), plus I need to recover emotionally from this loss before trying the FET. Here's hoping the doctor will have answers next wee.

Tomorrow I am planning on a bit of retail therapy to pick up my spirits. I must remember to stick to the sales racks since we have to save some dollars for another FET. Although, I must admit that I bought an amazing magenta Coach bag over the weekend. Okay, it was at an outlet and was marked down 70% (maybe because it's magenta) so I don't feel too guilty. Now, what can I wear a magenta bag with?


It is what it is said...

Nothing wrong with a little retail therapy. I'm in need of some myself and have my eye on a way too expensive Louis Vuitton bag that I can in no way justify (well, maybe as an "I lost my job and it's my birthday" type thing, but even still, it'll be a stretch).

It's hard to say when AF will return, but, hopefully soon enough as that will set you on a path toward your FET. Some clinics will let you cycle with the first period post loss, most would prefer you cycle with period #2.

Enjoy the Coach bag...you MORE than deserve it.

You are amazingly strong. I can add some retial therapy ideas. There is a red leather handbag by Chloe that is amazing. And totally out of this world expensive ;-) Do you deserve such a luxury ? YES!!!

Hope 'she' turns up soon so we can all move on to FET with you.

Glad you are feeling a bit more the thing. Losing a pg is just a horrible physical and mental experience, not much supported by our real life. So I'm betting they will want you to wait at least one cycle.

And it sounds like you're in a much better place for that wtf meeting now, you were wise to wait. Hoping the RE has good ideas for your FET.
